Hereditary Fructose Intolerance (HFI) is a rare genetic disorder – only few people are affected by HFI. Pharmaceutical Industries have no interest in investing into further research; therefore it is very difficult for people like me, to find the necessary information in order to live a healthy life. Often information is not sufficient or even wrong.
This is the reason I started a blog with recipes for HFI affected patients – hopefully a helping hand for a healthy and well balanced diet. Nowadays it is especially difficult to find foods without traces of sugars (fructose/sucrose).
My dietitian supported me in writing an introduction. I would also like to thank her profoundly for checking all the posted recipes. Here is her intro:
People with the hereditary metabolic disorder Fructose Intolerance (HFI), have a limited selection of different plant foods available to them. Especially the consumption of fruits and sugared foods leads to serious health issues for the hereditary fructose intolerant. Also the consumption of potatoes, whole grains, legumes nuts and many vegetables are only possible to a limited extent.
This collection of recipes shows ways of not having to completely give up upon valuable plan compounds and dietary fibers, thanks to a targeted selection of vegetables and grain products. The varied recipes ease the practical implementation of nutritional therapy in everyday life. They invite you to try and enjoy.

I hope, affected HFI patients as myself will support this idea of our mutual concern, by developing this recipe collection and by raising the awareness of HFI.
Together we can ensure, that we all have a realistic chance of having a diversified culinary experience, without having to worry about fatal liver damages.
Thank you in advance for your inputs and support.
These recipes have been checked by a dietitian yet any concerns, should be taken to a personal nutritionist, since no responsibility for the use of these recipes will be taken.
