Can my baby develop fructose intolerance from breast milk?
Infants are usually diagnosed with hereditary fructose intolerance when they are weaned from the breast. They do not develop fructose intolerance from breast milk. Breast milk contains lactose, a milk sugar, and is not affected by the enzyme (protein) related to fructose intolerance. Once babies are weaned and begin to consume fructose, the disease usually manifests itself.
