Omne Diem Fructose Digest which supplies Xylose Isomerase (XI). Avoiding fructose-laden foods and adhering to a low FODMAP1 diet can be difficult, inconvenient, limiting and less pleasurable. Therefore, Diem Fructose Digest is the best option for managing fructose malabsorption.*
XI is a natural bacterial enzyme that transforms fructose to glucose, which is easily absorbed
Take prior to the consumption of high-fructose foods and beverages
Active only in the GI tract and is not absorbed into the body, making it remarkably safe for daily use
Dietary Support for Fructose Malabsorption
Fructose is a sugar that occurs naturally in fruits, vegetables and honey. Fructose is widely used in packaged, processed foods and beverages. People with fructose malabsorption can absorb less than 25g of fructose per meal.
- Sugar soft drinks (20 oz) - 20-30 grams
- Large apple - 13 grams
- 20 grapes - 7 grams
- 1 tsp honey - 8 grams
- 1 banana - 5 grams
Different reactions in the body:
Allergy – An immune system response to a specific allergenic substance. Symptoms can appear quickly with very little exposure.
Malabsorption – An "allergy-like" reaction that does not involve an immunological response. Reactions can take time to appear and increase upon level of exposure.
When fructose breath test is positive, the following management options are available:
- Avoid/eliminate fructose from the diet
- Low FODMAP1 diet
- Digestive enzyme – Xylose Isomerase*
- Converts fructose sugars into glucose*
- Having glucose simultaneously with fructose in the gut improves overall sugar absorption*
50% of people in the US are affected by fructose malabsorption†
Absorption of fructose is impaired by deficient fructose carriers in the small intestine, resulting in an increased concentration of fructose in the entire intestine. Excess fructose can cause gastrointestinal reactions such as abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, diarrhea and more. People are becoming more aware of fructose malabsorption as healthcare practitioners are finding it to be involved in a variety of digestive concerns.
