FAQ's fructose-intolerance

Back

For sensitivity to fructose or fructose intolerance, we have the product fructase. This contains the enzyme Xylose Isomerase for the breakdown of fructose from food.

Our supplements can only help with the non-hereditary fructose intolerance, which is also named fructose malabsorption. This is a problem with the absorption of fructose, which causes gastro-intestinal complaints. When you have hereditary fructose-intolerance, you can absorb fructose, but then in the liver the fructose-1-phosphate will be accumulated. Those people need to avoid the intake of fructose completely, and our supplements can't help with this unfortunately.

People with fructose-intolerance (malabsorption), cannot absorb all the fructose from food through the intestinal wall. With a result the fructose will be transported from the small intestine to the large intestine. Here the intestinal bacteria will ferment the fructose and this causes gastrointestinal complaints such as diarrhoea, stomach ache, flatulence etc. The reason why they cannot absorb fructose from food can be a defect in the transport mechanisms which your body normally uses to absorb fructose through the intestinal wall.
