Is the sugar in carrots, beets, taro, yams, and other sweet tubers mostly fructose or glucose?

any of the good online nutrition databases should give this info,

here's a couple of carrot examples from nutritiondata.com,

raw carrots (with serving size set at 100g), Total Carbohydrate 9.6g, Dietary Fiber 2.8g, Starch 1.4g, Sugars 4.7g: (Sucrose 3590mg, Glucose 590mg, Fructose 550mg)

raw baby carrots (with serving size set at 100g), Total Carbohydrate 8.2g, Dietary Fiber 2.9g, Starch 0.0g, Sugars 4.8g: (Sucrose 2720mg, Glucose 1040mg, Fructose 1000mg)

have fun
