Safe Food Products

It can be really hard and frustrating to find food products in grocery stores that are OK for someone who has Fructose Malabsorption.  Here is my list–to which I’ll keep adding–of items that have worked for me.

Annie’s Gluten Free Rice Pasta and Cheddar.  There’s a new white cheddar version with shells that is really good too.

Thai Kitchen Stir-Fry Rice Noodles.

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Cereal.  I think I would die without these.

Pretty much any brand of potato chips actually.  Just make sure to check the ingredients first!

Dr. Lucy’s Holiday Sugars.  I don’t think these are seasonal, since I found them in February.

Lundberg Organic California White Basmati Rice.  Low-levels of arsenic–woo hoo!

In case you eat a lot of spring rolls…

These are the best peanuts I’ve ever had.  They’re the Whole Foods brand.  I’ve been really surprised by how many peanut brands have intolerable ingredients in them!

I looooooove these!  And they’re baked so they’re healthy, right?

  1. I’m suprised you mention peanuts on your safe food list. 🙂 Peanuts are high in sorbit and therefore cause discomfort to “fructosemalabsorptionists”. Well at least to me they do. According to a German pharmacist’s homepage sorbit converts into fructose once you’ve eaten it. You do mention to avoid sorbit, though. Hope you feel better soon!

    • Hi, Lina!

      So far for me they’ve been OK if I eat just a 1/4 cup at a time. I haven’t seen anything that says that peanuts have any sorbitol in them though, and from my understanding sorbitol just inhibits fructose absorption and doesn’t turn into fructose.

      My safe list only indicates foods that are safe for me. FM is so weird you never know what you’re going to be able to tolerate (or more like not be able to tolerate)!

  2. I’ve read that foods high in lactose should be avoided also but I see you have milk in your recipes. Are you OK with milk?

    • I’m actually not OK with milk! But I didn’t know that because my lactose breath test came back negative when I took it (and the fructose one) about 5 years ago. But I cut it out about a year ago and since then I’ve felt so much better on many levels. A lot of my early recipes do use milk though. You can easily substitute an alternative milk, like goat, coconut, or almond.
