Fructose intolerance

What about intolerance to sugar?

Sugar is a collective term for all sweet-tasting saccharides (single and double sugar) and also for the trade name of the double sucrose sugar.

Various sugars are produced from sugar cane or sugar beet. Sugar from sugar beet is obtained through a refining process. It is a pure isolated concentrate. Also, dextrose (grape sugar) is not obtained from grapes, but from starch from potato or corn. The industrially produced fruit sugar (fructose) is not made from fruit, but from corn! Both are chemically produced products.

Also maltose, lactose (milk sugar), maple syrup, apple and pear syrup, sucanat, primal sweetness, molasses, etc. belong to this group. Those are not chemically produced sugars but those are also isolated concentrations. At first glance they appear healthier than conventional sugar, as they still contain a residual stock of vitamins and minerals. But these are so minimal that they are not used by the body.

The ALCAT Test™ tests also for the hypersensitivity for many different types of sugar (such as fruit-, cane sugar, corn syrup, honey, etc.), so that not only the sugars are identified but also the response to so-called food groups, such as a response to Candida albicans.

With the ALCAT Test™ you can also test sugar alternatives such as stevia, xylitol, erythritol and aspartame (sweetener).

It should be noted that it is an illusion that it is possible to eat “sugar-free”. However, a low-sugar diet is perfectly feasible.
