Fodmix has worked extensively with the Fodmap Friendly Program to test and certify products as low FODMAP.
Before low FODMAP certified products were readily available, individuals with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) following a low FODMAP diet had to make almost everything from scratch, making it almost impossible to maintain the diet, even with its short duration. Mertlich’s hopes are to bring more low FODMAP foods to consumers at a higher level of ingredient quality and consideration.
“Stevia is used in almost every protein powder available today, even the few low FODMAP brands,” said Mertlich. “While many zero calorie sweeteners are low FODMAP, they can still cause digestive distress which is why I have chosen to use natural maple sugar, calories and nutrients included.”
