    Could we make a simple list of the different prebiotics and which bugs they feed. I'm confused and find that 71 page resistant starch thread daunting.

    1. LARCH ARABINOGALACTAN
    - there are 2 slightly different versions available at Swansons (here) Which is better? Would it best to get the powder or capsules if trying the "FiberAid" version?

    - which bacteria/probiotics does this feed?
    - do you need to have other nutrients to make it work ? (eg. if you are low in vit x, it won't work)

    2. UNMODIFIED POTATO STARCH
    - Bob's Red Mill Unmodified is a good brand
    - what does it feed? (no need for lots of details, resistant starch thread has those)
    - are other nutrients needed for it to work?

    3. FRUCTOLIGOSACCHARIDES (FOS)
    - which brands are good?
    - what do they feed?
    - other nutrients required?
    - I think I read something about certain patients should not take this. Who and why?

    4. GREEN BANANAS/PLANTAIN
    - same questions as above

    If I there are some I haven't listed please add.
