Hi,
I have had a upper GI that showed mild Gerd, and a Colonoscopy that showed diverticulosis. When I eat any berries with seeds, such as Raspberries, Strawberries,Blackberries, they find themselves in those pockets and gets inflamed causing great upset, and hopefully will not lead to diverticulitis,a more serous condition..
I love having protein smoothies with these fruits,but end up with thousands of seeds. I try to put them through a Sieve or cheesecloth,but it takes forever to screen these all out.
is there anything on the market to help filter these little devils out? smhair

My mother has diverticulosis and has just avoided the little buggers. Have you tried a juicer? Mine strains the seeds and pulp out.

Unhappy -
Welcome. Diverticulosis runs in my family and the only thing I know to do is avoid the seeds anyway possible. They sure can cause a lot of problems for being so small. I also have a problem with most nuts, but eat them once in awhile anyway.

Take care,
Bill
