What is the low FODMAP diet?

The low FODMAP diet is a diet specifically designed for those with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) in mind. Those on the diet will go through three phases: Elimination, Reintroduction and Integration, where they will hopefully discover which foods may be triggering their IBS symptoms , and which they can continue to eat going forward without problems.

The low FODMAP diet cuts out or significantly reduces the consumption of certain sugars, which tend to sit in our digestive systems and ferment as we struggle to digest them. As our gut microbiota break them down, they produce gas, which can cause painful bloating and other uncomfortable symptoms.
