The Sugar and Diabetes Myth

Myth: Fructose substitution in a diabetic diet has no benefits in reducing blood glucose and insulin levels.

Truth: This is false.

A study found that fructose substitution instead of glucose or sucrose may lower blood glucose and insulin concentrations after a meal.

This study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, conducted a randomized controlled trial, which measured the blood glucose of diabetic individuals with glucose, sucrose, both (glucose + sucrose), and fructose to determine the effects of substitution. Fructose substitution has been associated with longer-term blood glucose control, alluding to a strong quality of life.
