“Ose” by any other name
Q: I know high fructose corn syrup isn’t good for my family. But is plain fructose okay?
Dr. Wright: Unfortunately, the answer is no.
Basically, anything ending in “ose” on an ingredient label–including sucrose, fructose, and glucose (as well as their cousin, corn syrup)–has had its natural goodness removed, leaving a product that severely inhibits the immune system and compromises the body in many ways.
