Background and aim: reduced intake of fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides,monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAPs) is useful to treat functional gastrointestinaldisorders. However, there is no consensus on which foods should be included in theFODMAP list as FODMAP profile characterization is lacking for many different foods.This study aimed to emphasize the need for a unified FODMAP list to prevent patientconfusion. We hypothesized that FODMAP lists do not include all products that maycontain high levels of FODMAPs.Methods: PubMed, ScienceDirect, Scielo, and Cochrane were searched to identify foodcomposition tables, reviews, food analysis publications, laboratory analyses, andclinical trials containing FODMAP lists.Results: of 1,308 articles identified, 10 were selected; 22.6 % of the 204 foods listedwere classified differently among studies. This included almonds, avocados, banana,broccoli, soft cheese, eggplant, and walnuts. Nutritional guidance may be taken fromexisting FODMAP-related literature, but the information given is not always consistent.Conclusion: Unvarying lists of low FODMAP foods should be compiled to providepatients with accurate information on FODMAP dieting.
