FRUCTOPIA documents my life without fructose, yet full of clean, feel-good foods, featuring dishes free of sugar, wheat or processed goods. In other words, delicious everyday meals full of taste and energy for people with and without fructose malabsorption.

Do you use affiliate links?
I’d like to talk about money for a second. Some of the links on this blog are so-called affiliate links. You are most likely familiar with this already, but let me explain quickly for those of you who aren’t. If you happen to order some of the mentioned products through the provided links, Amazon or other affiliate partners will pay me 3-7% commission. Of course for you as a buyer the price of the product stays the same as for everyone else shopping at Amazon. I just wanted to be open about the links I provide on this space. Because in the end it should be your choice, who get’s a share of your currency spent.
