What is a low FODMAP diet?

The Low-FODMAP diet is a diet specifically designed for those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Those on the diet will go through three stages: elimination, reintroduction and integration, in which hopefully they will discover foods that may trigger IBS symptoms, and that they can continue to eat them without problems.

A low FODMAP diet reduces or drastically reduces consumption of some sugars, which tend to sit in our digestive systems and ferment while we struggle to digest them. When gut bacteria break it down, they produce gas, which can cause painful bloating and other uncomfortable symptoms.
