Arise® 5000 provides functional benefits to a wide range of bakery and other flour-based food products.
Arise® 5000 also has achieved low FODMAP certification from Monash University and supports the low FODMAP diet.
Low FODMAP Certified
The Low FODMAP Certification is administered by Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where scientists pioneered the early research and clinical studies on short-chain carbohydrates that comprise FODMAP.
FODMAP constitutes a group of nondigestible short-chain carbohydrates, stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols.
Those nondigestible, rapidly fermentable short-chain carbohydrates are comprised of fructans, galacto-oligosaccharides, lactose, fructose, sorbitol and mannitol among others. Consumption of a high FODMAP food increases the fermentable load and volume of liquid in the colon resulting from poor absorption of the short-chain carbohydrates in the small intestine causing rapid fermentation by gut microbiota and osmotic action in the colon.
A low FODMAP food is highly desirable to help manage symptoms that can arise from consumption of high FODMAP food such as recurring episodes of abdominal pain, bloating (distension), flatulence and change in bowel habits (diarrhea, constipation or both), especially for sensitive individuals and people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease.
