What is the low FODMAP diet?
As many as 15 to 20% of the population suffers from irritable bowel syndrome, or a spastic bowel. The condition causes many intestinal complaints and has a major influence on the quality of life. Unfortunately, there is as yet no cure.
The low-FODMAP diet can bring relief from the symptoms. FODMAP stands for 'Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols'. It are these FODMAPs that often cause complaints. They are poorly absorbed in the small intestine, so they end up undigested in the large intestine, which leads to complaints.
The low-FODMAP diet is, as the word itself says, poor in these FODMAPs. However, FODMAPs are numerous in our diet, think of wheat, milk, legumes, all kinds of vegetables and fruit. Avoiding these substances in our daily diet is therefore not easy.
How Damhert can help you?
At Damhert we offer a wide range of functional foods, such as our gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian, fibre fit and organic range, to meet the needs of consumers.
Many of our products are also suitable for a low FODMAP diet. In our gluten-free range you will find numerous products that fit into a low FODMAP diet, such as our gluten-free breads, pastas and some cakes. Wheat has been replaced in these products by low FODMAP varieties such as buckwheat flour, corn flour and rice flour.
In addition, you will also find a variety of alternatives in our Biofood range. For example, our buckwheat and spelt products are ideal for replacing wheat, but the rice and corn waffles are also low in FODMAP and therefore suitable as a snack.
Lactose is also a FODMAP. For this we offer numerous alternatives in our lactose-free range.
