Otherwise known as fruit sugar, fructose is a naturally occurring monosaccharide found in honey, fruits, flowers, berries and most root vegetables. For commercial purposes, it is most commonly produced from sugar cane, beets, and corn. This particular type of crystalline fructose is derived from corn. The odorless crystals are white in color with a sweet, neutral flavor. Fructose is the sweetest of all naturally occurring carbohydrates. It is also the most water soluble. Being that it is both quick to absorb and slow to release moisture, it makes for an end product that has a softer, smoother texture and that will have a longer shelf life. It is commonly used in combination with other natural sweeteners to enhance the flavor of beverages, foods and baked goods. The high relative sweetness and lower glycemic index makes it an optimal sweetener for use in reduced-sugar recipes.
