Selective consumption of glucose and fructose among apiculate yeasts was evaluated. Results showed that Hanseniaspora guilliermondii and H. uvarum type strains were fructosophilic, unlike the other type strains. The difference in glucose and fructose use was confirmed in different media and throughout sugar consumption. Selective consumption of fructose is widely diffused among apiculate wine yeasts and could positively interfere with fermentation behaviour of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
