The problem with fructose in agave syrup is not only weight gain, but also bloating and diarrhea, when excess of the syrup is taken, since a health person can absorb only about 25-40 grams of fructose by serving, and those (many) with fructose malabsorption can absorb less than 25 g of fructose. Honey, prunes and dried fruits in general, apples and pears are other foods high in fructose.

Interesting article, thanks. I have had a few friends and family members recommend agave nectar, but I haven't had the desire to try it. I prefer locally made honey, and use about 1-2 tsp a day in coffee or in plain greek yogurt.
I don't think I agree with the author's suggestion that agave is worse than HFCS, at least it isn't chemically engineered.
All I know for certain is that high fructose corn syrup is AWFUL. I easily dropped 5 lbs after eliminating just that from my diet in a month (same number of calories were being consumed, too!!). It is in soooo many things! After eliminating HFCS, all my food cravings for junk food stopped, too. Learning about HFCS is probably the best thing that has ever happened to me, my quality of life is a lot better now!

What beers are safer for someone with fructose malabsorption?I realize that it is possible that no beer will be fructose-free, but I've read that beers made with corn are higher in fructose. I'm looking for some with a lower fructose content.
