    Experiencing abdominal pain, bloating, gas or digestive discomfort? Your problem could be FODMAPs—specific types of carbs that can be difficult for some people to digest and trigger digestive discomfort.

    Nowadays a growing number of physicians and dietitians are recommending personalized nutrition solutions including a low FODMAP diet. The low FODMAP diet was developed by Monash University in Australia, and clinical studies have shown significant reduction in GI symptoms (including abdominal pain, bloating, excessive gas, constipation or diarrhea) in people following a low FODMAP diet.1 2

    What are FODMAPs?

    FODMAP is an acronym that stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols. This group of carbohydrates—often referred to as "FODMAPs"—have a few things in common:

    1. FODMAPs can be poorly absorbed in the small intestine
    2. FODMAPs can cause excessive water to be drawn into the intestines
    3. FODMAPs can become rapidly fermented by bacteria present in the colon, which produces gas
    4. Water and gas buildup creates distension, cramps, and diarrhea or constipation

    By reducing the amount of these specific types of carbohydrates, digestive symptoms can be minimized.
