Cookies on fructose with diabetes mellitus

Ludmila Kaskova, Chief Technologist at Pudoff Group, answers:

Sugar can be replaced by fructose in all types of pastries and desserts. Since fructose is sweeter than sugar 1.7 times, it should be used in smaller quantities. The quality of desserts such a replacement will not affect. You just had no luck with gelatin. In yogurt jelly with juicy fruits (for example, strawberries or kiwi), there is a slight “wetting” around the fruit pieces, but this does not depend on whether you used sugar or fructose.

In breadmaking, you can also replace sugar with fructose, only by counting the amount. Yeast with pleasure "eat" both sweets. There will be no difference in baking. But bread can be baked without sugar, we wrote about it.

On photo “S.Pudov. Wheat-rye bread on fructose ".

Somewhat differently, fructose behaves in yeast-free pastries - in muffins and cookies.

If fructose is added to the dough instead of sugar, then the muffins are always obtained less in volume than muffins on sugar. In addition, fructose muffins blush faster, it is likely that the product can burn inside and not bake inside. It is easy to correct - the baking temperature of fructose on muffins should be reduced by 10-20 ° C, and the baking time should be increased.

Fructose biscuit is not as sweet as sugar. This is due to the fact that some of the fructose actively participates in the Maillard reaction (when the smell, color and taste of cooked food arise in the process of heating the product). Like fruit cakes, fructose cookies need a lower baking temperature. There are also differences in appearance: the cookies on fructose are softer, and the cookies on sugar are more crumbly. And since fructose has a pronounced hygroscopicity, the cookie will be soft for a very long time.

I baked a cupcake and biscuits for two simple recipes with the replacement of sugar by fructose. I would be glad if they are useful to you.

Fructose Nut Cake

Butter - 100 g

Crushed Nuts - 100 g

Sour cream - 230-250 g

Chicken eggs - 3 pcs.

Vanillin - 1 g (at the tip of the knife)

1. Melt the softened butter with fructose and, adding one egg each, beat the mixture until smooth.

2. Add sour cream. Mix.

3. Add flour, vanilla, nuts, mix.

4. Put in a greased form.

5. Bake in a preheated oven at 150-160 ° C for 1 hour - 1 hour and 10 minutes. Baking time directly depends on and may vary depending on the form used (its size or material), as well as on the design features of the oven.

“Is it always possible to replace fructose with regular sugar in bread, baking and desserts? What principles to follow when replacing? From my experience: the second time, the yogurt dessert with fruit is not completely frozen. For the last time, there were two “risk factors”: sour strawberries and the replacement of sugar by fructose. Since yoghurt jelly "spread out" around strawberry slices, I sin on it, but maybe fructose also affected the texture? "

Low-carb diet for diabetics

For the treatment of joints, our readers successfully use DiabeNot. Seeing the popularity of this tool, we decided to offer it to your attention.

The complex of measures for the treatment of diabetes mellitus (DM), both the first and second type, includes a low carbohydrate diet. That it gives a guaranteed result, regardless of any conditions and the initial state of the patient. In the case of an insulin-independent form of the disease, especially at the stage of prediabetes, a complete cure is possible, in particular, due to the diet. And for patients with type 1 diabetes, it can significantly reduce the dose of insulin.

Rules for diabetes

A low-carb diet will help normalize blood sugar levels if you adhere to the following rules:

  • Minimization of simple sugars from food. Therefore, refined sugar, juices and beverages of industrial production, confectionery, pastries, and sweet fruits are banned. Xylitol, sorbitol and other sugar substitutes are allowed in an amount of not more than 30 g per day.
  • Bread is preferably consumed rye, whole grain, with bran - no more than 100 grams per day.
  • From vegetables, you can eat green, leafy and others with a glycemic index of less than 50. But the beets, carrots, apples and savory fruits are already under control - no more than 300 grams per day.
  • The base of the diet should be lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs (2 pcs. Per day).
  • Milk and dairy products are allowed in the total volume of up to 500 g. It is clear that the amount of each particular one depends on the fat content - you must be moderate with cream or hard cheese.
  • It is important to reduce the amount of salt consumed to a minimum.
  • It is imperative to ensure the intake of micronutrients with food or dietary supplements, of which vitamins A, C and groups B are particularly important. The following article describes all the vitamins for diabetics.


The daily rate of calories for women is 1300 Kcal, and for men - 1700 Kcal. This indicator can be increased in the case of sports: for women - up to 1500 Kcal, for men - 1900 Kcal. Usually, when diabetes is recommended five meals with the following distribution of daily calories:

  • breakfast - 25%,
  • lunch and snack - 10% each
  • lunch - 35%,
  • dinner - 20%.

The structure of each meal (the ratio of proteins, fats, carbohydrates) is kept constant, so as not to cause jumps in blood sugar levels.

A low-carb diet doesn’t mean a half-starved life. The amount of food should be such that there is a feeling of satiety. When preparing it, preference is given to boiling, baking, stewing, cooking very well vegetable and protein steamed dishes. It is advisable to cook without fat and add them in moderation in ready-made dishes. A significant proportion of the diet should be raw plant foods.

What is diet number 9?

If diabetes is not burdened with concomitant diseases, and the patient's body weight does not exceed the norm, or at least close to it, the therapeutic diet No. 9 is usually prescribed. The purpose of this diet: the normalization of carbohydrate metabolism, the prevention of violations of fat metabolism. The diet of diet number 9 is similar to the well-known Kremlin diet. The energy value is incorporated with a small deficit due to the exclusion of simple carbohydrates and animal fats.

Diet number 9 has the following rules:

  • Completely excludes sugar and sweets.
  • Limits the use of salt and cholesterol.
  • Contains an increased amount of lipotropic components, trace elements, dietary fiber.
  • Satisfies the body's need for carbohydrates due to complex sugars, which, in combination with an increased amount of fiber, are slowly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, providing a stable level of sugar in the blood without jumps characteristic of simple carbohydrates.
  • Limits alcohol intake to 10 grams of alcohol per day (this is literally a sip of vodka or brandy, a glass of wine or 0.5 liters of beer). Exceeding the specified number is fraught with the development of hypoglycemia (a sharp drop in the level of glucose in the blood, which can cause loss of consciousness or coma). For the same reason, you can drink alcohol only with food.It is also important to remember that the combination of alcohol with some hypoglycemic drugs can cause nausea and vomiting. Read more about alcohol in diabetes - read here.


In the fight against diabetes, fat metabolism is also important - its violation is often the cause of the development of insulin resistance of body tissues and, accordingly, the cause of development of type 2 diabetes.

The doctor prescribes a diet for a patient with diabetes. The diet is calculated individually, taking into account body weight, age, severity of the disease, the presence of associated diseases and other factors.

Menu for a week of medical diet for type 1 diabetes

When building a diet menu for a patient with type 1 diabetes, it is no longer necessary to clearly regulate the amount of carbohydrates, taking into account the standard dose of insulin - modern drugs allow, on the contrary, to select the dose of the hormone for a particular meal. That is, if you wish, you can eat something sweet by increasing the size of the injection, or even do without it, having planned a virtually carbohydrate food intake.

Type 1 diabetes usually develops for various reasons in young people or children whose weight is normal or even insufficient. Therefore, the diet is aimed at optimizing carbohydrate metabolism without the purpose of losing weight. The following weekly diet is designed for calorie 1300-1500 Kcal per day. It will suit a child or teenager.

For an adult who is not overweight, the portions can be increased so that the caloric content is 2000-2500 Kcal or more (depending on gender, age, physical activity).

Those diabetics who do not have excess weight, can afford in limited quantities almost any sweets on fructose or sorbitol, which are sold in special departments of any supermarket. But obese diabetics do not have such an opportunity, because the products on fructose, sorbitol and xylitol are even more calories than normal ones. The solution could be the use of calorie-free sugar substitutes. For example, stevia is suitable - a natural sweetener from plant materials.

Medical Diet for Type 2 Diabetes - Weekly Menu

A feature of type 2 diabetes is that insulin is produced by the body in greater quantities than in a healthy person, but it is not absorbed by the tissues. Insulin resistance of tissues is usually associated with overweight patients. Therefore, one of the important tasks of a low-carb diet is weight loss. The more effectively this task will be solved, the greater the likelihood that it will be possible to restore the sensitivity of tissues to insulin - then the blood sugar level will be normalized without hypoglycemic drugs and insulin therapy.


The following is an example of a weekly diet for a patient with type 2 diabetes.As can be seen from the table, fractional six-meals a day based on protein foods and vegetables is recommended for such patients. Depending on the individual testimony, the amount of fruit in this diet can be reduced by introducing additional vegetables or fermented milk products to reduce carbohydrates in the diet.

Features of fructose in diabetes

Fructose is often called fruit sugar. Unlike glucose, this substance can penetrate the cells of tissues from the blood vessels without insulin exposure. Therefore, it is recommended as a safe source of carbohydrates in diabetes.

Fructose is a natural substance that is found in most fruits and vegetables. This substitute of refined sugar today is widely used in cooking when cooking all kinds of sweets and desserts. It is added to the recipes of various products.

Baking with fructose has a brownish tinge and a sweetish smell. Meanwhile, it is important to be prepared for the fact that biscuits prepared with the addition of fructose will not be as tasty as when using ordinary sugar. It is thanks to the special qualities of sugar baking turns out more lush and airy.

Fructose, on the other hand, does not possess such features, since under its influence yeast bacteria multiply much more slowly.

Also, when applying recipes with fructose, it is important to remember that it is twice as sweet as regular sugar. Fructose is susceptible to the rapid passage of the metabolic process, and therefore may cause fat deposition. Because of this, a sugar substitute is not recommended to be consumed in large quantities with diabetes mellitus, and especially with obesity or increased weight.

  • Fructose does not contribute to the increase in blood sugar.
  • Insulin is not required for the full absorption of fructose.
  • Thanks to this substance, diabetics can eat baked goods, sweets and other products that are usually not recommended for diabetes.

The main and important condition for the use of fructose is to comply with the daily dosage. On the day you can eat no more than 30 grams of this substance. If the dose is not followed, the liver can convert the excess fructose into glucose.

Fruity Pastry Recipes

There are numerous recipes with which you can do with your own hands healthy and tasty pastries using fructose instead of regular sugar.

The main thing is to pay for the glycemic index and calorie content of the products so that the cookie does not become the reason for the increase in blood glucose.

Is fructose useful as a glucose substitute?

In order to lead a full, quality life in diabetes, you need to know as much as possible about this disease, listen to the advice of your doctor. There is a lot of information about diabetes of any type now, the disease has been studied sufficiently, the effect of glucose on the body when it is consumed is known, but how does fructose behave in the body of a diabetic?

Glucose replacement

However, it is not enough just to monitor the level of sugar metabolism, it is still necessary to reduce its consumption, to take glucose-lowering drugs. Glucose is necessary for maintaining the energy balance of a person, ensuring his cellular and tissue nutrition, and vital activity. Do not eat carbohydrates is impossible, but glucose is not the only way to replenish energy reserves.

Biochemical science has studied quite well the class of carbohydrates that are necessary and possible for human consumption for their own purposes. These include glucose, maltose and others.Today's conversation is devoted precisely to the positive and negative aspects of the use of such a carbohydrate as fructose in the diet of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Healthy carbohydrate

First, the benefits of this monosaccharide. Fructose is a polyatomic monosaccharide. Its structure practically converges with glucose, but only the composition of the atoms, the construction of the molecular species is different. This explains the differences in the processes of utilization and assimilation, according to which these monosaccharides differ.

Fructose is found in large quantities in natural products, especially honey. By name it is clear that its content in fruits is high. For the first time, fructose was isolated from berries and honey.

Since then, scientists began to think about how to use it for therapeutic purposes. Humanity has long struggled with the problem of excess weight, the natural monosaccharide should help in this important matter. Indeed, the body's absorption is much faster than glucose.

Shows positive qualities in the following positions:

  • assimilation is much faster than glucose,
  • insulin for recycling is not necessary
  • The energy effect is the same as glucose, but may be higher.

When the results of the research became known, the idea immediately arose of using fructose as a sweetener for diabetes mellitus. And both types of the disease fall into this list.

In diabetes of the first type - the lack of insulin is hereditary or provoked, it is necessary to fill it from the outside. The quality that fructose does not need much for the uptake of cells, and energy gives no less, no doubt, allows you to use it in type 1 diabetes as a sweetener.

With the second type of disease, blood insulin is sufficient, however, the cells of the body are insensitive to insulin, it is necessary to reduce the level of glucose with the help of drugs. Fructose penetrates the cell with a small amount of insulin, energy reserves are replenished. Moreover, it requires much less than glucose.

Eating fructose prevents caries, heals the oral flora, thereby protecting the teeth from diseases. Quickly compensates for the shortage of carbohydrates, which can be used in the relief of acute shock conditions.

There are several negative aspects that do not allow the use of fructose in diabetes mellitus unconditionally or without restrictions.

Negative qualities

When buying fructose in a store, almost everyone thinks that they purchased natural fruit sugar, which is found in natural fruits. This is not true. Indeed, fruits contain this monosaccharide, but in very small quantities. Mainly in fiber. That is, to get enough energy supply of fructose, you need to eat a huge amount of fruit. But this is impossible simply for physiological reasons.

What is sold in stores, added to juices and concentrates in the food industry? This is synthetic fructose. It consists of fructose and glucose, a ratio of 55 to 45 percent, respectively. Due to its very rapid splitting, this substitute contributes to the rapid replenishment of energy reserves, to satisfy hunger. However, such a rapid emergence of the deficit again. After a short time, the person will feel a lack of vitality, the desire to eat something sweet.

I must say that it increases the appetite. I just want sweet dishes and drinks. This is especially dangerous when using store juices, which are sweetened with fructose. Therefore, buying a similar drink, you should think carefully about whether to buy it and put your body at risk.

Fructose in the diet is still a dangerous trend. Increases the rate of formation of fat cells, the deposition of fatty tissue in the liver. This is a very dangerous feature that can lead to fatty degeneration of the liver, the loss of its functions necessary for the body.

It also increases the content of dangerous blood triglycerides, which contributes to the risk of atherosclerosis. With diabetes of any type, atherosclerosis is the number one danger, fructose consumed increases the risk of this disease.

Do not use artificial fructose as a complete sugar substitute. Psychologically, a person gets used to the same amount of product used. Replacing usual sugar with fructose, one should not forget that the quantity of this product should be several times less than sugar. Sweetness is achieved by three to four orders of magnitude smaller than white sugar.

And also carbonated drinks, juices, cookies on fructose should not be used by children. These foods can form a strong dependence on sweets, which over time will inevitably lead to obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Recommendations on the use of fructose

It must be remembered that fructose is added to drinks, dishes cost less than usual sugar about five times.

Control the amount of sweets eaten, which contain fructose as a glucose substitute. They should be in the diet the minimum amount. This is especially true of carbonated, sugary drinks. One liter of such lemonade contains about ten spoons of sugar. It is necessary to refuse such drinks.

To get the maximum benefit from fructose, it is better to add natural fruits, for example, to cottage cheese, fermented milk drinks.

Glycemic Index of Ingredients for Cookies

The glycemic index of foods is a digital indicator of the effect of a food product on the increase in blood glucose levels after it has been consumed. Diabetics should make a diet of food with GI to 50 U.

There are also such products in which GI is zero, all this is explained by the absence of carbohydrates in them. But this fact does not mean that such food may be present on the table of the patient. For example, the glycemic indicator of fat is zero, but it has a high caloric content and contains a lot of cholesterol.

So besides GI, when choosing food, you should pay attention to the caloric content of food. The glycemic index is divided into several categories:

  • up to 50 IU - products for daily use,
  • 50 - 70 U - food can sometimes be present in the diet,
  • from 70 units and above - such food is strictly prohibited, as it will become a risk factor for the occurrence of hyperglycemia.

In addition to the competent choice of food, the patient must follow the rules of its preparation. In diabetes, all recipes should be prepared only in the following ways:

  1. for a couple
  2. boil,
  3. in the oven,
  4. in the microwave,
  5. Grilled,
  6. in the slow cooker, except the “fry” mode,
  7. Stew on the stove with the addition of a small amount of vegetable oil.

Observing the above rules, you can easily make your own diabetic diet.

Banana oatmeal cookies are often prepared, but such recipes are banned for type 2 diabetics. The fact is that GI of bananas is 65 U, which can provoke a rise in blood sugar.

For a normal healthy existence, a person should eat enough vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbohydrates. That carbohydrates are the most important components for the metabolic processes of the body.

The sweetest carbohydrate is fructose (fruit sugar). It is present in its free form in almost all fruits, honey and some vegetables (corn, potatoes, etc.). On an industrial scale, fructose is extracted from raw materials of plant origin.

What is fructose

There are several types of carbohydrate compounds, of which the most easily digestible are monosaccharides. They, in turn, are artificially synthesized (sucrose and regular sugar) and of natural origin (fructose, maltose, glucose).

Fructose is a white crystalline powder that dissolves in water overnight. It is 2 times sweeter than glucose. Monosaccharide, entering the body, quickly split and absorbed. This substance has one characteristic feature - only liver cells can use it.

Fructose is almost completely absorbed by the liver cells, and is also converted and stored there as glycogen.

The advantages and disadvantages of fruit sugar

The main advantage of this product is that it does not contribute to a sharp increase in blood sugar levels.Compared to other carbohydrates, this is considered less calorie. Another advantage of fructose - it has a tonic effect.

Add an additional few advantages to the treasury of benefits - the substance does not cause tooth decay and contributes to the speedy breakdown of alcohol in the blood. This monosaccharide contains no preservatives.

As for the shortcomings, there are not so many of them. Some people suffer from individual intolerance to fructose. Because of this, they can not eat sweet fruit.

Since the product has the peculiarity of creating an uncontrolled feeling of hunger, it can be the cause of gaining excess weight.

With prolonged use of fructose, the body disrupts the production of certain hormones that regulate the energy balance in the body.

Monosaccharide in high doses can provoke cardiovascular diseases.

The benefits and harm of sweets on fructose

Consider this question in two aspects. On the one hand, natural sweetener does not cause a significant rise in blood sugar levels, since it has a low glycemic index. It also does not have a destructive effect on tooth enamel. Fructose has a rich sweet taste, so it needs a lot less sugar.

Now consider the monosaccharide from the other side. It has one unpleasant effect - it can almost instantly transform into body fat, thanks to the peculiarities of fructose absorption by the liver. From this we can draw the following conclusion: sweets on fructose, no matter what, can ruin the shape. Since fructose does not undergo the process of splitting and gets into the cells directly, there is a high probability that you can recover from it faster than from ordinary sugar - sand.

Those who are on a sugar-free diet should minimize the ingestion of a nutritional supplement in the body.

The advantage of sweets on fructose - they have a low cost. Of all the sugar substitutes, fructose is the cheapest. But it is worth once again to think before you “put your figure in jeopardy”, even for a small amount of money.

Most of the population does not have all reliable information about fructose, and unscrupulous producers use and sell these sweets, which are based on this monosaccharide. Consumer buying these products, hopes to lose weight, or at least maintain their weight. In most cases, this can not be done, rather the consequences are reversed - the weight continues to increase.

If you use crystalline fructose in unlimited quantities, that is, more than 40 grams per day, you can harm your health. In addition, it will lead to an increase in body weight, premature aging, the development of cardiovascular diseases, and allergic reactions. Therefore, artificial monosaccharide should be consumed in limited quantities. It is better to include in your daily diet natural fruits, vegetables and berries.

The benefits and harms of fructose are discussed in the video in this article.

A product is prepared from flour produced from oats, an unpretentious cereal that grows everywhere. The authors of this product were preparing cookies on hot stones. At first, grain was converted into flour by means of auxiliary methods, which was diluted with ordinary water. From the dough obtained in such a simple way, small pellets were rolled out and laid out on the hot surface of the stone. The new dish was really liked by fellow inventors of the product, and soon it appeared on the table of the royal persons.

When World War I broke out, oatmeal cookies included many European armies in the dry ration. Its excellent taste and satiety helped the soldiers to bear the burden of military life. Therefore, it is not by chance that at one time this product was called “soldier's cookie”

As you know, diabetes is allowed to eat many foods, except those containing fast-digesting carbohydrates. Meanwhile, these substances contain baking, which is usually not recommended for diabetics in large quantities.

The fact is that fast carbohydrates are instantly absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and enter the blood vessels. This in turn can lead to the development of hyperglycemia and the formation of complications. To avoid this, these dishes should be used with caution.

Many diabetics find it difficult to give up sweets. In this case, specially prepared pastries based on fructose help. So, cookies on fructose today can be found in many stores. Such products are designed specifically for diabetics and those who intend to lose weight.

However, not every baking can be suitable for diabetics. For this reason, before you buy fructose-based cookies, you need to carefully examine the composition of the product, pay attention to the caloric content and glycemic index.

As a rule, pastries for diabetics are made from sweetener and skimmed milk. To be sure of the composition of the cookies, it is recommended to learn how to cook them yourself. For this there are fairly simple recipes that take into account the characteristics of the disease.
