Fructose and sucrose are often confused due to the numerous similarities. Fructose is a simple sugar naturally contained in fruit and vegetables. Our body requires more time to digest natural fructose because fruit and vegetables also contain fibre and other phytoproteins. The combination of fructose and glucose gives us sucrose, which is none other than common table sugar.
Sugar is obtained from the processing of both sugar beets and sugar cane.
Cane sugar is a sugar that is not totally refined and its typical golden color depends on the presence of small amounts of plant residue (molasses) that gives a less sweet and spicier taste.
When you eat sugar, however, it is important not to use too much. The World Health Organization recommends sugar intake that does not exceed 10% of your daily energy needs. (Source: www.sinu.it)
