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%. With a fructose content below 50%, but more than 5%, glucose-fructose syrup is used instead of fructose-glucose syrup, which means glucose is listed first. With a fructose content of less than 5%, simply "glucose syrup" can be used and the fructose is then hidden (glucose syrup can also be completely fructose-free, as in all Frusano products, without exception).
Fructose-glucose syrup and glucose-fructose syrup both correspond to the High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) commonly used in the USA, which is also on the rise in Europe. For people with Fructose Intolerance, fructose-glucose syrup and glucose-fructose syrup must be avoided. For more information, see: High Fructose Corn Syrup HFCS
