wellll it has more fructose than high fructose corn syrup. People say it has a low glycemic index & it does, but it has so much fructose, that it kind of makes it less good for you.
It's made the same exact way as high fructose corn syrup, with genetically modified enzymes & stuff. It's really not much different than high fructose corn syrup altogether.
fructose is digested in your liver, it is immediately turned into triglycerides or stored body fat. Since it doesn’t get converted to blood glucose like other sugars, it doesn’t raise or crash your blood sugar levels. Hence the claim that it is safe for diabetics.
But it isn’t.
That’s because fructose inhibits leptin levels, the hormone your body uses to tell you that you’re full. In other words, fructose makes you want to eat more.
