Abstract: Global changes in dietary habits in the last decades caused an increase of added sugar consumption all over the world, which has been linked to the increasing prevalence of obesity, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease. Fructose is widely used as a sweetener in the food and beverage industry, either as an integrant of the sucrose molecule or as a component of high fructose corn syrups. The consumption of fructose in beverages is especially dangerous, as the process of energy compensation by reduction in the ingestion of other foods does not work equally well with liquid than solid foods. Besides, fructose is the carbohydrate with the highest ability to induce hypertriglyceridemia, due to a marked increase in lipogenesis compared with glucose. In this review we will discuss some of the most recent studies performed in animal models and in humans to investigate the effects of excessive fructose consumption.
