Abstract

The initial metabolism of fructose is thought to primarily take place in the liver. Using stable isotope labelling and tissue/arterio-venous sampling, Jang et al. demonstrate that in mice, the small intestine is the primary site of fructose metabolism, raising important questions about fructose handling in humans.
