    osmotic food


    patients with diarrhea must avoid to drink hyperosmotic liquids, because it will cause osmotic diarrhea

    but why a carb solution is considered a hyperosmotic liquid, since carbs move fast across the membrane of the intestine?

    also, aren't all food considered hyperosmotic, since they contain many osmols? even rice or bread or soups that are recommended?
