This is a rare hereditary enzyme defect. Those affected can absorb fructose normally from the small intestine, but they cannot metabolize it in the liver. Fructaid is not intended for use in hereditary fructose intolerance.

Fructaid®

How does Fructaid work?2018-11-16T14:25:35+00:00

Fructaid contains the enzyme glucose isomerase. In the small intestine, it promotes the conversion of fructose into easily absorbable glucose (grape sugar).

How many capsules of Fructaid® should I take?2018-12-10T15:35:12+00:00

As the body’s capacity to take up fructose in the small intestine differs from one individual to another, we recommend 1 to 4 capsules of Fructaid® approximately 5 minutes before consuming food and drinks that contain fructose, depending on the individual’s needs. The number of Fructaid® capsules required also depends on other factors, such as the fructose content and amount and composition of the meal, snack or drink consumed. Because of these factors, one cannot specify exactly how much Fructaid® any one individual will need to promote healthy digestion of fructose. For those who are just beginning to use Fructaid® enzyme supplement, try starting with 2 capsules and adjust according to your individual needs and food choices.
