Hi there,

They also have lots if less digestible sugar like cellulose.

So that can cause diarrhea or loose stools as normal reaction.

over time your intestine will get used to that.

But initially the intestine is not able to handle this fiber type sugar ( carbs).

You can try over the counter loperamide to stop the loose stools.

Also try to consume in smaller amounts to prevent loose stools in future.

Best wishes,

Is it normal to have a BM that looks like a 4 or 5 on the Bristol scale and then it breaks apart in the water ?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

Yes it is normal --with this type of fiber based drinks.
