Human brain is capable of producing fructose

Researchers Just Discovered That The Human Brain Is Capable Of Producing Fructose, And Here’s Why It’s A Big Deal

A study at Yale University has revealed that the human brain is capable of producing fructose -; and to do so, it uses a process known as the polyol pathway, a chemical reaction involved in diabetic complications. The study also shows that exposure to fructose can significantly alter the expression of hundreds of genes in the brain, including genes that control cell metabolism, cell communication, inflammation, and neuronal signaling, suggesting that it can alter brain function, too.
