For individuals suffering from digestive ailements, we suggest learning more about the FODMAPs diet.
FODMAP is an acronym for Fermentable -- Oligosaccharides -- Disaccharides -- Monosaccharides -- And -- Polyols.
FODMAPS are a group of small carbohydrate (sugar) molecules found in everyday foods. Carbohydrates are made up of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and provide an important source of energy for the body. FODMAPs are carbohydrates that may be poorly absorbed in the small intenstine of some people. FODMAPs move through the digestive tract to the large intestine (colon), where they can draw water into the colon and are rapidly fermented (digested) by naturally-occurring gut bacteria. The fermentation of FODMAPs produces gas and other by-products.
While some people are able to consume FODMAPs without experiencing gastrointestinal side effects, many people with digestive disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), find that FODMAPs triggers symptoms including abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, excess gas, constipation and/or diarrhea.
