Sounds great....BUT....

Side effects from Fructooligosaccharides - FOS (one the the ingredients) are gas & bloating... If I'm PMS'ing..that is the last thing I need!




info

I do see that listed as potential side effects in the above web link for that one ingredient, but it's a naturally occuirring ingredient and seems to have lots of benefits too, for digestion in particular. I wonder how much of the stuff you have to take in to suffer the bad side effects? I think dismissing the bars for that one ingredient might be throwing out the baby with the bathwater. I might give them a try when I get back from my vacation in September (I don't want to store them in my apt for a month while I'm gone). I'll let you know what I think!
