Why not sucrose or fructose for liquid cultures?

What exactly does mycelium need to grow healthy?

Table sugar is cheap, I would assume there would be teks using it for liquid culture if possible. What about organic fructose? It should have some vitamin/mineral content, so maybe it would be better than regular sugar?

You can use just about any sugar. Some work better then others. The ones people use is what has been found to be tried and true methods.

Hmm.. I guess. It doesen't hurt to ask, though.. so thats why I'm asking. For all I know nobody has ever thought of it, as unlikely as that seems.

Why would karo perform well? In addition to light corn syrup, it also has high fructose corn syrup, salt and..... vanilla flavor added. That doesen't exactly sound optimal to me for some reason.  :lol:

I don't know why it performs well, I just know it does. People have tried sucrose, fructose, dextrose, table sugar, malt, shit water, grain water, potatoe water.

As long as its clear it seems to work as well as any other clear one and even non clear nutes can work fine, just harder to see what you got. Not much to optimize. Just get which one you find easiest thats cheapest and use that..its all basically the same..some may grow slightly faster then others..Karo is plenty fast enough for me though..
