Also known as "fruit sugar", Fructose is a simple sugar commonly found in honey, melons, berries, tree fruits, vegetables, and other natural sources. Crystalline fructose, produced from corn, should not be confused with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is a family of sweetener mixtures created with varying amounts of glucose and fructose.
NOW Real Food Crystalline Fructose is a 100% pure form of this natural sugar that's ideal for a variety of cooking applications. Since Fructose doesn't recrystallize easily once it's incorporated into foods, it's ideal as a sugar substitute in recipes intended to yield soft, chewy foods, such as cookies. Fructose is the sweetest of all nutritive sweeteners, ranging from 1.2 to 1.75 times sweeter than table sugar.
Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We're independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.

I have been using fructose for a long time now. It has the same strength as regular table sugar, but gives no sugar rush, keeps the glycemic index low. I use it 1 for 1 no need to alter any recipe.
I can't even begin to say what finding the fructose has meant to me. I am chemically diabetic and absolutely must stay away from sugar. I'd been using Splenda, but was concerned about what it might be doing to me, then found this. The package is a good size and lasts quite a while (unless one is doing a lot of baking or jelly making!) Will definitely be buying this again!

Use it instead of sugar, it's much more healthier.

This is a low glycemic fructose and can be used in cooking or sweetening beverages. Being a low glycemic "sugar", it does not require as much of this fructose. I wouldn't be without it!
some bags are missing or burst

Maybe we have ordered over one year of this product. We order 40 bags of this product everytime, but sometimes some bags are missing leaving 38 or 39 bags, also the bags might have been burst and the contents are all over the place. We already complained a couple of times but it's still the same. We didn't change the company but now we're starting to consider it.

Good product, great price. I used this to replace all processed/refined sugars, and my husband couldn't taste the difference.

This is considerably less expensive than ones that I have purchased in the past (not through iherb) The quality is as good, but I now only use half the quantity ie 1teasp instead of 2teasp. So I make savings all round. I'm really happy with the service, with my packages being delivered on time. Thank you Iherb!
