Fructose Consumption Does Not Lead To More Eating Or Weight Gain - Research

February 10, 2011: 11:46 AM EST

Consumption of fructose, a natural sugar found in fruits and vegetables, does not lead to greater food intake, nor does it affect body weight or fat levels in the blood of overweight or obese people, according to a study that examined earlier research. The review looked at data regarding the normal consumption of fructose and any subsequent development of alterations in lipid or and/or glucose metabolism or weight gain in overweight people. The researchers did not find any relationship between fructose and hyperlipidemia or increased weight, noting that the findings applied to “both normal weight people and people that are overweight or obese." The review was performed by scientists affiliated with a food industry consultancy and with food ingredients provider Tate & Lyle, whose products include Splenda Sucralose and high fructose corn syrup.
