Particularly surprising was that the sugar we most commonly consume, sucrose, boosted fat synthesis slightly more than the same amount of fructose.

It would be interesting to see what half as much fructose, instead of just as much sucrose, would do. It's possible that the short-term capacity for increasing fat production in response to a fructose dose was just already saturated with half as much fructose. There's an old study on sugar overconsumption--I think by Flatt and Acheson?--where with massive overconsumption of carbohydrate, it took several days for fat production to hit a much higher point than at the beginning.
