Question:

From Georgia, USA:

I was reading the apple dumpling recipes, and I noticed that the recipes suggested fructose as a sugar substitute. However, my sister's doctor told us that fructose is worse than sugar, and someone with diabetes should never use it. Was he wrong?

Answer:

Fructose is a type of sweetener that comes from fruit, but certainly can be incorporated into a meal plan for anyone with diabetes. There's no reason that you should restrict fructose in your sister's meal plan, just count it as carbohydrate.
