Re: [IPu] Low Carb Ice Cream .....



I've bought some and each time I've eaten it it's sat in my stomach 
like a stone leaving me feeling quite ill. Something not right there I 
reckon.

"Polydextrose is a multi-purpose additive synthesized from dextrose 
(glucose), plus about 10 percent sorbitol and 1 percent citric acid."

Cheers,
Luke
