Did you know that over 30 ORGRAN products are certified FODMAP Friendly? If you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), you may have heard the term before.

FODMAP

FODMAP is an acronym, which stands for…

 

Fermentable Oligosaccharides Disaccharides Monosaccharides And Polyols

In short, FODMAPs are a group of short-chain carbohydrates naturally found in foods or food additives. For some people, when consumed, these FODMAPs aren’t properly digested in the small intestines, which can then result in a number of symptoms experienced by IBS sufferers.

Some of these symptoms include bloating, wind, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhoea and/or constipation. FODMAPS can also affect sufferers of coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease.

The low FODMAP diet has been scientifically proven to be the most effective dietary method for treating irritable bowel syndrome. It is recommended that you first discuss your concerns with your doctor if experiencing such symptoms.

For over 30 years, ORGRAN has been committed to providing customers with solutions to assist a host of dietary requirements. As such, you will find the FODMAP Friendly logo across a range of ORGRAN products, including Crispibreads, Wafer Crackers, Pasta, Baking, Cooking and more.
