At FODMAP Friendly, it’s very important we are up to date with cutting edge low FODMAP dietary research. Eating and shopping with confidence just got that little bit easier for us rye bread-eating FODMAPpers!
In September 2016, Finnish research studied 87 IBS patients who received either regular rye bread or low-FODMAP rye bread for 4 weeks. The researchers wanted to know if rye bread low in FODMAPs would be better tolerated than regular rye bread in the IBS patients.
During study periods, dietary fibre intake increased compared to baseline. Many signs of IBS i.e. abdominal pain, flatulence, stomach rumbling and cramps were milder when participants consumed the low-FODMAP rye bread. Measured hydrogen breath test values were significantly lower during the low-FODMAP bread period.
Low-FODMAP rye bread may help IBS patients to control their IBS symptoms and reduce gastrointestinal gas production. Replacing regular rye bread by low-FODMAP bread may be a practical step in conjunction with concomitant broader dietary FODMAP manipulations in order to improve overall quality of life for IBS patients.
Nonetheless, inclusion of dietary low-FODMAP rye bread may be a useful strategy by which IBS patients can increase their dietary fibre intake.
