  • What is FODMAP?

    I found an article about a woman that mentioned FODMAP, does anyone know what this is and where I can find more info? I typed this in and didn't find what I needed.

    Thanks

    I think it stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, and Mono-saccharides, And Polyols.

    Glad I could help you out.

      FODMAP=Fermentable Oligo-Di-Monosaccharides and Polyols)
      FODMAPs are carbohydrates (sugars) that are found in foods. Not all carbohydrates are considered FODMAPs.
      The FODMAPs in the diet are:
       Fructose (fruits, honey, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), etc)
       Lactose (dairy)
       Fructans (wheat, onion, garlic, etc)(fructans are also known as inulin)
       Galactans (beans, lentils, legumes such as soy, etc)
       Polyols (sweeteners containing sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, maltitol, stone fruits
      such as avocado, apricots, cherries, nectarines, peaches, plums, etc)

      FODMAPs are osmotic (means they pull water into the intestinal tract), may not be
      digested or absorbed well and could be fermented upon by bacteria in the intestinal
      tract when eaten in excess.
