steady percent of fructose that gets converted to fat. What gets converted to fat depends on the content of the meal and the state of the body that eats it.

Excess glucose can *also* be metabolized & stored in the liver, as can galactose. All sugars are to some degree metabolized in the liver, and the degree depends on the meal and the state of the body.

Fructose metabolism is *not* the same as alcohol metabolism.

Fructose can be converted to glycogen (storage form of sugar for quick energy release), fatty acids or amino acids (building blocks of protein).
