Hi.....what we eat is definitely subjective...but for me, UC or not, granola bars and oats are pretty explosive.
I couldn't care less about
the sugar content, it's the Kashi and oats that would have me in discomfort for a few days.
Yes, it's good fibre, but my suggestion is to try not to have it on an empty stomach. maybe eat it after a meal....
Personally, I haven't eaten granola bars since the 70's during their first craze...they killed me then, they kill me now whether in a flare or not.
I think that a fibre supplement might be easier for you to deal with than granola....but that's based on my own experience.
keep us posted as to your experience.
