Gluten Free is not FODMAP free

Pure gluten is not a FODMAP.  Pure gluten is a protein.  Most people consume gluten through wheat, barley and rye.  These grains can cause the bloating and other symptoms associated with IBS (apart from Celiac, which is a wheat allergy),  because they contain fructans, one of the FODMAP carbohydrates.

There is also a difference between FODMAP and non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS).  NCGS’ers are likely to have an adverse reaction to pure gluten.

FODMAP dieters tend to look for gluten-free foods because it is a convenient way to eliminate many of their symptom triggers.  However, gluten-free is not necessarily FODMAP-free.  Be sure to carefully review all ingredients to be certain you avoid FODMAPs.

    Celiac disease is not a wheat allergy.

    People with celiac disease have an autoimmune reaction (not an allergic reaction) in the presence of gluten, which is present in wheat, as well as rye and barley.

    It is possible for someone with celiac disease to also have a wheat allergy. But they are separate and different things.


      Thanks for the clarification!

    My Dr. recommended that I go gluten-free along with the FODMAP.


      The best way to know what triggers your symptoms is to keep a food log. It is frequently recommended that patients try an elimination diet for 30 days and then add the “can’t live without” foods, one at a time, tracking any symptom. This way you can devise a clear picture of what you can eat and what you need to avoid.
