Where can I find nutritional information about sucrose and maltose in foods?

The congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID) parent support group maintains a website that is reviewed by dieticians and physicians familiar with this disorder. On this website, they have lists of foods with the sucrose and starch levels that are commonly used in the diets of individuals with sucrose and maltose. They also offer information on sucrose free medications, sweeteners, recipes, and other resources that may be helpful. You can access the CSID parent support group website by clicking here. In addition, several books offer comprehensive information about sucrose and maltose levels in foods. We suggest using "nutrition data" as your search criteria when searching for books.
