Probiotic - Is FOS ok?
« on: April 20, 2011, 08:16:32 am »
Hi, We are new to probiotics and have started them for DD's mucous poos and lower gut symptoms.  DD is taking the dairy free Metagenics powder. Lately am obsessed with reading labels for my ED and noticed it has "FOS" Fructooligosaccharides which from the little reading I have done, is a prebiotic but seems to have mixed opinions as to whether it is a good thing or bad thing. Was just curious if anyone knows anything about it and whether it is OK?  DD seemed to have weird reaction last night although at this stage not confident it has to do with probiotics??
