Low FODMAPS diet

Here is a bit of information about the low FODMAP diet as we discussed in the newsletter.

A low FODMAP diet involves elimination of a larger number of high FODMAP foods that would not be excluded in a diet that only required avoidance of gas-producing foods (eg, foods that contain fructose, including honey, high-fructose corn syrup, apples, pears, mangoes, cherries, or oligosaccharides, including wheat).

Low FODMAP education consists of initially eliminating FODMAPs from the diet for six to eight weeks and then, following symptom resolution, gradual reintroduction of foods high in fermentable carbohydrates to determine individual tolerance to specific fermentable carbohydrates.
