FRUCTOSE – is a type of sugar that can be found in fruits and vegetables. It occurs in nature much less often than glucose. Is a component of both inulin and sucrose. A characteristic feature is that it is clearly sweeter than glucose and sucrose. Therefore, you will often find it in food products as a replacement for sugars. The combination of fructose and glucose gives us the well-known table sugar. In order to be used by the body, must be metabolized by the liver. Therefore, it is not very suitable for the so-called. “fast source of energy”. In sports supplementation, we sometimes find fructose in sports drinks or carbohydrate supplements. Rarely seen as a deliberate addition to meals. Athletes mainly consume fructose in its natural form, contained in fruits.

Dosage: it is recommended not to exceed 35 g per day.
