People looking for “low-FODMAP” salsa, granola, or flatbread need only search on Amazon, which offers a few hundred packaged foods promoted to relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Shopping at the grocery store and uncertain whether it’s safe to eat apples, cashews, or spinach on the low-FODMAP diet? There’s a smartphone app that warns against apples and cashews but gives spinach an OK. For those who want information about the diet, YouTube delivers 903 000 results, while Instagram offers 1.5 million.
