What are FOD maps?

Updated: Dec 20, 2022


FODMAP stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols, which are short-chain carbohydrates that the small intestine absorbs, often poorly.


High FODMAP foods put additional strain on the body’s digestive system, which can lead to digestive issues.


A low FODMAP diet focuses on eliminating (or limiting) certain foods that negatively affect the digestive system.


Low FODMAP diets also require proper nutritional supervision. For more information, give me a call 07896 806 928 or email me info@melaniesmithnutrition.com
