FODMAP is an acronym, which stands for…
Fermentable Oligosaccharides Disaccharides Monosaccharides And Polyols
FODMAPs are a group of short-chain carbohydrates naturally found in foods or food additives. For some people, when consumed, these FODMAPs aren’t properly digested in the small intestines, which can then result in a number of symptoms experienced by IBS sufferers.
Some of these symptoms include:
- Abdominal pain
- Diarrhoea and/or constipation.
FODMAPS can also affect sufferers of coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease.
