Thanks for taking your time. And: thanks at all,
your idea / book changed my life, very much to the
positive as far as I can say for now. :))

Yes, I forgot about sucrose breakdown. I read now,
that this happens quite instantly in the stomach
(due to the acidic conditions), so eating sucrose is
morely just like eating fructose and glucose in an
1:1 ratio.

Even if I do not take these numbers to serious, it
seems like the glucose/fructose ratio quite varies.
And for me its clear to understand and to feel, that
fruit and vegetables are what we are supposed to
eat, for me that has nothing to do with this
question. ;)

My question was rather: does this ratio of sugar
types have any known effect? Is fruit with more
fructose / more glucose better in any way or suited
better for certain purposes?

I read that
- Fructose is taken up passively, so takes no energy
to absorb but can therefore never be absorbed
completely. Glucose absorption is an active process.
- Fructose transforms to fat easier than glucose.
- Glucose makes you feel more saturated.
- There is more glucose in riper fruit.
- Glucose is easier an more versatile, making it
rather the "primary fuel".

I wonder if I could feel a difference in eating
types of fruit with the one or the other dominating.
I will surely give that a try ;)

Do you have any experiences / ideas to that? I mean
it's really not that important anyway, just being
