Even Jello is a no-no. I used to eat a lot of Jello thinking it was a safe food. Loaded with sugar.

So, this is interesting to hear. Amazing my GI specialist nor the dietician I was referred to mentioned anything about this, in fact (I knew from reading) that diet seems important for SIBO – I usually hear FODMap , and I asked my Mayo Dr. and he said, no; it doesn't matter. I'm in the middle of my antibiotics for the SIBO, so I want to be doing everything I can to prevent it from relapsing!
