**carrots are low in fructose but not completely free - they contain approx 1.3g per 100g. It is recommended you consume no more than 1 muffin per sitting.
** Many spices, such as cinnamon, are very high in fructose. Nutmeg is quite low, 2.25g per 100g.

  1. Cinnamon is not high in fructose. In fact, very few spices are.
