Question Frutose vs. Sucrose

I heard fruit sugar is slightly better for you than regular sugar. Is this the case? Is there really a significant difference? What are the facts?

I am no expert but I would think that the reason natural sugar from fruit would be better for you when consumed thru eating the fruit is because of the fiber that you take in with it.Sugar is sugar and will still convert and go to storage if you do not burn it off.Fruit is good for you just do not eat too much of it.
