Okay, looking for advice here.  I've started reading about Inulin.  On the surface, it looks harmless enough if it's the natural kind.  BUT...it you have a possible gut imbalance, it could feed the bad bacteria as well as the good.  Is this right, and what do other members know about it? 
 
Thanks!

i was just reading this article.. maybe you've read it too.. interesting, and while the author does list references at the end, there are no citations on specific claims that she makes..

i do know that inulin is added to childrens culturelle, but not regular culturelle - for the purpose of feeding the probiotic.

this is something i would like to research a little further.. if i find anything definitive, i'll let you know

This is one of the illegal additives for the SCD diet. It can cause undesirable bacterial growth in the gut as well as probiotic growth. Too much of it will cause gas at the very least.

Thanks Keeper.  That's what I was thinking I read.  That it might be okay for you IF you have a normal gut, but for those of us who might have an imbalance, it might feed the bad bacteria as well.  I didn't know about the gas though...I don't want that!
