I recently bought the book "Eating For IBS" and although I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, I've been following the advice about trigger foods (the ones she lists seem to jibe with me) and trying to eat soluble fiber at the beginning of each meal. The trouble is, I can't be sure which fiber is soluble and which is insoluble. Soluble is soothing and Insoluble is a trigger (eaten by itself). But it's necessary to have some insoluble fiber in the diet, too, IBS or no IBS. At least this is what the author says. (And bless her for her help.)OK, I'm really trying to give this a chance. The author says soluble fiber are foods which will dissolve in liquid. OK, so raw vegetables don't dissolve, so they are insoluble. But once well-cooked, they are OK. Does that mean when they are cooked they can be considered soluble?Oatmeal is considered soluble. But it doesn't dissolve, does it?!? Rice is supposed to be good, too. Does rice dissolve? I think not. And I've always heard that white rice is stripped of all its nutrients, so brown rice would be better for you for its fiber. So is brown rice soluble or insoluble?Can anyone list DEFINITE WITHOUT A DOUBT soluble fiber foods for me?!!? Just call me completely confused as usual Nelle

Here's another web-site that lists soluble and insoluble. Some of the fiber values are different though. http://www.acsh.org/publications/prioritie...01/brannew.html Personally I can't eat soluble fiber because it gives me a lot of gas - but insoluble is fine (and necessary since I'm C type). Be careful not to eat too much soluble fiber if you tend to get gas. I think its supposed to be good for controlling D though.As an easy guide to soluble and insoluble... typically fruits and beans are high in soluble, veggies and nuts are high in insoluble, and grains tend to be a mix.[This message has been edited by lk (edited 07-18-2001).]
