Low-FODMAP Diet

FODMAP stands for a group of five sugars found in certain foods: lactose, fructose (in excess), fructans, galactans and polyols. For some people, FODMAPS are poorly absorbed causing abdominal discomfort or pain. The low-FODMAP diet has two phases that work to figure out which of the five FODMAP sugars and at what amounts are causing symptoms. It is recommended for GI’s and dietitians to work together to determine if there is a need to eliminate a food or food group from a patient’s diet.
