Fructose and sorbitol malabsorption

Ms Zanke, mother of Larissa, reports: “Basically over night my daughter contracted a fructose and sorbitol malabsorption. Suddenly there were so many things that I had to watch out for. No one else in our family suffers from allergies, which means I knew nothing about them and had no idea which products to use. I had a lot of reading up on the subject to do.

Eating at restaurants or at a friend’s house also proved problematic as Larissa found it hard to always talk about her fructose and sorbitol malabsorption. But things got much easier now that she’s got her DELICARDO – she doesn’t mind showing her Foodcard with the cute princess motif.”

Fructose and sorbitol malabsorption is not an allergic disease. Someone afflicted by fructose and sorbitol malabsorption cannot ingest fructose (fruit sugar) and/or sorbitol sufficiently quickly. Even though their bowel function is not abnormal, fructose and/or sorbitol reaches deeper bowel layers. [1]
Even domestic sugar (saccharose) contains fructose, as he is made up of glucose (grape sugar).
