Lutomerase is our replacement of the product Xylosolv. Lutomerase contains 7500 units Xylose Isomerase per capsule. As filling aid we use Calcium Carbonate. The capsule is transparant and made HPMC. Lutomerase is suitable for vegetarians.
Dependent on the amount of fructose you consume, you have to take 1-3 capsules, mostly 1 capsule is sufficient. You use the capsules together with the fructose containing food. If you have problems swallowing capsules you can open them and use the contents with some liquid. The working period of Lutomerase is about 30-45 minutes, after this period you have to take another capsule if you want to consume more fructose containing food.
The product is suitable for each age. With children below four years of age you have to be more careful, they often have problems with swallowing capsules. If this is the case, just open the capsules and give the child the content of the capsule (spread it out on the food, or take it with some water, but do not spread it on hot food/liquids).
We pack our products in small tins, by this you can take them easily with you and enjoy your life!
Hereditary fructose intolerance
Lutomerase can not be used by people with hereditary fructose intolerance! These people have a digestion problem in the liver, not in the intestine.
As fructose is converted into glucose by the use of Lutomerase, no urine acid is being formed in the liver. And as you know: no urine acid, no gout!
