Food
Legal / Illegal
Note
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
