View Full Version : Does finely shredded coconut bother anyone?
03-28-2004, 01:34 PM
I am trying to figure out where this last flare came from. It could be the course of antibiotics I just finished recently, or perhaps finely shredded dried coconut? What do you think? How many of you can tolerate this kind of coconut? (in small doses). I almost went nuts when I went down the aisle that had it, full of my favorite chocolate and other IC flaring materials, Sheesh!
Love to all,
I've had horrid flares from eating coconut! I now know that coconut is not necessarily a bladder irritant, but when it is preserved with "sulfites" it can be. "Metabisulfite" is listed as a preservative on most shredded coconut available at the grocery store.
When I want to use coconut (I make a really good almond coconut macaroon!) -I use coconut specifically without preservatives I buy at the health food store & keep it in the fridge til ready to use!
Hope that helps!!

i have ate Coconut in small amounts i havent ate a large amount of coconut since i was a kid i use to get the whole coconut and bust it open and drank the milk out of it as a child. so i'm not sure if i can help you here sorry.
i know a small amount doesnt hurt me but most foods are ic friendly to me. i'm one of the lucky ones i guess.
sending you hugs and prayers
I hope your flare goes away soon!

Thank you everyone for your caring and support. I buy in health stores, the flare must have been caused by something else. (Probably the antibiotics which I am finished with just recently).
