Ice cream Illegal Commercially prepared ice cream is not allowed. However, there are many wonderful recipes for homemade ice cream.
Inositol Illegal Inositol is a sugar alcohol. Sugar alcohols will
feed bacteria and that is something we do not want to do. Sugar alcohols generally cause diarrhea but small amounts in supplements are ok - Elaine
Inulin Illegal Inulin is a FOS and is illegal, see Inulin
Iron supplements Illegal Please do not get vitamins with iron; they encourage all kinds of infections especially in the gut, and iron has had much research done on it re other diseases. No oral iron if you can help it. Just eat the liver pate and if you like liver, eat it at least once a week.
Isoglucose Illegal It is a new sweetner likely to be used in many products in future. See Isoglucose
left quote
I was shocked at the amount of glowing reviews the Specific Carbohydrate Diet had received but was still in disbelief that this could actually work. I am four weeks in and have gone from symptoms that were quite debilitating to now being at the point where I at times forget I have a chronic disease. Those with Crohn's know how great a feeling that is or would be for those that haven't experienced it.
