Abstract
Dietary fructose is implicated in metabolic syndrome, but intervention studies are confounded by positive caloric balance, changes in adiposity, or artifactually high amounts. This study determined whether isocaloric substitution of starch for sugar would improve metabolic parameters in Latino (nā€‰=ā€‰27) and African-American (nā€‰=ā€‰16) children with obesity and metabolic syndrome.
