Want to know how sugar and fruit juice effect the microbiome?
"Some sources of sugar are worse than others with respect to fostering the overgrowth of pathogens (1).  Those foods and beverages, or in the enteral area-formulas, contain much of their sugar in the form of fruit sugar or fructose.  Fruit juice, fruit juice concentrates, and high fructose-containing fruits are often the leading ingredient and foundations for enteral formulas."

One of the biggest misunderstandings in the field of nutrition is the role of fruit in a healthy diet.  We have been told to eat more fruits and vegetables for so long, that the two are referred to almost synonymously.  There is definitely a problem with this association.  Vegetables are rich in fiber, minerals, and typically very low in sugar.  Fruit, on the other hand, is typically much lower in micronutrients and fiber, yet much higher in sugar.  The most notable sugar in fruit is fructose.
