10 Tempting Trigger Foods IBS Sufferers May Want to Avoid
Forget fast food sauces, condiments, and gravies.
You can be sure that most fast food sauces and gravies are land mines for IBS — they have ingredients that aren’t even labeled, including MSG, aspartame, colorings, dyes, emulsifiers, and all kinds of other awful stuff.
This holds true for not-so-fast food restaurants as well. Many popular chain and privately owned restaurants use mixes for their gravies and sauces to save time in the kitchen. And check to see if your local diner actually mashes real cooked potatoes or adds milk to a powdered mixture.
