Was reading an English NHS guide for dealing with diarrhea.  In stated, no sausages and no HOT toast or FRESH BREAD.    Can somebody throw light on why hot toast and fresh bread?  Is it to do with the yeast?  Is It ok to have cold toast and bread that is a couple of days old?  It also said no pork products, No bacon. 
 
I do wish they would add a little to tell you why.  Understanding why will help with dietary control of IBSD.

Interesting. I prefer plain white bread toasted (your local bakery bread is best). I never buy Wonder bread though (I'm sorry but bread seems so unhealthy to eat).

I've never heard you shouldn't eat bread toasted that is still hot or warm.

Hopefully someone will have a good answer for us.

Was there emphasis on hot and fresh? I have problems with white bread in general because my gut bacteria make gas out of it really fast. Dark brown and rye bread seem less gassy. I am also limited to bread without preservatives (aka "dough conditioners"). Even most bakery bread has too many additives for me.

I can't eat pork either because it contains natural sulfites which I don't tolerate. I can have a strip or two of bacon, but never a sausage or a slice or roast pork, unless I want a trip to the ER.

But I don't get diarrhea from either bread or pork, just nausea, gas and tachycardia.

As the site had no explanation and just said hot toast I tried a piece of cold toast yesterday and it went through ok.  It was not fresh bread either.   I have found that bread can make me run and toast which I love has to go by the wayside because it gives me sickness and D.  I keep bread in the refrigerator now as the  yeasts firment in room temperature conditions, thats why you get the mould growths after a couple of days.  Have always used the bratt diet for D in the past, but this toast thing has got me wondering.  Wonder if it is the warmth of the toasting increasing bacteria in the chosen spread before you consume it?
