In making the fillings for our Apple Tarts and our Apricot Tarts we stew the fruit with dextrose monohydrate (commonly called glucose).  During the cooking process the excess fructose in the fruit bonds with the dextrose monohydrate, creating a sugar molecule (sucrose) which still tastes sweet but which will not provoke an allergic reaction in a person who suffers from a Fructose Malabsorption Allergy.  Hence the Apple Tart and the Apricot Tart are “Fructose Friendly™”.

Please note that we do not employ this technique in manufacturing the Apple & Plum Crumble Tart and this product is definitely not safe for consumption by people who suffer from Fructose Malabsorption Allergies.
