Can anyone on here eat fruit without it upsetting them??Ive found I can eat tinned peaches in syrup but havent tried anything else I was just wondering what other people with this condition can eat. Apples dont seem to agree. Any ideas?? I was thinking watermelon might be good cos it doesnt seem citrusy??

Hepped-Up...The trouble with "fruit and IBS" is the same as other foods and IBS..."One persons meat is anothers poison".There are several ways of approaching the problem of "what are my real safe foods and what are my real unsafe foods, not just what appear to be my safe/unsafe foods" which may have no relationship with each other (what we belive them to be and what they are).These two books are not expensive and a good investment for someone wanting to underatnd the subject in more detail, and how to approach it methodically rathee than by guesswork and possibility:IBS: A DOCTORS PLAN FOR CHRONIC DIGESTIVE TROUBLESBy Gerard Guillory, M.D.; Vanessa Ameen, M.D.; Paul Donovan, M.D.; Jack Martin, Ph.D.http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/088...5731950/sr=2-2/ ref=sr_2_2/102-3369143-6824157[/URL]"FOOD ALLERGIES AND FOOD INTOLERANCE: THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THEIR IDENTIFICTION AND TREATMENT", Professor Jonathan Brostoff , M.D..

Depends on the problems you are having, and your mileage may vary.Usually the problematic fruits are the ones that have a bunch of sorbitol in them when they are raw (canning helps get rid of that because it doesn't survive the high temps very well).Citrus fruits do bother some people, but have no sorbitol, but I don't know of anything that make them generally bad for IBS, like the sorbitol issue (enough sorbitol will give anyone diarrhea and gas, but each person has a different tolerance level)Fruits with sorbitol: (note a problem raw, much less when cooked or canned)Peaches/Apricots and all Peach like relatives (nectarines, etc)PearsApplesPrunes/PlumsCherries.So Melons are good as they don't tend to be high in sorbitol.But your mileage may vary. If you can do canned peaches then fructose may not be a big issue for you. Some people find this sugar that tends to be prevelant in fruit (thus the fructose...or latin for fruit sugar
) Some people are OK with some fruits but can't do high-fructose corn syrup.Watch out for fruit juices. Many are sweetened iwth HFCS or if 100% juice with apple or pear, and that can make them problematic.K.
