peanut butter jelly time!
      05/26/09 01:32 PM

Okay, question:

I'm totally confused on the issue of peanut butter. I've read where some people can eat it, and some people can't eat it. I'll confess right now that I loves me some peanut butter, and a PB&J sammie is one of life's greatest pleasures...or was, until I went on the IBS eating plan. Since I started back in April, I haven't had any PB, because I'm just so confused about it.

For one, we're supposed to avoid foods high in fat, but most PB is very high in fat. There's the whole issue of the peanuts to start with. And then there's the whole range of varieties...regular, chunky, super chunky, with honey, with chocolate, natural, organic, stir, don't stir, and even soy butter...what in the world?!? I are confused!

So can we eat peanut butter? What should I be looking for on the labels? Are there any ingredients (besides HFCS, which I don't think most PB has) I should totally avoid? I know, I should just try it and see, but I don't want to eat something that could possibly trigger an attack.


IBS-D since...well, a long time
