Common IBS Trigger Foods


When it comes to IBS, sugar and spice are not necessarily nice. Many types of sweetener, whether it’s a concentrated source of fructose (including sugar, honey, fruit juice, dried fruit, agave, or high fructose corn syrup) or a sugar alcohol sweetener like sorbitol, malitol or mannitol, can send your intestinal track over the edge. Be careful when eating candy, chewing gum, or consuming any other sweet treat or beverage that contains these sweeteners. Also, avoid fresh fruits naturally high in sorbitol like apples, pears, apricots, peaches, plums, prunes, cherries, and nectarines.
