What is FODMAP?

FODMAP stands for Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccarides and Polyols.
These are certain types of carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. When they pass into the large intestine bacteria ferment them.  The combination of bacteria and FODMAP foods in the large intestine produces large amounts of gas which results in bloating, pain, diarrhoea and/or constipation, all classic symptoms of IBS.

Following a low FODMAP diet has been shown to be effective in treating IBS symptoms for approximately 70% of people who implement it.**

The low FODMAP diet originated in Australia in 1991 and was developed by the research team at the Monash University Department of Gastroenterology in Melbourne.  They found that limiting dietary FODMAPs is an effective treatment for people with IBS symptoms. Recently it has been successfully launched in the UK and is used by the NHS.

Do not take this test if you are:

  • Suffering from a blood borne disease such as Hepatitis or HIV
  • Under 2 years old
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding

Raised levels of food-specific IgG antibodies within your blood indicate that an IgG antibody reaction to a particular food or foods has occurred.  If you have already taken the decision to eliminate a particular food or foods from your diet they may not show up a reaction on your results.  If you know of foods that cause you to feel unwell, do not start eating them; we do not encourage you to eat a food or foods which you already know are a problem to you.

IBS Diet Programme does not provide information about coeliac disease, enzyme deficiencies such as lactose and alcohol intolerance, IgE-mediated allergies, histamine sensitivity or other chemical sensitivities such as reactions to sulphites, tannins or tyramine.  The IBS Diet Programme is only recommended for people who have food and/or drink intolerance symptoms and IBS symptoms.
