Advice needed with soluble fibre supplements
      06/25/07 09:18 AM

I've recently been diagnosed with IBS, and after reading this web site it sounds like trying soluble fibre supplements may help matters..

After telling my local health food store I wanted to avoid psyllium and inulin (due to possible gas side effects mentioned on this site), they recommended FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) as the only option they stocked.

Does anyone know anything about this supplement?

From a quick google, it is described as being an artificial sweetener.. Not sure if that is a bad thing or not!

Only reference on this site is with mention to gas and inulin. If FOS is roughly equivalent to inulin that is probably ok (I'll put up with the possible side effects but wanted to check this will actually do the job..

TIA,
Anthony
