Welcome

Welcome and thanks for stopping by.

I’m Natalie Nott and Low FODMAP.com is where I hope to offer some inspiration to other cooks following a low FODMAP diet in an effort to control symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

So, “What are FODMAPs?”, I hear you ask.  Simply put, FODMAPs are a group of sugars  found in a wide variety of foods.  These include fructose, lactose, sorbitol, mannitol, fructans and galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS).  When these sugars are poorly absorbed symptoms of IBS can occur.  These symptoms are commonly diarrhea, constipation, bloating, flatulence, nausea and abdominal pain.

I’d like to say from the get-go that I am not a doctor nor a dietitian.  If you are experiencing any of the above mentioned symptoms, please seek advice from a professional.

About 4 years ago, after many years of struggling with IBS, I was diagnosed with fructose and lactose malabsorption.  This began my journey into the world of recipe writing, culminating in The low FODMAP cookbook and Low FODMAP.com.

I do hope you enjoy your visit here and don’t forget to leave me a comment – I’d love to hear from you.

Nat :)

  1. Hi there,

    Your recipes look fantastic and I am going to buy your cookbook. If nothing else this condition FM has made me cook lots of different foods, and I am looking forward to cooking yours.

  2. Hi Nat!

    I’m so thrilled that I found your site through your Taste.com.au article about spelt. I have been really struggling recently with getting foods that I like, that are satisfying, healthy and easy. We are doing a renovation at the moment which doesn’t help as we have a very limited kitchen. I am excited to read your cook book too, I’ve just bought it. Thank you so much for the blog, subscribing now! :)

  3. Hi Natalie,

    I bought your book about 3 months ago, suggested by my Nutritionist.
    It is absolutely wonderful.
    The Banana Pecan cake is everybodys favourite in the house, absolutely beautiful. I took one to the family for Fathers Day, the family had more than 1 piece each…lol.
    Keep up the good work lovely lady, the homemade food is so much better than any bought stuff.

    Thank-you Thank-you Thank-you
