Fructose Malabsorption

Posted by CL @lelia, Dec 5, 2018

I'd like to start a discussion on fructose malabsorption, how to control it, what to eat and not eat, etc. . Is anybody interested?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Digestive Health group.

Not restricted from spices per se. Just no onions or garlic right now. I always check the FODMAP list or email my nutritionist if in doubt. I use salt, pepper, can use garlic infused olive oil but no garlic. I use cinnamon and vanilla extract. Nutritionist does not want me eating a lot of potatoes right now either. Take longer to digest. I am allowed to have a few spoonfuls of rice and a few bites of potato here and there. Just not regularly I have tried reintroducing lentils and can eat them in small amounts if properly cooked. I have no problem consuming meats, eggs, etc. Everybody is different.

@leila I am able to tolerate most spices accept for Cajun or things that are really hot. But I do very well with Italian seasoning which I put on my salm on steak, also turmeric, food ole salt & pepper, no garlic at all it immediately upsets my tummy. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help. I really never used a lot of spices in my cooking even before my diagnosis. I also use only evil or canola oil for cooking. Have a blessed day 😊

Everybody is different, that's for sure! Have you been tested for fructose malabsorption? If you have it, garlic anything wouldn't be good, nor would lentils.

Thanks for responding. I can't eat hot spices either – never could. Garlic is the worst if you have fructose malabsorption, except for possibly inulin (which isn't a spice or herb). The only olive oil without fruit juice in it (olives are a fruit) is extra virgin or extra light tasting. Getting this all sorted out is something else.

@i@lelia it really gets to be annoying at times but I am a woman of faith so I do pray a lot too. I will keep us all in prayer.

I have a doctor's appointment on the 28th and I plan to ask her to do all of those tests because I need answers. Thank you!

Fructose malapsorption, lactose intolerance and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth would be the best ones to start with, I think. Good luck.
