Add glucose to improve the absorption of fructose
As mentioned under Facts and Symptoms, glucose acts as a piggyback transport for fructose. This means that you can occasionally add glucose, such as dextrose, to high fructose foods. If you can’t resist anymore. But please keep in mind, that you consume a lot more sugar than is ideal that way. And this is for sure not healthy. So please do it only on occasion.
Consume fructose on full stomach, after meals
By doing that, fructose is released from the stomach slower and delivered to the small bowel over a longer period. This improves the absorption of fructose.
Make a pause of at least 2-3 hours between fructose-containing foods
This is important, as your body cannot handle large amounts of fructose properly at the same time.
How to reduce Fructose Malabsorption symptoms by restoring the intestinal flora
Intestinal rehabilitation for getting rid of abnormal bacterial colonization is a further step towards improved symptoms. The low fructose diet is an essential part of that process, but you can further support that process by adding special supplements (e.g. psyllium husk powder*) to your daily intake. I usually drink a glass of water with half a teaspoon of psyllium husks before breakfast. And this further reduced my symptoms of Fructose Malabsorption in the long-term.
However, intestinal rehabilitation programs should only be done after consulting a medical professional.
