There really seems to be something to these FODMAPS. The main value of this book was that it allowed me see some of the other aspects of food that may be affecting my bowel condition (IBD-Ulcerative Colitis). After reading this book, I started to question the role bacteria were playing in my gut; this led me to get a Bacterial Overgrowth test (normally only for IBS), which turned out to be positive and is now being treated to help deal with my colitis flare.
I mainly bought the book in the first place because it said it had food and grocery shopping lists, which it does, but they are not very elaborate lists, just basics- while there are just so many foods out there that one would need FODMAP info on. I actually obtained more FODMAP info for various foods just searching online and compiling my own spreadsheet for Raffinose, Lactose, Fructose, Sorbitol, Starches, Sulfur,Inulin/FOS, Caffeine, Soluble/Insoluble fiber, etc.
Overall I'm glad I bought this book because it contains more and useful information regarding what I think is becoming more and more of a problem for people across the globe- food intolerance due to consuming too many non-natural, lab created, modified, etc, food ingredients and preservatives.
I did enjoy the brief chapter that clearly explained what each of the FODMAPs were, and how fructans comprise both fructo-oligiosaccharides and inulins (the relationships had been muddy in my mind). The author also seems to (as of October 2011) respond to some questions on her Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as comments left on the previously-mentioned blog. 2 stars for information and 1 star for effort.
If you are wondering why wheat (or fruit, or honey, or onions or . . . ) makes you feel bad one day, but not the next, and are beginning to think it is all in your head, try this book. Very practical and informative.
