 Fructose 

Quick summary of the science  :

Fructose, or fruit sugar, is one of the three dietary monosaccharides, along with glucose and galactose, that are absorbed directly into blood during digestion. The human body, is also able to make fructose, under certain circumstances.  Thanks to it's chemistry, it is a little harder to process than glucose and this makes it potentially more damaging than glucose, when consumed in excess.
