The drinks used in this study were reality-based -- "sweetened with" one or the other.....
....And there are so many foods sweetened with fructose. That is the point.
Well, the real point is.....no they're not!
Could you name a few foods that're sweetened with fructose (without doing a hunt and peck on Google, that is) That's fructose, BTW.....as in fructose and not HFCS, since they're two very different compounds.
As it happens, a few of the energy drinks manufacturers have flirted with using fructose as a sweetener in their beverages. However, in general,, these beverages that're used in studies have been specially formulated for the purposes of the study Rarely bear any sort of relationship to the stuff that folk can find on supermarket shelves and would never be mistaken for something desirable to drink by anyone with any gumption or choice in the matter whatsoever.
