Other common sugars include glucose, dextrose, lactose, maltose, fructose. All are gluten-free.
Some people, including some people with celiac disease, are intolerant to lactose and/or fructose. Lactose intolerance is associated with celiac disease, because the enzyme needed to digest it--lactase--is produced in the villi.
Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000.

Thank you for the reply. Now to find the best one for me.
Also many people with celiac disease damage have 'leaky gut' syndrome. People with 'leaky gut' often get painful reactions from alcohol based sweetners, like sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, maltitol, etc.
Table sugar can come from sugar cane or sugar beets. Many people have cane sugar allergies, which can be diagnosed by ELISA (IgE, IgA and/or IgG mediated allergy) blood tests. Those with cane sugar allergies can often tolerate beet sugar and many other sweetners, including maple syrup, honey, agave and stevia.
Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

technically (for me)- Truvia and SMALL amounts of maple syrup are the only things that dont have ANY effect on me. but i cant quite get my coffee or tea sweet enough with just Truvia.. so, baby steps.
