Life saving website!

So finally I have found a credible website with a list of foods and their relative fructose/ glucose levels per 100g.

It’s fair to say that individual tolerances differ for each person and fructose to glucose ratio is only a guide of how well tolerated a food is…. But it’s a start!!’
food standards Australia

Give it a whirl and let me know if you discover anything interesting!

  1. I’ve been looking for a website that tells fructose levels of foods and was excited to see your post. I have been unable to figure out where to find this information on the website. Could you give me some direction? Thanks!

    • Pretty much once you click the link, top right hand side you can type into the search field any food you choose. I have been using it for fruits, Veges, while foods etc but I think there is some pre made stuff too depending on if your in Australasia. Enjoy xox let me know if you need any more info

  2. I have been using the Finish Food Composition Database http://www.fineli.fi/?lang=en it’s essentially the same, very useful. One thing that they have both made me wonder, is why cherries are listed as high in fructose on so many safe food lists (I know they have sorbitol but I’m counting that separately) but both these websites state that there is more glucose than fructose per 100g… any thoughts? I can eat cherries in small to moderate amounts, I’m currently re-testing all the sorbitol fruits, though, because when I was diagnosed 7 years ago FODMAPS wasn’t really a term and I only heard of polyols last year 😛
