So I have used mint altoids, I was curious about how ginger the ginger ones are... as I can't really stand much ginger, it makes me feel nauseas.

I've tried the ginger Altoids, but I couldn't stand the flavor so I stopped eating them. I eat the peppermint ones after dinner since that's when I usually have the most postprandial symptoms and they seem to help a little.

Do the mint ones help anyone? I read that that Sorbitol can actually aggravate IBS, and I guess that is what is in sugar free mints and gum

The Altoids that I have been eating are not sugar free. They contain sugar, peppermint oil, and I think gelatin. That's it.They help a little bit for me, but nothing earth-shattering.
