Couldn't find anything online. Perhap the 0.05 difference is the reason.

When I get a chance I will let those that told me that their doctors
recommended that if they intake sugar that it should be cane and not beet or
corn syrup know that either they heard their doctors wrong (because all
sucrose is the same)or that their doctors may be quacks for suggesting such
a thing.

What is the basis for the doctor's opinions that cane sugar is better than
corn syrup or beet sugar?  I really do question the validity of this as cane
sugar and beet sugar are both sucrose and are metabolized the same way.
Corn syrup will metabolize faster that sucrose because the fructose and
glucose are already seperated.  You should get a faster, harder boost than
with sucrose.

Fructose, by the way, doesn't trigger insulin production, which is why
diabetics use it.  Which is also one of the possible explanations of
increased obesity with high fructose corn syrup.
