What is the Low FODMAP diet?

Low FODMAP is a specialized diet that recent research suggests can help alleviate symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

FODMAP stands for:

Fermentable

Oligo-saccharides,

Di-saccharides,

Mono-saccharides

And

Polyols

These sugars can be poorly absorbed. They are found in a wide variety of foods.

FODMAPs have a wide range of effects on the gut. A diet low in FODMAP can be quite restrictive but can be effective in eliminating many of the IBS symptoms such as bloating, lower abdominal pain, wind, distension and altered bowel habits (diarrhea and/or constipation). It is vital that you seek guidance from a dietitian with experience in the area. This will ensure your diet remains well balanced and healthy.
