I was just putting groceries away and noticed one of the ingredients on the protein bars that I eat daily is chicory root extract. So I googled it to see if it was safe during pregnancy, and of course it's not. While I assume it's not safe when taken in large doses, and the amount in a protein bar is fine, I am paranoid about eating them now as taken in large doses it causes bleeding/miscarriage. Apparently Fiber One products contain this too, as does the Kashi cereal I have been eating. I have been eating these protein bars almost daily since even before I was pregnant, and I'm now 25 weeks along, but scared to eat them anymore. What do you all think?
