Fructose Tolerance Test

What is Fructose Intolerance?

Foods that we eat are made up of a variety of components, including proteins, sugars and fibres.  In our foods, there are often some certain “sugars” and “non-digestible” component’s (some carbohydrates), which can be absorbed very differently in some individuals, and in some cases, ‘mal-absorbed’.

Fructose is a sugar found naturally in honey, wheat, fruits and some vegetables. Fructose is ever increasing in our diet as an added ‘sweetening’ ingredient to packaged foods often described as ‘fruit concentrate’.
