Low FODMAP diet can reduce discomfort of Irritable Bowel Syndrome & functional gut disorders

“FODMAP” is an acronym that stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Mono-saccharides, and Polyols.

FODMAPS are short chain carbohydrates and monosaccharides found in many common foods.

Most people do not absorb FODMAP carbohydrates well. Unabsorbed FODMAPs in the small intestine pass into the large intestine, producing gas and collecting fluid which can cause abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, and significant discomfort.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) & functional gut disorders

Many of our favorite foods are high in FODMAPs, and consumption of these high FODMAP foods often results in intestinal problems, bloating, and abdominal pain.

Foods with high FODMAP carbohydrates adversely affect individuals who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other functional gut disorders.

A low FODMAP diet can help reduce Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other functional gut disorder symptoms.
