How can people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) get more fruit in their diet?

ANSWER

Fruits are great choices because they include both fiber and extra water. Here are a few examples:

  • 1 apple = 3.7 grams of fiber
  • 1 banana = 2.8 grams
  • 1 pear = 4 grams
  • 1 cup of strawberries = 3.8 grams
