Fruit juices aren't always a good choice for people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). A glass of fruit juice can be considered one of the daily recommended 5 servings of fruits and vegetables, but choose the type of juice with care.
Some fruit juices don't actually contain much actual fruit juice -- only about 10% or less, and may contain sorbitol. Prune juice can have a laxative effect. Apple or grape juice may cause diarrhea or cramping. Orange juice, due to high citric acid content, may contribute to heartburn.
