Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and FODMAPs
IBS is a common gastrointestinal disorder that can be triggered by certain foods, including those high in FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols). Many plant-based proteins are low in FODMAPs, making them a suitable option for those with IBS. Pea protein, the primary ingredient in Roam Protein, is low in FODMAPs, making it an excellent choice for those looking to manage IBS symptoms.
If you're dealing with gastrointestinal issues, consider the following science-backed advice:
- Trial and Error: Start with a single serving of a plant-based protein like Roam Protein (our 3-serve packs are great for to use as a trial) and monitor for any adverse effects.
- Check Ingredients: Always read the ingredient list to ensure the product doesn't contain any irritants or allergens.
- Consult a Healthcare Provider: Before making significant changes to your diet, it's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare provider, especially if you have pre-existing conditions.
