The Irritable Bowel Syndrome diet programme has been specifically designed to help IBS sufferers by testing and analysing over 158 food and drink ingredients for IgG antibody reactions and providing a personalised list of suitable low FODMAP foods which takes into account your food and drink intolerances.
FODMAP stands for Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccarides and Polyols which are certain types of carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine which then pass into the large intestine, where bacteria ferment them. The combination of bacteria and FODMAP foods in the large intestine produces large amounts of gas that results in bloating, pain, diarrhoea and/or constipation, all classic symptoms of IBS. Following a low FODMAP diet for IBS has been shown to be effective in treating IBS symptoms. The low FODMAP diet is effective for about 70% of people with IBS who try it.*
