Fructose Description from Now
Also known as "fruit sugar", Fructose is a simple sugar commonly found in honey, melons, berries, tree fruits, vegetables, and other natural sources. Crystalline fructose, produced from corn, should not be confused with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is a family of sweetener mixtures created with varying amounts of glucose and fructose.

Since Fructose doesn't recrystallize easily once it's incorporated into foods, it's ideal as a sugar substitute in recipes intended to yield soft, chew foods, such as cookies. Fructose is the sweetest of all nutritive sweeteners, ranging from 1.2 to 1.75 times sweeter than table sugar.
