Fructose-Glucose Syrup and Glucose-Fructose Syrup
Fructose-glucose syrup is a sweetener that contains more than 50% fructose. The fructose content can reach up to 90%.
By way of contrast, if the fructose content is below 50% but over 5%, glucose-fructose syrup is used instead of fructose-glucose syrup (glucose is listed first). When the fructose content is less than 5% it is simply called glucose syrup, which can be completely fructose-free, as is the case for all Frusano products.
Fructose-glucose syrup and glucose-fructose syrup both correspond to the High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) commonly used in the U.S. For people with Fructose Intolerance, fructose-glucose syrup and glucose-fructose syrup must be avoided. For more information, head to: High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS).
