If a person has sibo (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) is it okay to eat popcorn or rice?

In brief: SIBO

With small intestinal bowel overgrowth, you want nutrients that are quickly absorbed, leaving less for any bacteria to consume.
A low carb, high fat and high protein diet is best in this case. Popcorn and white rice would fall outside this category -- and are best avoided while your gut is healing. http://www.siboinfo.com/diet.html.
