What Are the Best Foods for IBS?

Q:
What are the best foods for IBS?

A:
High-fiber foods are the best for IBS. Fiber makes stool easier to pass. It helps many people with IBS-C symptoms, but not everyone.

You can get fiber in foods such as:

  • Whole-grain bread and cereals
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Beans

Simply eat more soluble fiber, rather than the insoluble kind. Soluble fiber stays in the gut longer, which helps the colon work normally.

You find soluble fiber in foods such as:

  • Oats
  • Peas
  • Beans
  • Apples
  • Citrus fruits
  • Carrots
  • Barley
