Common IBS Trigger Foods

Milk and Dairy

It’s not easy to figure out which foods are responsible for triggering irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, but many IBS sufferers are wary of milk and dairy. These very common culprits often wreak havoc on the digestive systems of those with IBS. If you experience discomfort after consuming dairy, steer clear of yogurt, cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and prepared foods that contain dairy (creamy soups and sauces, mashed potatoes, pudding, and so on).
