FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Mono‐saccharides and Polyols) are a group of dietary sugars that are indigestible or poorly absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract. FODMAPs exert an osmotic effect in the bowel, resulting in increased movement of water through the small intestine. Slowly absorbed and indigestible FODMAPs are fermented by gut bacteria to produce gas, a process which can distend the bowel and in people with IBS, contribute to symptoms of bloating, abdominal pain and altered bowel motility.A low FODMAP diet should only be commenced under the supervision of a healthcare professional.”
