As I understand it, sucrose will trigger insulin production and will produce 
a feeling of satiation, both of which fructose isn't supposed to do.  The 
calorie count is about the same.  I didn't get into the difference because 
we've flogged that horse a time or two previously and cane juice and cane 
sugar are sucrose.
