About FODMAP foods
Welcome to FODMAP Foods, where nourishing your body meets delighting your taste buds. We are a passionate team of individuals committed to making life easier for those navigating the challenges of IBS, SIBO, and other gut sensitivities.
Our Journey Begins
The roots of FODMAP Foods trace back to Dr.Steve's personal experiences. Growing up with a family member affected by IBS, he witnessed firsthand the impact it had on daily life. Fast forward to Dr. Steve's career as a family medicine physician—diagnosing patients with IBS highlighted a significant gap. There was a lack of convenient, delicious options for those adapting to the low FODMAP diet. This realization sparked the creation of FODMAP Foods, our mission-driven venture.

Real Stories, Real Impact
In the early days of our business, at a two-day expo aimed at getting the word out about our products, we had a memorable encounter. A dad and his son, about 9 or 10, stopped by on the first day. The dad shared that his son, recently diagnosed with IBS, had been avoiding food due to stomach issues. The boy tried our shakes, loved them, and left with a bag, excited to have a quick and tasty meal.
The next day, the duo returned with smiles. The parents expressed their joy that our shakes had become an easy and delicious solution for their son, allowing him to grab a food without hassle. Lynsie, reflecting on the experience, shared that seeing the boy's smile made the challenges of starting a business worthwhile.
Before we launched our business, Emily shared our products with her sister, who struggled with extreme gut sensitivities. Witnessing her sister's journey from discomfort to relief became a powerful testament to the efficacy of our shakes. Emily's sister, once confined by dietary restrictions, found a source of nourishment that didn't trigger her symptoms. Her success story reinforces our belief that everyone deserves access to convenient, delicious options that enhance their quality of life.
These real stories, including the transformative experiences of individuals like Emily's sister, inspire us daily. They fuel our commitment to providing not just a product but a pathway to a more comfortable and enjoyable life for those with IBS.

What makes our meal replacement products stand out? Simple—innovation and quality. Our shakes are plant-based, using top-notch rice and pea proteins. They're gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, and non-GMO, setting a new standard for dietary inclusivity. Just add water, and you've got a convenient, tasty shake. Plus, they can be mixed with warm water for a comforting hot chocolate vibe. It's our commitment to practicality and quality that defines FODMAP Foods.
