The health consciousness of consumers has been increasing over the years, leading to a greater demand for sugar substitutes. Fructose, a natural sugar found in fruits, is one such substitute that is gaining popularity due to its low-calorie content and sweet taste. With increased awareness of consumers towards sugar substitutes, the use of fructose as a substitute has also increased significantly. Fructose can be used in many different ways as a substitute for sugar. It can be used to sweeten drinks, desserts, and even savory dishes like salads and soups.

This has led to a decline in cases of sugar consumption and an enlarged utilization of fructose as a substitute. Fructose is a natural sweetener that is found in fruits and vegetables, and it has been gaining popularity as an alternative to sugar due to its low glycemic index. It is also known to be healthier than other sweeteners such as high-fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners.

This trend is likely to continue in the future, as more people become conscious about their health and nutrition choices.


Fructose Market Segment Insights


Fructose Source Insights


The Fructose Market segmentation, based on Source, includes Sugarcane, Sugar Beet, Corn, and Others. The Corn segment held the majority share in 2021 with respect to the Fructose Market revenue. Corn is one of the major sources used in the preparation of high fructose corn syrup and is manufactured from corn starch which gets converted to glucose that is then partially hydrolyzed to fructose. The enzymes including isomerases and tetrameric metalloenzymes are used in industries for corn-based fructose manufacturing. The manufacturing of fructose from corn involves milling of starch, liquefication, filtration & decolorization, isomerization, filtering & refining, and evaporation. High fructose corn syrup has several health implications like diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, dyslipidemia, etc. which have been impacting the growth of the segment negatively.
