I find the yellow pea protein makes me bloated....
As far as I know, FOS is not an issue with most fruit. Don't let the fructo part fool you. There are glucose-fructose sub units in the structure, but it is not the same as straight up fructose. FOS is a complex sugar, not a simple one. FOS/Inulin is indigestible by humans It gets transported to the large intestine where it feeds microbes and can promote fermentation .FOS is extracted from fruits and vegetables such as bananas, onions, chicory root, garlic, asparagus, barley, wheat, jícama, tomatoes, and leeks. The Jerusalem artichoke and its relative, yacón have been found to have the highest concentrations of FOS of cultured plants.
Ani said:So how do you do the Thrive diet then if you have issues with FOS... i was diagnosed with fructose malabsorption 3 years ago and was on a fruit/grains/dairy/legume and some veggie free diet for 2 years and have now been eating a wider variety of foods. Legumes and most grains are still out and i have to watch how much fruit i eat and since starting thrive (about 70%) 3 weeks ago i just have pretty bad gas and i seem to poop a lot! So i just wonder what everyone who has these problems with FOS (which is largly a fructose problem) eat? I don't want to give up this lifestyle!! I think i'm good with 1 scoop of WFHO in my smoothie. Maybe its just too much fibre? but all of the foods in Thrive are fibre rich?
How does everyone feel about the difference between each of these products? Do they all make sense? Would it be helpful for us to do a blog post differentiating each one for the community? I'd love to get your feedback so we can get this in the works if you'd like to see it. Thanks!
