Davis, a naturopath told me once white rice is constipating. Then other things I've read indicate rice is v. well tolerated by the gut. However, the Food Allergy book I read - can't remember name - check posts here in this BB - said that leftover rice deteriorates v. quickly and forms some kind of bacteria on the shell within 2 days after cooking, even if refridgerated and advised eating it asap. So maybe the bacteria could cause the constipation???? Hope this helps. Posted Image

No single food can directly cause constipation! Only a LACK of fiber or fibrous foods can.If a person fills up on low-fiber foods like rice, they may tend to consume less high-fiber foods. It's just the lack of fiber, not the rice, that's causing the problem.Unlike cramping or D, constipation is not "triggered." If a person has C, he or she developed it over several days. It's the whole diet over several days that is constipating, NOT a single food.
