What is Fructose Intolerance?

Fructose Intolerance is also known as Fructose Malabsorption.

It can develop at any age, but usually in adults and is a condition where the body cannot absorb large amounts of Fructose in the diet.

The Fructose that is not absorbed is left behind in the gut, and this provides a food source for bacteria. 

The bacteria eat the Fructose and create lots of gas and other substances causing bloating, pain and diarrhoea.

(This is not the same as a different illness - Hereditary Fructose Intolerance - also known as HFI.)

This is a simple outline of the condition - you can get more detailed information from your GP, Gastroenterologist and Dietitian.
