Regular Girl is a Monash University Low FODMAP Certified™ product. FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Disaccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) are a group of dietary sugars which are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. They are known to cause gas related pain, intestinal distention and constipation and/or diarrhea in people suffering from functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Low FODMAP diets help to reduce these symptoms.
Because many high-fiber foods are also high in FODMAPs, people with FGID and IBS typically have difficulty meeting the recommended daily intake of 25 to 30 grams of fiber in their diets. That means they may not get enough soluble fiber which is essential for gut health and regularity. Even more problematic, many of the dietary fiber supplements containing inulin, wheat dextrin and IMOs are high FODMAP fibers and should be avoided by those looking to reduce FODMAPs in their diet.
Regular Girl is proud to be the first prebiotic fiber and probiotic blend to achieve this important certification.
