Skinnybik do not contain laxative sweeteners like mannitol, maltitol, sorbitol or xylitol found in other low carb/sugar free products. Polydextrose fibre may have a laxative effect if you consume 15 bikkies or more in one day! As for the bloating, lupin is a legume which may cause bloating in some people, especially in those with IBS. Diarrhoea and bloating has been rarely reported by my patients over the last 10 years!
Will they cause diarrhea or bloating like other low carb products?
