    I would like to know the same thing. I tried Barbara's Bakery Puffins Original Yesterday. I am in phase 1 of the diet. It's made of corn with no preservatives.

    The ingredients seem inert to me, but maybe the unsulphured molasses.

    I had a slight flare last night with frequency and feeling like I need to pee even right after I did.

    but, I also had honey/buckwheat pancakes for dinner.

    I think the symptoms were prompted by trying to have a BM yesterday afternoon. Always seems to make it worse.

      puffins not a good choice. It hurt me. Do you have a trader joes. They have a few cereals like trader o's and such no vitamins or preservatives. whole foods has envirokids gorilla munch crunch, and many cereals with no vitamins or preservatives. unfortunately store brand cereal do have more of the vitamins. I believe that barbaras puffins honey rice cereal is quite ok. puff rice and millet and corn cereal is good to. whole foods has corn flakes that are real good,they come in a bag and are usually on the bottom shelf. They have a bear on them, they are honey corn flakes just corn honey and sugar cane. Can't have these no more can't digest corn and it bloats me. Darn IBS. some people do well with kashi go lean crunch, however some do not.

        Read the labels to see that there's no preservative like BMT. Kathi

          Cereal!

          I have found ti to be so hard to find cereal that's okay, but today I bought five boxes and they are all okay! Here's what I bought: Trader Joe's Organic O's (I stress, regular organic, the ones with extra fiber have added vitamin c and b6, which drive me crazy, as do the non-organic ones), Trader Joe's vanilla almond clusters cereal, Enviro kids organic Gorilla Munch, FMV (For maximum value) plain puffed wheat, and Quaker 100% Natural Granola: oats, raisins, and almonds. The last two I got at Food 4 Less, believe it or not! Hope this helps!

            Thanks for the replies! I live near Virginia Beach, VA and we do not have Trader Joe's or Whole Foods Market. My options are very limited for health food stores.

            I am going to lay off the cereal for a while. I was just looking for fiber. I'll stick to oatmeal. I seem to be fine with that. And also, I'm going to try some rice bran soon.
