Frusano, a specialist in the marketing of food products for people with fructose intolerance, arrives at Alimentaria with an extensive catalogue adapted to this pathology, one of the most unknown and complicated to deal with, as it has no cure and no drug has yet been discovered.
Fructose is the natural sugar found in almost all fruits, vegetables and cereals, and also a component of sucrose, the household sugar. No natural food is fructose-free, so a fructose-free diet is virtually impossible. It is therefore crucial to ingest as little fructose as possible (the amount varies greatly depending on the food) and to find out one’s personal “tolerance threshold”. But being fructose intolerant does not mean giving up fructose.
Since its origins in 2006, Frusano, a specialist in this intolerance, sweetens all its products with maltose and glucose made from fructose-free glucose syrup and also produces alternative sweeteners. Its products include chocolate, jams, sweets, biscuits and snacks, sweetened beverages, pastries, sweets and jellies and sauces.
Almost all of the brand’s products are fructose-free (or contain very little fructose); besides, they are gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan. And, as many people affected by fructose malabsorption also have problems tolerating sorbitol, the company ensures that all its products contain as little as possible.
