Ill-effects of fruits and fruit juices

While fruit juice is recommended food, it can upset the stomach of some kids. This is true especially in cases of juices with high amounts of a sugar alcohol called sorbitol. Some children are unable to digest sorbitol, which leads to a bout of diarrhoea.

Apple and Pear juice are high in sorbitol, grape juice contains very little, while orange and lemon juices contain no sorbitol at all.

If a child has a tummy that’s suddenly upset, check for a fruit juice connection and we can spot a remedy easily with the references given in repertories and materia medicas
