Dear Mimi
Simple sugars (monosaccharides= only one molecule of sugar) are glucose and fructose (or fruit sugar). Glucose does not often occur in the monosaccharide form, but is usually found in combination with fructose in sucrose (table sugar). Fructose occurs in fresh and dried fruit (between 1 and 7%), fruit juice, and honey (up to 40%).
Hope this helps
