General description

D-fructose is a crucial ketohexose, which is commonly present in free form in fruit juices, musk, and honey accompanied by glucose. It is a constituent of raffinose, sucrose, and inulin. Fructose is formed by the hydrolysis of inulin.

Application

D-(-)-Fructose has been used:
  • as a supplement in modified Sabouraud (mSAB)/Sabouraud broth to culture Zygosaccharomyces bailii and to prepare ketchup to avoid the presence of any chemical preservatives
  • to prepare hypoosmotic fructose solution to assess the functional integrity of sperm membranes
  • to supplement drinking water to mimic high-fructose corn syrup containing soft drinks
