So yesterday I questioned the FRUCTAN in the breakfast cereal. Spent some time reading all sorts of articles, blogs, with both pros and cons. One, http://fructosefriendlyfoodie.com/food-guides/fructan-content, even goes as far of listing different fruits & veggies I should avoid because of them. Apparently, a fructan is a naturally occurring part of our food, that our intestines can't digest. Big cause of stomach & intestinal problems for sensitive people. Not sure how to kitchen test this ingredient, since the ingredients specifically name a brand & that is sold in vitamin form. http://www.swansonvitamins.com/swanson-probiotics-nutraflora-prebiotic-enhancing-formula-750-mg-60-veg-caps May take this query to the Facebook group and see what wisdom they can offer.
