In industry they use the enzyme glucose
isomerase to convert glucose syrup into
fructose syrup. Fructose is sweeter than
glucose, so it is perceived to be useful in
processed foods for sweetening.
The body does not need to convert glucose
into fructose as the body uses glucose directly
for energy production.
What happens to fructose when we eat it? less
than 1% gets converted directly into
triglycerides. About 54% gets converted in the
liver into glucose. 25% gets converted into
lactate and 20% into glycogen. Glucose and
lactate are directly used as a fuel source by
body cells .
