What are FODMAPS?

FODMAP is an acronym describing the collection of short chain carbohydrates and sugar alcohols found in foods naturally or as food additives; 

Fermentable – referring to the bacterial break down (fermentation) of the FODMAP sugars

Oligo-saccharides – oligo means few and saccharide means sugar. These are chains of sugars and include fructans and galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS).

Disaccharide – a double sugar, in particular, lactose

Monosaccharide – a single sugar, in particular, fructose. However, fructose is only potentially malabsorbed if it is present in foods in amounts greater than glucose.


Polyols – sugar alcohols, including sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, and maltitol.
