FODMAPS, Gluten and Beyond
Food intolerance and gastrointestinal symptoms
Through its sponsorship of the inaugural Gastrodiet Conference (held in Prato (Italy) in November 2015, Nestlé Health Science showed its support for the spread of scientific and clinical know how about the role of the Low FODMAP diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), a condition that can impact up to 1 in 8 people. Based upon an approach that limits the intake of dietary sugars capable of distending the bowel and triggering a range of symptoms, The Low Fodmap Diet was established by Monash University in Australia in 2005. It's increasingly being adopted worldwide. In this first of its kind event, leading scientists and dietitians in the field shared knowledge breakthroughs and best practices, the essence of which are discussed in this video report.
