The low FODMAP diet has been described, evaluated and found efficacious for the treatment of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) primarily in Western countries. The aim of this review was to address the applicability of this diet to South Asia. The high prevalence of IBS in South Asia and its associated effects of quality of life and economics warrants the introduction of efficacious therapies. The considerable heterogeneity of dietary patterns and methods of food preparation across South Asian countries and a paucity of food analysis limit precision in defining foods that are high or low in FODMAPs...

A growing number of plant-based milk substitutes have become commercially available, providing an array of options for consumers with dietary restrictions. Though several of these products rival cow's milk in terms of their nutritional profiles, beverages prepared with soy and tree nuts can be a significant concern to consumers because of potential contamination with food allergens. Adding to this concern is the fact that allergen residues from plant-based beverages are modified during manufacturing, thereby decreasing the sensitivity of antibody-based detection methods...
