The website at www.alimmenta.com and Juana Margia Gonzalez, Technical Director of the Alimmenta Intolerance Department are pleased to announce the launch of their informational website and forum on the topic of — fructose intolerance (intolerancia a la fructosa). The forum is a location where anyone can ask questions about intolerance to fructose. The answers will be provided by a nutritionist from Alimmenta (http://www.alimmenta.com).
An increasing number of people around the world are experiencing adverse reactions to certain types of foods. The condition can be called food allergies or intolerances. For those individuals who are concerned about finding a diet for fructose intolerance (dieta intolerancia a la fructosa), the new website and the expertise of the nutritionist can be helpful in determining the best types of foods. There is a surprising number of foods which contain fructose and which must be avoided or managed for the comfort of the individual.
According to a spokesperson for the website, “Fructose is a simple sugar that can be found naturally in fruits and is mainly ingested in the form of sucrose. Sucrose, commonly known as table sugar, is a molecule composed of glucose and fructose which, when ingested, is separated in the intestine into its two molecules. Another possible source of fructose is sorbitol, a sweetener which is metabolized by the body to generate this sugar.
Understanding the symptoms of intolerance is an important first step in handling the symptoms. Some of the most common manifestations are gas, belching, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping. The symptoms vary in intensity from mild to severe.
The website provides information about the difference between hereditary intolerance to fructose and fructose malabsorption. In order to be useful, fructose must be absorbed and metabolized by the body. Intolerance to fructose occurs when there is a problem with the absorption. When the hereditary form of the condition occurs, the body is unable to metabolize fructose, because it is missing a specific enzyme.
