Tonight I had some of the worst D. I drank some white grape juice, and within 2 hours I was running to the bathroom. It was so bad, I was like a running faucet. It was like I was doing the colonoscopy prep.I'm pretty sure the white grape juice caused it, because that's the only "new" thing that I consumed today. Does white grape juice have any sugars that might cause D?

Now that you mention it I drink grape juice and it doesn't affect me, I'm IBS-D. But my hubby who has a rock hard stomach and no stomach issues at all makes it a priority to drink grape juice when he feels constipated...he swears it makes him go to the bathroom.

Well my doctor mentioned that orange juice can cause ibs d, though i haven't experienced any problems with that myself, but maybe grapefruit juice has something similar in it. Any way now you've found out that that causes it you can avoid it now. I know i get awful D if i even taste black pepper, which used to be used a lot in my house so we had to make some big changes there lol.

Ususally white grape juice is considered intestine friendly because they don't have any sugars or sugar alcohols to set you off.Was it real juice, or a spritz of fruit juice that is mixed with high fructose corn syrup?http://www.askdrsears.com/html/4/t042600.asp#T042601 for the which fruits have bad sugars in them info.K.

It was Welch's 100% White Grape Juice.I might try some again tomorrow just to confirm that it caused it.

Even when a food should be safe people may have a reaction to it that is atypical.It is always good to recheck a food a couple of times. Sometime the IBS goes off for a NON-dietary reason and the food gets the blame.

Hmm, the white grape juice didn't affect me tonight. The only other thing I can think of that I consumed was some flavored AquaFina water, which has these ingredients:Filtered water, white grape juice concentrate, natural flavors, phosphoric acid, sodium hexametaphosphate, citric acid, potassium citrate, aspartame, potassium benzoate, potassium sorbate, acesulfame potassium, calcium disodium EDTA, vitamin E acetate, niacinamide, vitamin B6, vitamin B12I'm always drinking aspartame, so I know that doesn't cause any problems for me. But could any of those other ingredients cause problems?
