Gas and Pain Free Nutrition Bar For Those With IBS - The Healthelicious Low FODMAPs Bar

  • About the Low FODMAPs Bar

    I was at an Expo mid-2016 when somebody was looking at my bars, reading the ingredients. Which I absolutely LOVE people doing as the more they know, the better they like my products.

    But this lass was a bit down in the mouth. My standard bars, whilest being great nutritionally, had some ingredients not good for the diet she was on.

    Turns out she has irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a common functional gastrointestinal disorder affecting one in seven Australian adults.

    Apparently researchers at Monash University in Melbourne identified a group of suspect carbohydrates and did some tests. Current research strongly suggests that this group of carbohydrates contributes to IBS/FGID symptoms and eradicating them from the diet reduces the symptoms.

    Hence a bar that does not contain ingredients high in FODMAPs can be a great time and pain saver! For some more info on the subject, here is a link:

    Now for those of us to whom FODMAP is a new term, it is an acronym that stands for:


    FO = Fermentable Oligosaccharides (Oligosaccharides are one of the components of fibre, found in plants. FOS and inulin are found naturally in Jerusalem artichoke, burdock, chicory, leeks, onions, and asparagus. FOS products derived from chicory root contain significant quantities of inulin, a fiber also widely distributed in fruits, vegetables and plants.)

    D = Disaccharides (A disaccharide is a sugar composed of two monosaccharides formed when two sugars are joined together and a molecule of water is removed. Disaccharides are soluble in water. Three common examples are sucrose, lactose, and maltose. For example, milk sugar (lactose) is made from glucose and galactose whereas cane sugar (sucrose) is made from glucose and fructose.)

    M = Monosaccharides (A class of sugars (e.g. glucose) that cannot be hydrolysed to give a simpler sugar so they are the simplest form of sugar and are usually colorless, water-soluble, and crystalline solids. Some monosaccharides have a sweet taste. Examples of monosaccharides include glucose (dextrose), fructose (levulose) and galactose.

    A = And

    P = Polyols (Polyols are sugar-free sweeteners: Erythritol, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates, Isomalt, Lactitol, Maltitol, Mannitol, Sorbitol and Xylitol. Polyols are carbohydrates but they are not sugars. They are used cup-for-cup [volume-for-volume] in recipes in the same amount as sugar is used, unlike acesulfame potassium, aspartame, saccharin, and sucralose which are used in very small amounts.

    For the one in 7 people with more sensitive digestive systems, FODMAPs are poorly absorbed in the small intestine and reach the large intestine where they produce gas and attract water.

    I tweaked the recipe to deliver a high nutrition bar that satisfies a wide range of nutrient requirements. In fact 25 per cent or more of 24 vitamins and minerals!

    Each bar weighs 56 grams.
