What Does “Low FODMAP” Mean?


To best utilize this list of low FODMAP breakfast ideas, you need to know what FODMAPS are.

FODMAP is actually an acronym for foods that contain specific short-chain carbohydrates that can cause digestive issues like gas and bloating (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols). Invidivuals with IBS typically find it hard to digest foods that contain FODMAPS and following a “low FODMAP” diet can help alleviate IBS-related symptoms.  

This Beginners Guide to a Low-FODMAP Diet from Healthline can help explain in greater detail. Ultimately if you struggle with digestive symptoms including bloating, gas, and stomach pain often (and have ruled out more serious conditions like Crohn’s or colitis), eating less high fodmap and more low FODMAP foods might be the solution! 

If you are looking for low-FODMAP inspiration, or ways to incorporate these foods into your diet, this list of 17 low-FODMAP approved breakfasts is a great place to start!
