FODMAP and diet for irritable bowel syndrome

Our digestion is a complex process that is influenced by many factors. People with sensitive intestines know how stressful it can be when certain foods cause discomfort and digestive problems. This is where low FODMAP products come into play.

What are FODMAPs?

Low FODMAP diet

The independent Monash University in Australia is recognised worldwide for its leading role in the research and development of the FODMAP concept. The university operates an established programme for testing the FODMAP content in food products and subsequent certification.

To ease the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, Monash University recommends a diet based on the FODMAP nutrition concept, which is divided into the following three phases:

1. Elimination

Foods rich in
FODMAPs are avoided for two to six weeks and replaced with
low-FODMAP products.

2. Re-introduction

Within eight to twelve weeks, various FODMAPs and products are reintroduced into the diet one after the other and the effects are observed.

3. Individual plan

The effects are used to create a personalised nutrition plan with a list of foods that should be restricted.
