wow, pinkybee, you couldn't be more wrong.
sucrose - which is ANY kind of sugar, is 1 fructose, 1 glucose molecule
The only sugar you can use for cooking is dextrose/glucose from either your health food store, or the brewery section of Big W or glucose syrup.
You are making a common error in that fructose malabsorption does not equal cannot eat anything with a fructose molecule in it. One of my good friends has fructose malabsorption. Fructose is actually poorly absorbed anyway, and the foods to avoid are not ones you would guess without actually talking to a dietitian. Basically, though, the main culprits include wheat in any form (same as coeliac), apples and pears from the fruit group, many green veggies from the veggie group (broccoli, cabbage, leek, spinach as well as onion and garlic) and honey or anything with high fructose corn syrup from the sweeteners. Proteins such as eggs and meat are fine. Normal table sugar is actually fine for those with fructose malabsorption.
My suggestion is to make a gluten free cake (e.g a flour less chocolate cake) or even easier, a nice pavlova or meringues (which I often make for my mate).
