What is FODMAP? FODMAP stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols, which are short-chain carbohydrates (sugars) that the small intestine absorbs poorly. The FODMAP diet is a dietary approach that aims to reduce the intake of these types of carbohydrates.
Fiber is a type of carbohydrate found in plant-based foods that the human body cannot digest or absorb. It comes in two main types: soluble and insoluble, and eating a diet that is high in fiber can have many health benefits, such as improving digestion, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke, and helping with weight management.
