FODMAP is the current buzz word in the world of gut health and gastrointestinal distress. The low-FODMAP way can relieve even the most severe digestive discomfort. However, unlike most diets, this is not a fad. Rigorous clinical trials have proved the diet's effectiveness in treating symptoms of gut distress, and the scientific community, along with the general public, is excited about it and its role in treating functional gastrointestinal symptoms. FODMAP is an acronym for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols. These carbohydrates, present in a normal, healthy diet, are not fully digested and absorbed in the small bowel and go on to be fermented in the latter part of the bowel. This results in the production of gases and an influx of water, which, in susceptible individuals, can cause pain, discomfort, constipation or diarrhoea and excessive wind. Lowering the intake of FODMAPs in the diet can lead to substantial - many would say, miraculous - improvement in symptoms. The low-FODMAP diet has been shown in rigorous clinical trials to improve symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) such as bloating, abdominal pain, excessive wind and diarrhoea in up to 75 per cent of patients. The diet has also been used to help those with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease and other causes of gastrointestinal upset. This book demystifies the low-FODMAP diet and provides 125 tasty and delicious recipes for a happy gut.
