Aside from tooth decay and sligthly looser stools 100g of fructose eaten over the course of the day, preferably from fruit, as part of a eucaloric diet won't cause a healthy adult any serious health problems. Eating 100g of pure fructose in a single sitting on the other hand....... well, if you want to try it all I'll say is make sure you've got plenty of toilet paper in the house and the rest of the day free.
