In my relentless search to try to figure out my issue a few years ago, after trying a bunch of different exclusion diets in addition to gluten-free (soy, corn, dairy, nightshade vegetables, refined sugars, etc) I tried FODMAPs. It was more difficult than any of the other diets only in the sense that keeping all of the rules in your head is pretty hard. But it actually gives some flexibility to those accustomed to a gluten-free diet. I spent a long time looking at what was available from my local grocer and putting together a plan. I've included a shopping list and a menu for starting the FODMAP diet, below. I live in the USA and have seen these products in many stores in different states so I think this may be helpful. It is only worth noting that I made this a while ago so it may be worth checking in case ingredients in anything have changed. I hope maybe this will help someone. 

 

Here is the most complete list I could assemble from trusted sources.

My suggestion is to print it out, highlight the ones that are a part of your regular diet, and put it somewhere you'll see when you're considering food (like on the fridge).

 

Examples of Terms:

 

Fermentable: The process through which gut bacteria degrade undigested carbohydrate to produce gases (hydrogen, methane and carbon dioxide).

 

Oligo-saccharides: Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) found in wheat, rye, onions and garlic, Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) found in legumes/pulses.

 

Di-saccharides: Lactose found in; milk, soft cheese, yogurts.

 

Mono-saccharides: Fructose (in excess of glucose) found in honey, apples, high fructose corn syrups.

 

Polyols: Sugar polyols (eg. sorbitol, mannitol) found in some fruit and vegetables and used as artificial sweeteners.

1-Lactose-free milk (Lactaid, skim)
4-Lactose-free yogurts
1-Bread (Udi's white sandwich)
2-Cheeses (hard cheeses aged 90+ days)
2-Deli Meats (Applegate Farms Organics, roasted turkey breast, uncured slow baked ham)

I checked the ingredients on every package, and followed the list above. (NOTE: This was in 2013(?) things may have changed, be sure to recheck ingredients.) I also determined that canola/rapeseed is okay, whereas honey and locust beans (as ingredients) are not. Almonds seem to be borderline.
