  • Fructose and sucrose free foods?

    Apparently I'm as allergic to fructose as I am to lactose, that is, acne and bowel problems. And because I'd like to go medium carb (100g a day of sugar or so) I'd like to know if there's something in existence that contains relatively high amounts of glucose while being very low on fructose and sucrose.

    So, any idea?

      He didn't

      the co-ingestion of glucose greatly increases the efficiency of fructose absorption -- fructose is always coupled with glucose, unless you're ingesting pure liquid fructose.

      I bet you're reacting to fibers in unripe fruit. What are you eating?

        I was eating veggies and fruit and honey, lots of honey, and then acne kicked in, something that hasn't happened since I stopped eating dairy, and since (as far as I've read) people allergic to lactose might pose the same symptoms with fructose, chances are it was the fructose in honey.

        Now I think that I'll just switch to veggies and fruit, lots of fruit in particular bananas, grapes and other fruits with a 2:1 glucose/fructose ratio, unless I can find something better...

          There is no connection between not producing the lactase enzyme and having fructose malabsorption. Your acne probably comes from other problems. Eat some liver, and supplement vitamin e.

            Aren't you a teenager? When I was younger, I would get acne no matter what I ate. I don't think acne is an accurate measure of whether or not you're "allergic" to fructose/sucrose.

              You are definitely not allergic to fructose. A lot of people, including myself are allergic to honey.

                When I barely ate any sugars at all I didn't have acne, at all, zero.

                  Wait, how can you be allergic to honey but not fructose?

                    Because honey has other trace biochemicals in it because it's vomited up from bees.

                      Interesting... OK, I'll stick to bananas and grapes which have a good glucose-fructose proportion just in case

                        Eat a whole lot more of it. You aren't allergic, you have zero gut bacteria. Sugars are fermented by gut bacteria, so lactose intolerance and sugar problems are proof of a very, very unhealthy gut.

                        Start supplementing each meal with probiotics and start consuming yogurt and kefir or sauerkraut to help build your gut back up. Slowly reintroduce foods with soluble fiber, like sweet potatoes, white potatoes and bananas. It'll take months but you'll eventually get through it. A sure fire way to make sure you never get healthy is to avoid carbohydrate since that's what feeds your gut.

                        And as pointed out, drop the honey for awhile and see if it clears up. Try just white sugar - it has roughly the same fructose/glucose ratio. Why white sugar? Because it's pretty much allergen-free and it is for test purposes. If sugar gives you the same problems as honey, we can rule out a honey allergy.
                        Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                          1) I can't eat any kind of dairy, chances are it's not gut related but just plain lactose intolerance. Any other probiotics?

                          2) Tubers make me sick, but I'm immune to bananas and grapes, so if you tell me to eat six bananas a day that's fine.

                          3) White sugar? Well, for the sake of the test... but it is pure sucrose, and sucrose is possibly even worse than fructose, or only slightly better.

                            About 3) use xylitol. good prebiotic to go along with yoru probiotic. Green bananas everyday as well. You want to emphasize the prEbiotics while you eat prObiotics. Xylitol is just like sugar but with good properties. It is much more expensive though ... (like 15x more than sugar).

                              Pure sucrose sounds hilarious since sucrose is two monosaccharides bound together, in this case fructose and glucose.
