Fructose and Glucose Study
The study included 32 overweight or obese men and women whose average age was 50.
Over a 10-week period, the men and women drank either glucose- or fructose-sweetened beverages, totaling 25% of their daily calorie intake, either in an outpatient setting (eight weeks long) or highly controlled inpatient setting (two weeks long).
Both the groups gained weight during the trial, but imaging studies revealed that most of the added fat in the fructose group occurred in the belly, while most of the fat gained by the glucose group was subcutaneous (under the skin).
Belly fat, but not subcutaneous fat, has been linked to an increased risk for heart disease and diabetes.
The fructose group had higher total cholesterol and LDL "bad" cholesterol, plus greater insulin resistance, which are consistent with metabolic syndrome, while the glucose group did not.
The research appears in the latest issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
