Broccoli sprouts and digestive distress?

BeckyAndTheBeanstock | Feb 18, 2010 08:20 AM

I love cruciferous veggies, but I seem to get particularly intense intestinal pains when I eat too much fiber -- and my body doesn't acclimate to it. So I figure it's just part of the package deal for me. But I"m wondering -- do broccoli sprouts cause the same disruption? If their nutrients are condensed, is their fiber as well? Might they cause even more discomfort?
