  1. I just found this site because I was looking for upset stomach from oat bran. I don’t see how it’s good for your stomach, it gives me problems. I’m fine when I don’t eat any.

    1. Teresa,
      foods that are naturally high in soluble fiber include: oatmeal, pasta, rice, potatoes, French or sourdough bread, soy, barley, and oat bran.
      Soluble fiber should ALWAYS be the first thing you eat on an empty stomach, and it should form the basis of EVERY snack and meal. Your goal is to keep your colon consistently stabilized by providing it with a regular supply of soluble fiber….just an advice….thanks for commenting:)
