Monash FODMAP certified dietitian
What are FODMAPs?
FODMAPs are fermentable sugars and carbohydrates that are not properly digested, leading to the umbrella of symptoms common to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  

The low FODMAP diet is proven in clinical trials - and real life - to reduce digestive symptoms in about 70% of those with IBS. The goal with a low FODMAP diet is to reduce severity and frequency of digestive symptoms, as well as define trigger foods.  

FODMAP is an acronym that stands for the chemical names of the sugars and carbohydrates within the foods common to this diet: 

F        fermentable 
O       oligosaccharide
D       disaccharide
M       mono-saccharide
P        polyols
Our FODMAP Approach 
Nicole and Shannon are well-versed in guiding clients through a personalized approach to the low FODMAP diet. They find starting with a strict FODMAP elimination diet this is not always the most practical or necessary approach to find relief from digestive symptoms. Each client's first steps with the FODMAP diet are discussed during their initial appointment taking into account symptom severity, food preferences, cooking preferences, and lifestyle.  

Shannon has completed Monash University's low FODMAP diet training designed for dietitians. She has also followed an adapted low FODMAP diet herself.

With clients, Nicole and Shannon integrate the most recent research with the practical skills they've learnt from navigating reduced FODMAPs in their own kitchens for recipe testing for our incredible clients.  

Resources & Recipes
The research behind the use of the low FODMAP diet started at Monash University in Australia - an excellent resource for reliable resources​, recipes and information about FODMAPs.
