A lot of these foods are nutritious foods, foods containing FODMAPs are not unhealthy foods., they are just poorly absorbed by some individuals.
The main aim of a FODMAP diet is to restrict FODMAPs from a person’s diet and then slowly reintroduce them back, so we can find which is the trigger food for the individual.
When following a low FODMAP diet, it is important to get good quality nutritional information personalised to you, especially through the elimination and during the reintroduction of the FODMAP phase.
Remember every one of us is different – like everything in nutrition this is not a one size fits all approach, whilst certain foods may work for others, they may not necessarily work for you.
