Question
i have ibs i was just woundering can i have jar sauces

Answer
Hi Nicola

Thanks for asking about jar sauces. There is no yes/no answer to this. A lot of sauces do have gluten in them, a protein that's in wheat, rye and barley. Gluten intolerance can be an issue for some sufferers. If you have found that bread, cakes and other gluten containing foods cause you problems then check the ingredients before trying.

Good luck
