Reply to "Itchy rectum. Still...."

Both soluble and insoluble fiber are “good” fiber, but they do have different effects in the gut. Thinking of either as bad can lead to misunderstandings, and even errors about what sort of fiber is found in various foods. Zucchini, for example, has plenty of insoluble fiber (more than soluble), though the ratio would probably change if it were peeled. It is true that some folks with J-pouches need to limit their intake of insoluble fiber, but everyone’s different.
