A Contrarian View Of The Health Impact Of Fructose: It Helps Control Blood Sugar In Diabetics

June 21, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Scientific evidence of the dangers of fructose consumption continues to pile up, but new research takes a contrarian view that should cheer up the sugar industry. A Canadian review of 18 clinical trials involving 209 participants with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes found that fructose significantly improved blood sugar control. The improvement was similar to that achieved by an oral anti-diabetes drug. Moreover, the improvement came without adverse impact on body weight, blood pressure, uric acid (gout) or cholesterol. Participants in the trials were fed diets in which fructose was incorporated or sprinkled on foods such as cereals or coffee.
