Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) was previously left poorly treated despite its high prevalence and cost. Over the past decade, significant research has been conducted providing new dietary strategies for IBS management. The ‘low fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols diet’ has shown symptom improvement in 68–76% of patients. Randomized, controlled trials have now proven its efficacy. The diet, low in poorly absorbed and fermentable carbohydrates, uses dietary…

TLDR
A low FODMAP diet can decrease the delivery of readily fermentable substrates to the small intestine and colon, thereby improving functional gastrointestinal symptoms.

Efficacy of the low FODMAP diet for treating irritable bowel syndrome: the evidence to date
TLDR
Evidence to date strongly supports the efficacy of a low FODMAP diet in the treatment of IBS, with up to 86% of patients with IBS finding improvement in overall gastrointestinal symptoms as well as individual symptoms following the diet.
Effects of Low-FODMAPS Diet on Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms and Gut Microbiome
TLDR
Low FODMAPs appear to reduce gastrointestinal symptoms for a least a subset of patients with IBS, however, due to the heterogeneity of reviewed studies, the influence on patients' gut microbiome composition and/or microbiota metabolites requires additional studies.
Food components and irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
It is important to understand the various dietary approaches, their putative mechanisms, the evidence that supports their use, and the benefits or harm they might produce to determine the efficacy of different dietary approaches and the place of specific strategies.
The Role of Low FODMAP Diet in the Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
This study provides high-quality evidence for the efficacy of a low FODMAP diet in the management of IBS and supports its use as a first-line IBS therapy.

TLDR
FODMAPs increase small intestinal water volume and colonic gas production, with secondary effects on small and large intestine motility, which may lead to symptoms of IBS, especially in those with visceral hypersensitivity and/or gastrointestinal motility abnormalities.
Increasing Symptoms in Irritable Bowel Symptoms With Ingestion of Galacto-Oligosaccharides Are Mitigated by α-Galactosidase Treatment
TLDR
Oral α-galactosidase taken with high G OS foods provides a clinically significant reduction in symptoms in GOS-sensitive individuals with IBS, and this strategy can be translated into practice to improve tolerance to high GOS foods as an adjunct therapy to the low FODMAP diet.

TLDR
An overview of the low FODMAP diet is provided and the importance of this and how this should be considered in the clinical management of IBS is discussed; a clinical management flowchart is provided to assist nutrition professionals in the use of this approach.
Fermentable carbohydrate restriction reduces luminal bifidobacteria and gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
This randomized controlled trial demonstrated a reduction in concentration and proportion of luminal bifidobacteria after 4 wk of fermentable carbohydrate restriction, effective in managing IBS symptoms.
Short-Chain Carbohydrates and Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders
TLDR
There is now an accumulating body of evidence that supports the notion that FODMAPs trigger gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with functional bowel disorders, and that a diet low in FodMAPs offers considerable symptom relief in the majority of patients who use it.
A diet low in FODMAPs reduces symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
In a controlled, cross-over study of patients with IBS, a diet low in FODMAPs effectively reduced functional gastrointestinal symptoms and high-quality evidence supports its use as a first-line therapy.

TLDR
It is concluded from this review that "nondigestible fructo-oligosaccharides," even though they are not included in the carbohydrate fraction that is quantified as dietary fiber by classic analytical methods, have most of the physiological effects of a dietary fiber.

TLDR
Increased and discordant absorption of mannitol and sorbitol occurs in patients with IBS compared to that in healthy controls, suggesting that the dietary restriction of polyols may be efficacious.
Diet in irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
Individual dietary guidance for intake of poor FODMAPs and insoluble fibres diet in combination with probiotics intake and regular exercise is to be recommended for IBS patients.
Fructose-induced symptoms beyond malabsorption in FGID
TLDR
Until the authors have further mechanistic insight, restricting dietary fructose intake and other poorly absorbed short-chain carbohydrates and polyols remains an efficacious approach for managing functional gastrointestinal symptoms.
Not all effects of a gluten-free diet are due to removal of gluten.
TLDR
This study adds data to unsolved questions of nonceliac gluten sensitivity and provides support for a GFD in IBS-D patients, and raises several concerns, including the discordant result observed in the present authors’ study.
