In brief: Aggravate, not cause

Ibs patients can have food, emotional triggers; can vary with hormones/menstrual cycle.
Some are bothered by cold foods, "gassy" foods (beans, grains, broccoli, etc), fruit (fructose), milk sugar (lactose), fatty foods, carbonated beverages, etc. Diet diary may help clarify, and help rx.
