Have you ever heard someone mention the word FODMAP or low FODMAP diet to you?
If you experience recurrent bloating, gas and cramps, diarrhea and constipation, or other gastrointestinal symptoms after eating, a low-FODMAP diet may be worth looking into. This diet is designed to help people with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and other stomach irritations, to have far less symptoms and a more enjoyable life.
The term FODMAP is an acronym, derived from “Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols”. FODMAPs are short chain carbohydrates that humans have trouble digesting in the small intestine.
