Might help, not cure: Fructose malabsorption may be caused by deficiency of glut5 (http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/glut5). I found a report of someone having relief taking the 1st 2 supps you mention (http://glutenfreesoyfree.Wordpress.Com/2012/03/05/potential-cure-for-fructose-malabsorption/) they said these heal cells that produce glut5. There's no research on this but it seems possible. However, on stopping it recurred.
