Fria Fodmap Friendly - Fria

Fria’s FODMAP Friendly range

Several of our products are now FODMAP Friendly certified. This means they contain low levels of FODMAPs and can be used to treat IBS in consultation with a dietitian.

What is FODMAP?

FODMAP is a diet treatment that can be used for IBS and is recommended in consultation with a dietitian. FODMAPs (fermentable oligo-, di-, and monosaccharides and polyols) are short-chain carbohydrates. For people with IBS, these are poorly absorbed in the small intestine, which means they can ferment in the large intestine, affecting the fluid balance and causing gases to form. This in turn can cause stomach problems and classic IBS symptoms.

FODMAPs are divided into four categories:

Monosaccharides, such as fructose: fruit sugar found in certain fruits and vegetables like mango and in honey.

Disaccharides, such as lactose: milk sugar found in dairy products from cows, sheep, and goats.

Oligosaccharides: dietary fibre found in peas, beans, lentils, onions, garlic, wheat, barley, rye, beetroot, and artichoke.

Polyols: sweeteners in chewing gum and throat lozenges, which are also found naturally in avocados and mushrooms.

What does FODMAP Friendly certification mean?

The FODMAP diet was originally developed at Monash University in Australia. One of the founders of the treatment then established FODMAP Friendly, which is an Australian company. FODMAP Friendly is a globally registered certification label designed so that people with IBS, who follow a low-FODMAP diet, can easily identify products that are suited to the diet. FODMAP Friendly has analysed our products and given us the certification.

This means that our products are certified according to FODMAP Friendly following analysis for fructose, oligosaccharides, polyols, and lactose. Products that have passed the analysis requirements for low FODMAP content may be labelled with the FODMAP Friendly logo.  The label applies to standard portions of the products, which in our case means one slice of bread or a bun, a muffin, or a pastry.

Of course, several dietary factors in addition to FODMAP can affect the stomach and intestines, such as meal order, portion size, fibre content, sugar content, and fat content. We therefore recommend following the FODMAP diet in consultation with a dietitian.
