    [Sorry–i realized too late i should have started a new topic instead of posting this as a reply!]

    Hi there,

    I have SIBO (inactive), diagnosed using a breath test. I’ve had to eliminate gluten, dairy, eggs (i get hives and diarrhea/nausea), soy/legumes, and grapes (in wine/beverages or fresh–they make me nauseous, don’t know why).

    I was told to avoid foods that are high in soluble fiber because they would feed the bacteria, leading to more overgrowth. Thus, my diet is very restricted. I’ve been trying a modified FODMAPS, and I’ve bought your book because I’m interested in the fermentation theory.

    What I don’t see in the charts that are staple foods for me:

    –Rice milk (Rice Dream, regular)
    –Arrowhead Mills puffed rice cereal
    –almond butter (any brand with No salt, no oil, and No sugar) – almonds are mentioned and almond flour, but not almond butter.
    –Cornstarch – I can’t seem to tolerate corn pasta or polenta, but cornstarch in small amounts is different, isn’t it?
    –Ginger–though i see this in your recipes, i wondered about this option: the only “dessert” i allow myself is a handful of Gin-Gins–these are small chewy candies the size of a jolly rancher, made of ginger, cornstarch, and sugar, 20 Calories each.

    Also, i wondered what to do when there’s no way of knowing which kind of rice a food item is made from — as with many kinds of rice crackers (say, Lundgren’s rice cakes or Edward & Sons brown rice snaps)?

    Thank you!

    You could try calling the company to find out details about ingredients. I would assume most rice-based foods use regular white or brown rice, not the low-FP varieties, unless it’s noted.
