Fructose is generally used as a sweetener and is derived from sugar cane, sugar beets, and maize. There is some evidence that excessive consumption of fructose may contribute to insulin resistance, obesity, elevated LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, leading to metabolic syndrome. Fructose is considered safe when used in moderation.
