What is the low FODMAP diet?

The low FODMAP diet is an eating plan that is often recommended for people with irritable bowel syndrome which may cause symptoms such as excessive wind and bloating and variable bowel habit.

These symptoms are always worth checking with your doctor.

FODMAPs are types of sugars found in common foods such as certain fruits, vegetables, grains and dairy.  They are poorly absorbed in the gut and ferment which may result in stretching of the bowel and gas production.
