Eric,
the klebs will ferment any food which passes from the small intestine to the colon undigested, so any undigested food would be a problem, including lactose to those that are intolerant. Starches are a problem for us all because a significant amount is always undigested, and the starches in raw wheatflower and potato are totally indigestible. They only became a possible food source after our forebears played with fire and took up cordon bleu cookery.

This we prescribe though no physician . . .
Our doctors say this is no month to bleed. (Rich. II)
