Low Fodmap Diet For Treatment Of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)


The diet is the most important in the health of a person, intake of a healthy diet prevents dangerous conditions and diseases such as malnutrition etc. In today’s world the majority of people are consuming food rich in salts, energy, fats, free sugars and subsequently low consumption vegetables, fibres and fruits etc. To manage any type of the disease, food is the first medicine, a healthy diet with exercise prevents the risk of many diseases like: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart diseases, stroke and diabetes etc. The high FODMAP diet results in bloating, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, acidity and severe pain.

Let’s discuss in detail about the low FODMAP diet.



The word FODMAP stands for: Fermentable Oligosaccharides Disaccharides Monosaccharides And Polyols. The meaning of low FODMAP is, the reduction of some kind of carbohydrates which are hard for gut to digest. This diet is specially prescribed to the people, who have functional gastrointestinal diseases such as: IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and some of the food triggers disease. By avoiding usage of such an irritating carbohydrates, provide some time to mucus membrane of the gut to heal, so consuming low FODMAP diet is very helpful in relieving the symptoms. In Ayurveda, food is what makes us both healthy and unhealthy and our Acharaya’s has specially mentioned about: which food we have to take in which Ritucharya (Seasons). So if we have to stay healthy, it becomes very important to follow a diet which is simple, healthy and provide strength to body. In problems like Irritable bowel syndrome, there is a basic prevention of that food which worsens the condition.

What are FODMAPs?


The foods which gut the bacteria feed on, convert them into gases by a chemical process called fermentation.


These are the soluble plant fibres called prebiotics, which feed the beneficial bacteria present in your gut eg, onion, many wheat products, beans, garlic and lentils etc.


This group of sugar mainly includes lactose, sugar in dairy products and human milk. The lactose intolerance is very common food intolerances world wide


This group includes the fruit sugar (fructose sugar)


his group mainly includes the artificial sweeteners also called as sugar alcohols, present naturally in some fruits.

Role of FODMAP in Aigestion

The FODMAPs are ones which are considered to be short chain carbs, generally the sugars in the food are broken down into a single molecule from a complex chain to be absorbed by the intestine very easily. But in FODMAPs, the breaking down does not happen, because they are already short chains, so it becomes very difficult for the intestines to digest specially in patients present with IBS which results in abdominal discomfort, indigestion, diarrhoea and severe pain etc diarrhoea.

Foods high in FODMAPs Are

  • Dry fruits ie. cashew nuts, walnuts and peanuts etc. will add to problems.
  • Dairy products which should not be taken are: butter, cheese, high fat milk and tea etc.
  • The oils which increase the problem of IBS are: coconut oil, palm oil.
  • The pulses ie. chickpeas, black gram and kidney beans contain high FODMAP.
  • Red chillies should not be taken.
  • Vegetables like: garlic, ladyfinger, onion and tomato should not be consumed.
  • Drinks such as: sweetened drinks, canned soups, alcohol and carbonated drinks are not good for IBS patients.
  • Citrus fruits ie. canned fruits, peaches, strawberries and pineapple should not be consumed.

Benefits of Low FODMAP Diet

The Low FODMAP diet is very beneficial for people who are suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and from small intestine bacterial overgrowth or other digestion issues. The Low FODMAP diet contain three phases

  • Elimination Phase: In this phase there is a complete avoidance of the food, rich in FODMAP (mainly dairy products, fruits etc.)
  • Reintroduction Phase: This is the second phase of low FODMAP diet and also called the challenge phase.
  • Maintenance phase: This is the last phase of FODMAP and in this phase the patient eliminates the food which he/she is sensitive to and consumes the food which suits the patient.

Foods Low in FODMAP Are

  • The spices like: fennel,cumin and coriander are good for the stomach.
  • Dairy products which can be taken are cow ghee and dahi only.
  • Pulses which can be taken are: washed dals and green grams.
  • Fruits that can be taken by Irritable Bowel Syndrome patients include apple, banana, apricot, watermelon, pomegranate (without seeds), kiwi, plum, guava.
  • Cereals include wheat, rice, pearl millet, amaranth, oats, quinoa and brown rice can be consumed.

  • Drinks like coconut water, sugarcane juices, green juices, home made juice, aloe vera juice can be enjoyed.

How Does the Low FODMAP Diet Work?

Low FODMAP is a Three-Step Elimination Diet

According to our Acharyas, food is the first medicine, if we consume healthy food and do exercises our body will always remain healthy. Irritable bowel syndrome is a disorder which mainly affects the stomach, intestines and gastrointestinal tract which includes the symptoms of pitta aggravation such as : bloating, diarrhoea, hyperacidity and constipation. In this article we have discussed that in IBS the low FODMAP diet is necessary for absorption of nutrients and digest easily without any hindrance.
