Fructose Malabsorption Food Lists Search Engines/Apps

  • The Farting Pear: A web based search engine that provides ratings of foods for levels of fructose. This site provides a really helpful guide to what foods you can eat, based upon comments and ratings of other fructose sufferers. (Update: website has closed down)
  • Monash University (Melbourne Australia): the leading fructose malabsorption research occurs at Monash Uni and they have provided a table with the foods that are HIGH in FODMAPS and suggested alternative LOW fodmap foods. 


Fructose Academic Research

  • Clinical Ramifications of Malabsorption of Fructose and Other Short-chain Carbohydrates:
  • Sugar Profiles of Maple Syrup: This study took a look at the varying degrees of fructose/glucose ratio found in different brand varieties of Maple Syrup. The study suggests that the notion that the glucose/fructose ratio is close to equal may not be true for every grade of syrup.
  • The importance of methane breathe testing: Hydrogen breath testing is the well established test for assessing the malabsorption of sugars in the small intestines. However, a group of patients have shown to have all the fructose malabsorption symptoms, yet record a negative reading on the hydrogen test. To improve the diagnoses of fructose malabsorption, patients should be subjected to hydrogen and methane breath tests.
