I am supposed to have a low fructose diet. What fruits and vegetables should I consider eliminating or using less frequently because of their high fructose content.

I do not understand how carbohydrates (bread and pasta) break down to sugar. Are these foods I should watch also? Sheila

Is there a specific reason for a low fructose diet? (other than it's generally a good idea)

Interesting site. However a little questionable, while searching I ran across vodka and it was given a low rating because it could be made from a variety of fructose-containing foods. It's distilled and fructose doesn't distill... *facepalm*

I assume you have fructose malabsorption or something like that? Anyways, the farting pear is a good reference. I think that website actually measure fructose and fructans, I don't know if they measure glucose. After all, foods higher in glucose than fructose should be okay.

Please do not eliminate fructose unless it really helps.

Bread and pasta aren't things you should watch they are things you should run from. Cutting out all grains and dairy will help your sugar levels. And I've found for myself I need to limit fruits. I only now have berries and only like twice a week. While you're healing I would steer clear of white and sweet potatoes as well as starchy veg like butternut squash.
