Trying to feed good gut bacteria when there is an imbalance with more bad than good bacteria is like throwing fertilizer on a lawn of weeds with only a few good patches of grass, the weeds just take over. I speak from personal experience with this as prebiotics, fiber, starches, inulin, etc.. only made matters worse. Especially, if you have SIBO, but even if you just have IBS. These supplements don’t have a chance of doing any good until the ratio of good/bad gut bacteria is balanced toward the side more good than bad. Many companies are now selling probiotics with prebiotics, this can be detrimental to many people who don’t realize they have an imbalance and make people much worse. I would always try to find a probiotic without prebiotics or food to be on the safe side or get tested and find out if there is an imbalance.
