Honey is half fructose naturally. Sucrose, which is what honey is, is broken down by the body into half glucose and half fructose. Table sugar is also sucrose. Fruit juice from fruit that is actually allowed to ripen so that it is sweet is also sucrose. Starch is broken down into 100% glucose. Protein is broken down into 100% glucose when your body eats itself between meals.

This notion of fructose being harmful is from the high micro-fibers in the corn-syrup that penetrate the gut wall and make their way into the blood vessels, and clog the tiny tiny capillaries, forcing the body to make new capillaries. This can be avoided by eating some saturated fat each time you consume corn starch, or any starch for that matter.
