Minimal Fiber Diet for Digestive Disorders

The Minimal Fiber or Soft Diet requires you to avoid more foods than the Low-Fiber Diet, including ALL fruits and vegetables. (Some juices are allowed – download the free Digestive Health Guide to find out which juices are allowed). If you find that your symptoms are getting better, you can gradually begin switching to the Low-Fiber Diet. Below you will find suggestions on foods to consume while following a Minimal Fiber Diet.

  • This diet may be needed if your symptoms get worse, or occur more frequently.
  • This diet has less residue than the Low-Fiber Diet. If you continue to have abdominal or stomach pain and intestinal cramping with this diet, you may need to work with your healthcare team to lower your residue intake even more.
Allowed Foods:
  • Bread and Grains: white flour bread, plain noodles, white potato (no skin), white rice
  • Cereals: cream of rice, cream of wheat, grits, strained oatmeal
  • Dairy: none (although they do not contain fiber, it does add bulk to the stool)
  • Eggs: scrambled
  • Meats: lean only; no tough or fibrous meats; no poultry skins; fish
  • Liquids: almond milk, bouillon, black coffee, clear broth, fruit-flavored drinks, soft drinks, soy milk, strained fruit juice, tea, tomato juice, vegetable juice
  • Desserts: angel food cake, hard candy, flavored gelatin, jelly, popsicles, syrup

*Avoid all fruits and vegetables
