  • 45 Hillman Road Wisconsin Dells, WI 53913 US

75 minute talk presented by Patsy Catsos at the Wisconsin Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics 2016 Annual Conference. 

This session will introduce you to an evidence-based dietary approach to nutrition therapy for IBS, the FODMAP elimination diet. No matter what your practice setting, you need to know the basics of this novel approach, which is capable of helping up to 75% of people with IBS achieve adequate and sustained relief of symptoms. This diet originated in Australia; it is becoming widely known and practiced in the U.S. Consumers are asking for low FODMAP foods and there is significant demand for dietitians knowledgeable in the delivery of the diet. Learn how to help your patients plan a FODMAP elimination diet, identify high and low FODMAP foods and modify recipes for flavor without FODMAPs. FODMAPs are certain short- chain, rapidly fermentable, osmotically active, dietary carbohydrates.
