#fodmapchat many probiotic formulas contain prebiotics. Most of the added prebiotics are FODMAPs eg FOS or inulinDr Jaci Barrett
Q1 Why should whole foods be the focus of the low FODMAP diet vs. food products? #fodmapchatKate Scarlata, RD
A1 So many additives added to commercial food products so don’t go overboard and choose more whole foods. #fodmapchatKate Scarlata, RD
A1 commercial corn syrups may have varying amounts of fructose so hard to determine #fodmap content for sure. #fodmapchatKate Scarlata, RD
On general principle I’d say; better source of nutrition in every way. #fodmapchatPatsy Catsos, MS, RD
#fodmapchat Q1 More processing a product has & longer the ingredient list, more likely it is to have a hidden FODMAP ingredientJess Biesiekierski
A1. It easy to tell what the "ingredients" are in whole foods:) #fodmapchatPatsy Catsos, MS, RD
#fodmapchat whole foods all the way! If I can’t read the name it’s not good for you and minimal ingredients are the way to go!Kristen Lucisano

Q5 What soy based products are low in FODMAPs? #fodmapchatKate Scarlata, RD
@DrJaciBarrett any opinion on presence of gliadin antibodies in stool to suggest NCGS? #fodmapchatMarsha Hudnall
#fodmapchat A4 So at the end of the day, there is some SMALL evidence for SOME IBS ppl going GF, but NCGS is complex & not well understoodJess Biesiekierski
#fodmapchat A5 Tofu = safe; Soy sauce = safeJess Biesiekierski

@JourneywithGP #fodmapchat Ginger is low FODMAPJess Biesiekierski
@mom2nic #fodmapchat Low FODMAP protein = eggs, quinoa, buckwheat, matured cheese, most nuts, seeds, seaweed, small serve canned legumesJess Biesiekierski

#fodmapchat you can "rechallenge" or "test tolerance"Dr Jaci Barrett
#fodmapchat A8 Remember each person has their own tolerance level for each FODMAP sugarJess Biesiekierski
A8 Remember when starting to re-challenge- choose food that contains only that fodmap that you are re-challenging.#fodmapchatKate Scarlata, RD
#fodmapchat "rechallenge" = formal reintroduction of foods high in a particular fodmap in moderate amounts over 3 consecutive daysDr Jaci Barrett
#fodmapchat I was told that psyllium husks were good if you had stomach cramps, bloating etc. Is this true for someone on #fodmaps?Leanne Shelton
#fodmapchat "test tolerance" = used when you know a fodmap is an issue but want to know if you can get away with small amounts.Dr Jaci Barrett
#fodmapchat "test tolerance" vs "rechallenge" depends on what the person wants to find out. Can they eat it at all or can they occasionally?Dr Jaci Barrett
#fodmapchat In rechallenging be careful of using foods that contain more than 1 FOdmap eg apples containing sorbitol and fructoseDr Jaci Barrett
