fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

I agree with Dark Angel. Take a look at the FODMAP diet. I would not do the FODMAP diet on your own. It is very specific & it is recommended to have a knowledgable dietitian guiding you through the process. Let me know if you have any questions.

Corn and corn starch are OK in fructose malabsorption.

Foods to avoid in FM are those that contain more fructose than glucose.

Sucrose, for example, which contains equal parts of fructose and glucose, should not be a problem.

Here's a brief explanation of fructose malabsorption with a list of foods to avoid.


If, by any chance you have "fructose intolerance," which is a genetic disease and is much more severe, then you need to avoid any fructose from any source.

    Hi! I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. 😏 We are currently testing our 3 year old for celiac.  My main questions are about which tests were run and which are missing from the full celiac panel.  From what I understand, the full celiac ...
    Mistakes can set you back.  Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune response.  Once triggered, it can go off for days, weeks or months.  Like my family member who has MS.  She would have severe flares that would last for six weeks or mor...
    Apart from a couple of mistakes I’ve been gluten free for a month now.  I still have issues with digestion.  Pain in my abdomen (like there is a blockage ) if I eat a big meal.  Small meals are fine, and I still get excessive wind and nause...
