Sugar-free (fructose-free) Anzac biscuit recipes
"Sugar-free" and "fructose-free" recipes

The main kind of sugar that health-conscious people currently try to avoid is high-fructose corn syrup. Many people also try to avoid simple "fructose". And since the sucrose of table sugar contains fructose, many reduce the use of table sugar as well.

Foods and sweeteners that have no such fructose content are appropriately called "fructose-free". But they are also called "sugar-free" even though they might contain more acceptable sugars such as glucose or dextrose. (Glucose and dextrose are very similar but come from different sources.)

Therefore, the ingredients of these Sugar-free Anzac biscuits usually contain no fructose but they MAY CONTAIN OTHER SUGARS.
