DEXTROSE

Dextrose

Elaine writes:
The problem with the dextrose and fructose which is being sold as a granulated form as well as the dextrose contained in commercial products is that it is not pure dextrose which should be the same as the single sugar glucose found in fruits and honey.

However, since it is made commercially from cornstarch, the product turns out to be a mixture of many sugars: short chain polysaccharides and trisaccharides and disaccharides. However, it is still being labeled as dextrose.

Furthermore, any sugar which is extracted is handled differently by the gut than the same sugar in whole food such as an apple.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
