Skinny on FODMAPs



FODMAPs are a class of foods that can cause digestive distress in some people.  Essentially, these foods react with gut bacteria cause gas and bloating and are not absorbed easily.   Figuring out which foods are causing you issues can be tricky.

What’s counterintuitive is that some of the healthiest foods are the biggest culprits. Apples, blackberries, cauliflower, mushrooms, snow peas, wheat, rye, onion, garlic, pistachios, as well as whole milk and yogurt, and fresh cheeses such as ricotta and cottage are all on the list.
