Broccoli does not fit into the FODMAPs diet
Diet may play a significant role in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Dr Sue Shepherd and other people have been studying food to find common denominators for natural ingredients in food. They have found that by eliminating certain foods from our diet, many problems with the gut can be controlled.
This may also have implications for people with allergies and other such problems.
Some natural ingredients in our food that may not agree with some people are fructose, mannitol, sorbitol, lactose and oligosaccharides. These can ferment in the gut causing bloating, rumbling and flatus (wind from the bowel). These symptoms can be very distressing for the person suffering from this as well as for those around them.
Foods to Avoid
Some foods you may already know about, others you may not, but they may still be causing you problems. Watch your symptoms when you eat some of these foods
Legumes, dried beans, lentils, green peas, sweet corn, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, milk and milk products, wheat and rye, onions and garlic
These are just a few of the common foods that may be causing this problem.
If you think you need further help find a dietician who can help you eliminate all the foods in these categories then see how you feel.
