If you have fructose intolerance, you should avoid all foods that contain fructose. You can, however, eat some foods with the sugar glucose, which your body will be able to absorb. If you have fructose malabsorption, however, some fruits may be more "friendly" to your system than others. You may be able to eat small amounts of blueberries, pineapple, strawberries, and lemons, as these fruits are low in fructose. If your symptoms return after eating these foods, eliminate them from your diet.
