Dr Jockers Comments

This low FODMAP mashed sweet potato recipe tastes great and is fantastic for anyone who has major gut issues and is looking to follow a low-FODMAP diet to help get relief.  This is a tasty and satiating side dish recipe your family will enjoy!

FODMAP is an acronym for naturally occurring Fermentable Oligo, Di- and Monosaccharides and Polyols.  These include the short-chain carbohydrates such as glucose, fructose (present with excess glucose), galactans, polyols and lactose found widely in many healthy foods including cruciferous veggies, legumes and other veggies such as asparagus, onions and garlic.

For some individuals with digestive disorders, FODMAPS are not easily absorbed and are challenging on the bowels.  For individuals with bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine (SIBO) or generalized dysbiosis, they can cause significant bloating, cramping and gas. For more about a low-FODMAP diet read this article here.

I also recommend using specifically formulated enzymes to assist in the breakdown and processing of higher FODMAP foods.  FODMATE™ is an innovative enzyme formula designed for short-term use that can help support digestive health, including relief from occasional cramping, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation that may result from the consumption of high FODMAP foods.
