Add glucose to improve the absorption of fructose
As mentioned under Facts, 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 a 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.
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. A low fructose diet is an essential part of that process, but you can further support that process by adding psyllium husk fiber and probiotics, such as Align Probiotic Supplement, to your daily intake. I usually drink a glass of water with 2 capsules of psyllium husk and 1 capsule of probiotics 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.
Let’s share our knowledge
Maybe you have further tips and want to share them? Then leave a comment so that others can benefit from your knowledge. I appreciate that very much!
so it looks like all these “other brands” are just the same German guy that has a Patent on a glucose isomerase pill taken for fructose intolerance. You can buy 2.2lbs of glucose isomerase online in Asian countries for about $40 instead of paying $40 for a few pills. Add it straight to foods without overheating the foods and it solves the fructose problem. I must say that this “blog” and Twitter page looks authentic but is no doubt the German advertising his pills.
I’m sorry Gar, but that’s not true. I have nothing to do with that patent. I had to suffer from fructose malabsorption for years and after I found out what caused my symptoms, I decided to help others by creating this website. That’s it :-)
Thank you so much for your website. My daughter is very sensitive to fructose and I have noticed that psyllium works to improve her tolerance of fructose. Seeing that you were also helped by it encourages me to keep giving it to her.
