Dr. Reich's FODMAP conscious delicacies for gourmets with sensitivities
Like 14 million other Germans, Dr. Reich's family is also affected by the widespread new health problem of food intolerance. After a diagnosis marathon spanning a number of years, two members of Dr. Reich's family were finally given a name for their symptoms: irritable bowel syndrome. Experts estimate that 16.6 per cent of Germans suffer from this condition.
In eight out of ten cases a FODMAP conscious lifestyle leads to an improvement in symptoms. The “Low FODMAP” concept is very complicated, however. To make things easier for Dr. Reich's family members and for other sufferers Dr. Reich's family develops FODMAP conscious organic food specialities.
Organic vegan delicacies that are free from gluten, lactose, onions, garlic, apples, dates and pulses. Dr. Reich’s FODMAP conscious products are also low in fructose. 100 percent natural. No additives and no sugar added.
In short Dr. Reich's organic delicacies contain only a few fermentable, short-chain carbohydrates and sugar alcohols, and are thus well tolerated.
The term FODMAP is an acronym, derived from "Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols". FODMAPs include fructose (when in excess of glucose), fructans, galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), lactose and polyols (eg. sorbitol and mannitol).
