Does consumption of fructose lead to increased blood pressure?

Robust scientific data has shown that consumption of fructose does not lead to an increase in blood pressure.

A systematic review by Ha et al. (2012) found that isocaloric intake of fructose did not lead to increased blood pressure, and that hypercaloric intake of fructose did not significantly affect mean arterial blood pressure. Likewise, a systematic review of large cohort studies by Forman et al. (2009) found no association between fructose intake and hypertension. A review by Rippe (2013) also concluded that the hypothesized association between fructose consumption and increased blood pressure is not supported by other meta-analyses or randomized controlled trials.
