Definitions of Fructose intolerance:
An autosomal recessive fructose metabolism disorder due to deficient fructose-1-phosphate aldolase (EC 18.104.22.168) activity, resulting in accumulation of fructose-1-phosphate. The accumulated fructose-1-phosphate inhibits glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis, causing severe hypoglycemia following ingestion of fructose. Prolonged fructose ingestion in infants leads ultimately to hepatic failure and death. Patients develop a strong distaste for sweet food, and avoid a chronic course of the disease by remaining on a fructose- and sucrose-free diet.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners,
currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000.
