Diabetes and Fructose

Diabetes and Fructose

People who suffer from diabetes are often warned to stay away from all kinds of sugar, except for fructose. This is because fructose is an un-refined sugar found in fruits and honey, and is believed to be much better for you compared to refined sugars (sucrose) found in things like candy and soft drinks.

So I can eat as much fructose as I want to?

Not quite. Whilst fructose is recommended to diabetics due to its ability to raise blood sugar levels much more gradually instead of the sugar spike seen from foods with sucrose, too much of it can also spell disaster. Just because something says “fructose” on it doesn’t mean it is good for your health. A great instance of this is “high fructose corn syrup”. This stuff is loaded with fructose, but this means that it is at such a great concentration per amount you eat that at the end of the day it is just as bad, if not worse, than refined sugar.

The best is to stick to fructose in its natural form, which is fruit and honey.

Fructose intolerance

This is a condition where a person’s body does not properly digest fructose, and they end up having side effects like bloating, gas, and diarrhea. This is most common amongst people who suffer from diabetes, so it is important to keep an eye on all sugars you consume – fructose or not!

Slowdown the absorption of any sugar
