Fructose and Gout



READ your food labels and steer clear of processed/boxed foods as much as possible. Often time, high-fructose corn syrup is the top ingredient. AVOID!! Avoid substitute sugars such as aspartame, sucrolose/splenda, saccharin, Acesulfame-K. Each is full of undesirable side effects and cancer-causing agents. Do your homework, they are pure poison!! Should you feel the need to sweeten any of your fresh foods, consider a natural sweetener such as Stevia.

One should aim to stay under 25 Grams of total fructose per day. This can add up quickly with processed foods and juices! Avoid your simple carbs as much as possible -- bread, pastry, pasta = sugar. Any sugar you do consume each day should come only/mainly from fruit. See our fructose chart to gain some perspective on how quickly 25mg can add up with just fresh fruit alone:
