Is Honey Allowed on the SIBO Specific Diet?
Honey is allowed on the SIBO Specific Diet but not all types. Acceptable types of honey are clover, alfalfa, wildflower and raspberry. These forms of honey have a 50:50 ratio of fructose to glucose and are potentially less reactive for those with fructose intolerance when compared to other types of honeys that have a higher fructose content. Many people who have SIBO also have an underlying fructose intolerance so choosing foods with lesser amounts of fructose is desirable.
