    I have a question about tomatoes.  As they are classed a fruit do they contain fructose?  Can anyone enlighten me?

    yes and yes Anne ... but as long as you eat the whole thing you should be right ... the no juicing rule applies to tomatoes too :-)

    I put them on the Vegetable graph instead of the fruit graph because they're more likely to appear in a salad than a fruit salad ... but as a fruit goes they tick all the right boxes with low fructose content - at 2% they are lower than all other fruits and most berries.

    Cheers
