Hi all,This is my first post and I am very new to dealing with my ISB symptoms etc. I saw a tv programme today which highlighted low fodmap foods, which interested me as I had never heard of them and it seems that a great deal of my diet has been high fodmap foods.My question is what alcohol is "okay" if I am going to try and follow a diet like this, I usually drink apple cider, pear perry, lager or wine.Any help would be appreciated.ThanksKarl

It's probably going to be helpful to you to cut out alcohol during the elimination phase of the diet, the first 2 weeks. The book I'm reading about FODMAPS diet saws that red and white wine, 4 oz is okay and vodka, gin, and whiskey. Make sure to read up on it before starting the diet, good luck.

yes, Apple, Pear, and Lager (Barley Malt) are all high FODMAP and should be avoided.
