 The term FODMAP is an acronym, deriving from “FermentableOligo-Di-Mono-saccharides and Polyols“.  The restriction of these FODMAPs from the diet has been found to have a beneficial effect for sufferers of irritable bowel syndrome and other gastrointestinal disorders.

  • Abdominal pain

  • Bloating

  • Flatulence

  • Burping

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea

  • Dyspepsia
