High Fructose Foods

So we talked about safe foods, but it’s probably good to also list the high fructose foods … the ones you want to avoid completely and not even take in small amounts … at least not until you are confident in your diet

  • Pears
  • Apples
  • Watermelon
  • Mango
  • Honey
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) also called glucose/fructose
  • Fructose
  • Onion*
  • Garlic*
  • Asparagus*
  • Wheat*
  • Brown rice*
  • Canned fruits sweetened with pear juice
  • Fruit juices


These are the foods you will pretty much always find on the various “To Avoid” lists.  The foods that have the most amount of fructose (in relation to glucose) or fructans.  There are more foods to avoid, and more foods can be divided by what’s usually safe and what’s often bad, but those foods are often very different from one individual to the next, whereas the above listed foods usually will cause problems and it is just best to stay away from them.
