Hello -

A new BMC Gastroenterology study found a clinically significant association between fructose malabsorption and fructan malabsorption in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.

This was the first research to investigate the association between fructose malabsorption and fructan malabsorption in the same patients.

Analysis of IBS patients who underwent both fructose and fructan hydrogen breath testing found that patients with either a positive fructan or fructose test had higher odds of testing positive for the other carbohydrate as well.

Therefore, fructan malabsorption should be suspected in a patient with fructose malabsorption, and vice versa.

Fructose and fructans are found in different foods but are both FODMAPS.

You are not alone!
