I have not heard of this before and have always found yoghurt to alleviate any symptoms I get. It's good to have information, thank you.

I have IBS-C and 18 months ago had a colon resection with 12 inches removed due to diverticulitus. Since then, the constipation had gotten worse and I was put on Miralax which helps greatly, but I was still having occasional pain,bloating and gas.
By accident, I found out that the cause of it was when I ate yogurt, but am not dairy intolerent. Subsequently, I saw an article about the ingredient called carageenan that is found in yogurt and other products that can cause intestinal distress. I found relief within days of cutting this out. It's also can be found in salad dressings, ice cream, cottage cheese, lunchmeats. It's a substitute for gelatin and comes from red seaweed. Has anyone else heard about this?
