Mannitol is often put in sugar-free or diet candies and can cause a diuretic effect which includes diarrhea.

Actually I believe it is called maltitol. It is currently being used in quite a lot of sugar free items that are not usually sugar free such as hard candies and chocolates. I myself cannot process it well at all and have had a massive negative experience with it in sugar free chocolate. And yes the experience involved lots and lots of bathroom time. And pain.

I would give you a link if you like, but they all seem to be in irritating pdf format but I can assure you, the particular chemical I speak of is mannitol.

EDT: Neither of us is wrong. They're both artificial sweeteners used in candy and both have a diuretic effect.

I tried ten years of words. Do you honestly want your head to explode?

Do you know what his favorite food in the whole wide world is, what he could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, every day, seven days a week?

Boiled unseasoned chicken cooked in water and plain white rice.

I wish I was joking.

quinoa is actually really good. It's texture is akin to couscous or lentils. It is bland so it takes the flavor of whatever you put in it really well. It's good sweet or savory. Flavor it with butter, raisins or cranberries, salt, and cook it in chicken stock. It fluffs up when it's done.

It really takes on any flavor that you add to it. The texture is soft...I'm not sure how else to describe it.

Rob will ONLY eat angel hair and he didn't mind the texture.

It's really easy to cook with...make sure you rinse it under cold water before you cook with it. I cook mine in stock, and a little butter.

You can check foodgawker or even youtube for some great videos and recipes!

CP - Thanks for the heads up on another ingredient to avoid. I don't like the aftereffects at all.

And I freaking love quinoa. I never had it before and bought a preflavored kind that was from Uncle Ben's that you nuke in the package and eat. Hubby and I were fighting over the dregs left in the bottom of the package. The texture is great, IMO. And I have never made it plain, so I trust what the others have said about it taking on the flavors because the Uncle Bens is just awesome.

Be careful with corn! It can really raise your blood sugar quickly.

I have found Quinoa in Walmart and Target. It's normally by the rice on the top shelf!

ETA..Is it the Whole Grain Medley?
Yes, I believe it is the Whole Grain Medley. Seriously I think you just stand it in the microwave for 90 seconds and then pour it out of the bag. It isn't cheap as plain white rice, but for taste and convenience, it can't be beat.
