Food Chemicals or FODMAPs, What’s Your IBS Trigger

Research indicates 50-80% of people get an improvement on the low FODMAP Diet. But, what if you’re one of the 20-50% that don’t? Food chemicals are different from FODMAPs, they occur naturally in many foods or can be added in food processing. For some people these can trigger IBS symptoms.

How Diet Influences Mental, Brain and Gut Health

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional bowel disorder. The causes of IBS are multifactorial but include a disturbance of the brain-gut axis and possibly an altered gut microbiome. It is well established that the common mental disorders of anxiety and depression often co-exist with IBS, which are likely linked to these factors. Hence, the emerging area of nutritional psychiatry is important in terms of how diet can influence mental and brain health.

Common mistakes made on the low FODMAP diet

The low FODMAP diet is effective in relieving gut symptoms such as bloating, wind, diarrhoea, constipation and stomach pain in up to 3 out of 4 IBS sufferers. But the low FODMAP diet is quite complicated, and it can be easy to make simple mistakes. This video provides insight into some of the most common mistakes made on the low FODMAP diet and what you can do to avoid them so you can settle down your symptoms faster.

When low FODMAPs is not enough

In those with food reactions, potential low FODMAP diet triggers are often investigated first. If symptoms persist, and the diet has been implemented correctly, you may want to explore whether natural and added food chemicals are other possible food triggers. Food is complex. Some of the natural chemicals that contribute flavour to fresh foods are the salicylates, amines and glutamates. Manufacturers add preservatives, colouring and flavouring chemicals to food to enhance looks, taste and shelf life. Both FODMAP and food chemical triggers can impact gut symptoms, but food chemicals can also influence headaches, migraines, sleep, mood, brain fog, skin itch and rashes, to name some. Like FODMAPs an elimination diet and challenge protocol can be followed, or some just dabble with limiting foods categorized in the very high list.
