FODMAP (Gastrointestinal)

FODMAP is term coined by researchers at Monash University in Melbourne to describe a group of sugars that can be poorly absorbed in the intestinal tract, contributing to the onset of symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
The FODMAP acronym stands for:
Fermentable
Oligo-saccharides
Di-saccharides
Mono-saccharides
And
Polyols

The FODMAP diet is an elimination diet that will omit fructose, lactose, fructans, galactans and polyols in order to determine which group is causing your symptoms.

One of our registered dietitian can guide you through the low FODMAP elimination diet. It may take some adjustment in the foods that you choose and the way that you cook, but how great it is to have some relief from IBS.
