Fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols (FODMAPs) are small carbohydrates and sugar alcohols that are found in certain foods. Fructose, galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), fructans, lactose, mannitol, and sorbitol are FODMAPs. Bacteria located in the end of the small intestine break down these carbs. People who are intolerant of FODMAPs may experience abdominal pain, bloating, excessive gas, and fluid retention after consuming foods that contain them. Garlic, asparagus, pears, peaches, mangoes, rye bread, and wheat pasta all contain FODMAPs. Keep track of what you eat and your symptoms in a food diary to identify things that may be problematic for you.
