Is fructose the same as glucose, and do they contain gluten?

Is fructose the same as glucose, and do they contain gluten?

They are gluten-free: Fructose and glucose are two different types of sugars. Then do not contain gluten, unless they are accidentally contaminated with gluten during processing by the factory (unlikely) or during cooking (possibly could happen). Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley, malted barley, rye, spelt, etc... ...Read more

Gluten (Definition)

Wheat barley rye contains gluten, a protein molecule that in susceptible people can cause reactions and long term illness. There is celiac, the most well known and severe gluten disease. There is gluten sensitivity, affecting more people, but usually milder. There is wheat allergy, less common than the others. The treatment, for now, is to avoid all gluten in ...Read more

Explain d-glucose and d-fructose?

Explain d-glucose and d-fructose?

Slight differences: Glucose, fructose and galactose are all three dietary monosaccharides. The d (or dextro rotary) isomer of each is the one found naturally in nature. There chemical structures are similar, but slightly different. Both have 4 calories/gram ingested. There is disagreement on whether they exert different effects after ingestion. Both are "empty" calores with no nutrition. ...Read more

What is the difference between glucose, galactose and fructose?

What is the difference between glucose, galactose and fructose?

Simple sugars: Glucose, galactose, fructose, xylose, ribose are all monosaccharides that are different based on thei molecular structure and are the building blocks for more complex sugars or starches. Different foods or substances may have a different monosaccharide as their primary chemical. ...Read more

Is there an average age range for people becoming at risk of being lactose, fructose & gluten intolerant?

Is there an average age range for people becoming at risk of being lactose, fructose & gluten intolerant?

Older: As people age then tend to loose their ability to tolerate certain sugars, but there are no specific age frames during which it may or may not occur. ...Read more

If someone in class says they need sugar for medical reasons, why would that be, and is it a specific type like glucose versus fructose?

If someone in class says they need sugar for medical reasons, why would that be, and is it a specific type like glucose versus fructose?

Depends: Hi. A lot of people have self-diagnosed "hypoglycemia", which is total BS and has nothing to do with low blood glucose; some people just love to have a diagnosis when there's nothing wrong with them. True and pathological hypoglycemia occurs in people who are diabetic treated with insulin (and mildly and vanishingly rarely in type 2's on one class of pills). In true hypoglycemia, GIVE SUGAR. ...Read more

42 yo. Gluten intolerance/glucose intolerance. Why are my basal temps 96.8 and 97.0 and why am i so cold all of the time?What can I do to increase ?

Normal temps: Your intolerance to gluten/glucose are not responsible for your basal temperatures you should have your thyroid profile checked for possible hypoactive thyroid. ...Read more

Does your body process different sugars differently (eg. Glucose, fructose, sucrose, lactose, etc.)?

With minor: Differences, your body can easily metabolize any sugar. Glucose, fructose and galactose are all simple sugars or monosaccharides. Sucrose, maltose and lactose are all compound sugars or disaccharides. Sucrose is formed as a combination of a molecule of glucose and one of fructose, and they are broken apart by enzymes. All are equal to 4 calories / gram. ...Read more

Fructose (Definition)

Fructose, or fruit sugar, is a simple monosaccharide found in many plants (fruits, vegetables, sugar cane and honey). Fructose is absorbed directly into the bloodstream during digestion. Since 1970 high fructose corn syrup has been increasingly used in the food industry. Excess fructose consumption has been linked to Insulin resistance, obesity, metabolic ...Read more


Blood Sugar (Definition)

The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
