All sugars ultimately convert to glucose in the bloodstream. Fruit sugars (fructose) do take a little longer than table sugar sucrose (which is a disaccharide of 2 glucoses) It is the speed with which a meal turns into blood glucose that spikes the blood sugar (with the associated rise of insulin to follow!)
My response was "Yawn" to an article that the OP had asked for an opinion regarding, not to the OP himself. I believe the OP, and indeed most posters, understood that point. Were I to post a link to an article, even one of my own, and someone replied "Yawn. Nothing new here.", I wouldn't assume the reply was ad hom.

This is a cycling forum. Note that if you are riding hard, you are burning carbs faster than they can be transfered into the blood stream= no sugar spikes.
