Chicory Root (Ingredient Found In Fiber One Products) Associated With Miscarriage

I just found out that Chicory Root is associated with uterine contractions and miscarriage. I don't think there is any scientific proof of this but I feel like I'd just like to be on the safe side, personally. I am kind of disappointed that Fiber One does not have any notation on their products starting that it shouldn't be eaten when pregnant. Chicory root extract is the very first ingredient of a granola bar that I eat regularly. I'm glad my mom brought this to my attention... Since we are TTC, I'm going to stop eating those immediately, and check any new foods I eat for it. It may very well be in other brands of granola bars. I'm not sure if I'm imagining this but I think it's in Clif and/or Luna Bars, too. =/

I never knew that! They should definitely state that pregnant women should avoid it or be aware of that.
