Fructans and the Low-FODMAP Diet

Jennifer Morzier August 11, 2020 , ,

If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you must have already heard of the low-FODMAP* diet. This diet is divided into three phases. First of all there is the elimination phase during which one removes from their diet, for 2 to 6 weeks, the 6 families of carbohydrates (Fructans, Lactose, GOS, Fructose, Mannitol and Sorbitol) which can often be the cause of digestive discomfort. Then, when the symptoms have disappeared, comes the approximately 7 weeks reintroduction phase. The goal is to test your personal tolerance to the different families of FODMAPs. To do this, every week you reintroduce a food, per FODMAP family, to find out to which family your digestive system reacts to. Once the culprits are identified, comes the maintenance phase during which you exclude from your diet the families that are causing digestive symptoms only.

Today we will focus our attention on a family of FODMAPs in particular called “fructans”.
