something else you're not mentioning: sucrose (sugar as we ybderstand it) 
and fructose (corn sugar) are different chemicals.  Sucrose is a 12-carbon 
sugar; fructose, a 6-carbon sugar.  They have different sweetness levels, 
and, apparenty, different physiological digestivve properties.  Someone else 
with access to more current (and more accessible) textbooks than mine may be 
abve to provide further information.
