What are FODMAPs?
FODMAPs is an acronym referring to the short-chain carbohydrates (sugars) that can often be difficult to digest.
For those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), FODMAPs aren’t absorbed properly in the gut and can cause digestive stress and exacerbate symptoms of IBS such as abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea or constipation.
As many as 1 in 7 Australian adults suffer from IBS!
Living with any of these symptoms does not have to be the “new normal”.
Monash University developed a Low FODMAP diet to help control symptoms of IBS by limiting the foods that have been shown to aggravate the gut. IBS affects people differently, and the Low FODMAP diet is about monitoring individual reactions to high FODMAP foods and finding a diet that works for you.
