>>Recommendations promoting the use of fructose say its better because it has a lower Glycemic Index

This shows some of the fallacy of the GI, which has lots of problems with it. A study just done on vegans showed it didnt matter at all. And, another just done on whole grains, showed those with the highest whole grain consumption had the lowest risk for DB and also weighed the least. They also had the diets with the higest GIs. So, GI matters little in the context of a healthy diet. To show unhealthy foods are good cause of a low GI is misleading but popular amongst those who like eating those unhealthy foods.

The main issue with sweeteners, as I said in my talk, is that most Americans use way too much. And, think that is they are a "healthier" one, it is OK. This is not so.

So, if you do use them, just keep them to a bare minimum as I have recommended in some other posts, and then just choose the one you prefer and the one I recommend you avoid is fructose and high fructose corn syrup.. Then, at that reduced level, which one you use will matter little.
