Fructose FAQs

How do I substitute Fructose for table sugar in recipes?

Crystalline Fructose is a natural sweetener derived from corn that is approximately 50% sweeter than regular table sugar (sucrose). However, you will need to experiment a little in order to determine the exact amount of Fructose needed to substitute for table sugar in a recipe.

In general, if a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, a little over 2/3 of a cup of Fructose should be equivalent, but sweetening to taste will yield the best results. Fructose also provides the additional benefit of having fewer calories than table sugar to achieve a similar level of sweetness, because you can use less fructose.

Since a smaller volume of fructose than sugar would be needed in a recipe, you may have to increase the dry ingredients proportionally to compensate.
