Fodmap foods

The Fodmap diet day 4

OK guys. Low Foodmap foods, do you know which they are?  Have you already identified foods that give you uncomfortable bloating, wind & possibly pain?  Yesterday, I shared with you some of the foods I have noticed, over a period of time, cause me problems. Today, I am listing a few “Safe Foods”, in my next blog I will deal with foods to avoid. Please remember, these will vary from person to person & only through trail & error can you identify which applies to you.

In my previous blog Food, what can I eat. I posted a photo of my homemade gluten/dairy free cake & asked “can you eat this on a Low Fodmap Diet”?  The answer is as inconcise as this diet itself.  Whilst it does not contain any gluten, dairy, additives, preservatives, artificial colours or flavourings it does contain sugar [carbohydrate] SUGAR  . All sugars are categorised as monosaccharides, disaccherides or polysaccharides & are a source of chemical energy for living organisms, including humans.  I think you can probably work out the answer, if you have read my previous blogs on this subject. Sugar occurs naturally in whole foods, but is often added to processed foods to increase the flavour. As to much refined sugar in bad for our health, in general, try replacing it with natural sweetners such as some “Safe Food” Fruits.
