How about barbecue and IBS patients?

Different people have different opinions on whether IBS patients can eat barbecue if they can.

As far as meat is concerned, fat-free, well-cooked is very good for IBS patients, but undercooked or undercooked meat can show gas-like symptoms in any case. [2]Food Poisoning | Johns Hopkins Medicine

Similarly, barbecues are also a major contributor to the symptoms of IBS. The main reason is that the spices in the meat are important for showing the symptoms of IBS. [3]Consumption of spicy foods and the prevalence of irritable bowel syndrome (wjgnet.com)

In the same way, if there is less cooked meat, it also causes a lot of pain.
People who regularly eat meat and especially meat cooked on coals suffer from stomach related issues. i.e., They have digestive problems.

Similarly, spices and meats that contain high levels of red pepper can also cause gas and IBS symptoms.

This can lead to gas discomfort and constipation in your stomach and intestines.

How to eat barbecue in IBS?

If you are an IBS sufferer and want to eat barbecue too, you should take special care that you make barbecue without spices and red pepper.

And cook it very well so that it is cooked from the inside. Similarly, do not use the sauce that is used with barbecue at all. And if there is carbonated water, avoid it too as it will also cause gas complaint.

What to do if IBS patients eat spicy barbecue?
