ErinElizabeth, yeah that’s interesting what you say about milk. Galactose absorbs just dandy in most people on its own, so the cleaved glucose from lactose would assist in fructose absorption from fruit/honey.

However, I suspect many people who are fructose malabsorbers as a result of unhealth (few are genetic malabsorbers) will also be lactose intolerant, since the same hypothyroid, intestinal overgrowth, high stress situation that results in low fructose transporters (low glut5) will result in low lactase activity. In this case, the milk won’t help. But, hey, if it works for you stick with it!
