List Notes: Data is the top 5 fruit drinks with the highest concentrations of fructose in grams per litre. Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) and fruit juice drinks that were either made with or without high fructose corn syrup were analyzed in separate, independent laboratories via three different methods to determine sugar profiles for this list. Excess fructose consumption is hypothesized to be associated with risk for metabolic disease. Unlike glucose, which serves as fuel for the body, fructose is processed almost entirely in the liver where it is converted to fat, which increases risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and liver disease. Total sugar may include: fructose, glucose, sucrose, maltose and lactose.
