I've known two or three people who speak of being "allergic" to white sugar, and have completely eliminated it from their diet. Now, I'm not knocking their choice, because they look and feel a lot better after kicking the sugar habit. I also agree that refined sugar is Bad For You in a variety of ways. However, I'm questioning whether it's possible to have a true allergy to sugar, in the same way that one can be allergic to nuts or shellfish. I'm not talking about diabetes, by the way, just allergies. Does anyone have any good information on this?
