I have read that different kinds of sugar effect the body differently. So are the claims true? What has your experience been like? Do smarties or tabs (dextrose) work any faster or slower than fructose (most soda and some juices)? To be fair the tabs would have to be taken with water so we are comparing two liquids rather than a solid and a liquid. So far I can only say that all fast sugars (not chocolate for example) appear to work equally fast. Hard candy needs to be chewed and beverages seem a little faster than solids. But I have not been very systematic about this and my experience may not be the same as yours. We have never tried honey or other syrups.
