    "FOS fermentation increased fecal wet weight, bifidobacteria, lactobacilli, and lactic acid. Consumption of FOS increased flatulence and intestinal bloating."

    When I have a lot of soluble fiber, this happens.

    I like Dr. Galland, he seems to not have a bias, recommending whatever works best.

    That's a mighty large list of resources.

    This is good to hear about insoluble fibre, and yet, I greatly improved my 30+ years of IBS-C with lots of daily acacia powder over a one year period. It's soluble fibre. Improved my IBS by about 80%.

    Be wary that insoluble fibre really aggravates IBS for many people. When I had IBS, insoluble fibre gave me terrible pains, bloating, etc, which is very common.

    I can now eat both type of fibre with no problems but did do other treatments after the acacia too.
