All about the Low FODMAP Diet

All about the Low FODMAP Diet

Proven to help sufferers of IBS

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects more than 20% of the population. It’s a debilitating condition which can range from mild/infrequent symptoms to constant pain and suffering which takes over your life. Typical symptoms include a change in bowel habits (constipation and/or diarrhoea), bloating, fatigue, stomach cramps and back pain.

What is the Low FODMAP Diet?

It’s a scientifically proven diet to reduce and even eliminate the symptoms of IBS in over 75% of people who try it.

It works by completely removing high FODMAP ingredients such as onions, garlic, lentils, lactose and wheat, which are hard to digest, from your diet for a short period of time and then you reintroduce as many as you can to your own tolerance. The diet can be challenging, but totally worthwhile sticking to. Find details about the three phases of the diet below including some top tips along the way to help you succeed.

As with any diet, but particularly due to the large amount of foods you’ll eliminate to start with on this one, we cannot express enough how much we recommend you to seek advice and guidance from a registered and FODMAP trained dietician and ideally your GP too. The diet can be difficult to follow, and whilst you’re thinking of what meals you could make and scanning food labels for ingredients, you don’t want to worry about whether you’re getting enough fibre or nutrients etc. Ask your dietitian to help you create a balanced diet and meal plans – it’ll be worth it!

We’ve spent a huge amount of time working with trained chefs and dieticians to create convenient, great tasting low FODMAP foods.

We send all our products for FODMAP Friendly Foods certification, so you can be safe in knowing they are suitable to eat whilst on the elimination stage of the diet.

We’ve focussed a lot on the flavour of our fodmap friendly products, to ensure you don’t have to compromise on taste – so yes, you’ll find award-winning fodmap friendly curry sauces without onion and garlic!
