Common IBS Trigger Foods

Everyone responds to food differently, so I recommend using a food diary to identify what your personal trigger foods are before completely eliminating anything from your diet.

Condiments

There are many tasty condiments you can use to dress up a dish. Most condiments don't have much to offer as far as nutrition goes, but they can make nutritious dishes more delicious. Just be mindful of which condiments you decide to use, since some of them are more likely than others to trigger IBS symptoms. The usual offenders include ketchup, pickle relish, chutney, and barbecue sauce. You may be able to tolerate small amounts of some of these foods; work with your RD to determine which and in what amounts are safe for you.
