1. This website is not intended to diagnose or treat you. If you have any questions regarding FM, I will happily answer them or refer you on; however, if you are having digestive issues then I do strongly recommend seeing a doctor/dietitian for proper assessment and advice. 
  2. This website is for dietary fructose malabsorption, NOT hereditary fructose intolerance – they are two very different things.
  3. Most recipes are gluten free, though a couple do contain spelt and rye. These will be labelled clearly as containing gluten - if you have coeliac disease, or another condition that prevents you from consuming gluten, please do not make/eat those.

While I will make every effort to verify the information on this site and ingredients in the recipes that I post, you must realise that everyone with fructose malabsorption is slightly different. There are lists of “favourable,” “potentially problematic” and “unfavourable” foods – most dietitians will instruct you to carefully test these after the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet and find your comfort zone, because your individual situation may differ from the text book. For example, I am able to eat small amounts of honey and well-cooked onions – unfavourable foods – yet I can’t eat even two grapes, which are considered favourable.

While our recipes will mostly be low in FODMAPS, they are specifically aimed at having favourable fructose ratios and fructan content, so lactose, polyols, galactose and GOS’s (to name a few) will occasionally an appearance in the older recipes, which I am slowly editing to be fully LFM. Please bear with me as I do this and, if you need a hand converting it to be fully LFM, just ask.
