    Fructose and sucrose free foods?

    Shop Now
    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.
