So, what is fruktoza?

Fruktoza, also known as fructose, is a natural sugar found in many fruits, vegetables, and honey. Unlike glucose, which is the body's primary source of energy, fructose is metabolized mainly in the liver. Fruktoza is often used as a sweetener in processed foods and drinks, as it is about 1.5 times sweeter than sucrose. Due to its low glycemic index, fruktoza is often preferred by people with diabetes or those looking for a lower glycemic sweetener option. However, excessive consumption of fructose has been linked to various health problems such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

How to quickly find the source of ingredients like fruktoza?
