FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols. These are types of carbohydrates that some individuals may have difficulty digesting, leading to gastrointestinal symptoms. Common FODMAPs include lactose, fructose, fructans, galactans, and polyols.
Low FODMAP foods are those that contain lower amounts of fermentable carbohydrates known as FODMAPs. The low FODMAP diet is often used as a dietary approach to manage symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or other conditions related to FODMAP intolerance.
Symptoms associated with FODMAP intolerance or sensitivity can vary among individuals but often include abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, abdominal distention, and nausea. Health Enhanced Foods has flours that are gut-friendly, naturally nutritious and may be tolerable to those with IBIS conditions.
