What Is The Low FODMAP Diet?
The low-fodmap diet is a kind of special diet created by a team of researchers at Monash University in Melbourne Australia. It’s since become a popular go-to for people hoping to improve their overall digestive health and find relief for their IBS.
The overall goal of the diet is to help treat, manage and understand the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) through a temporary elimination phase followed by gradual reintroduction of high FODMAP foods.
What Does FODMAP Stand For?
- (F) Fermentable
- (O) Oligosaccharides
- (D) Disaccharides
- (M) Monosaccharides
- (P) Polyols
FODMAP’s are short-chain carbohydrates (aka sugars) found in food that are not easily broken down and poorly absorbed by the digestive tract leading to discomfort like bloating, pain, etc.
Unfortunately, many high fodmap foods are likely ones commonly found in many of your favorite recipes (garlic, onion, honey, soft cheeses, etc).
Goal of the Low FODMAP Diet
- Eliminate high FODMAP diets from the diet.
- Reintroduce high FODMAP foods gradually over time.
- Personalise the diet to each person based on what is best for them.
Ideally this is something you do with the help of a doctor, dietician or nutritionist to ensure you get all the nutrients you need from your food.
