ATLANTA, Feb. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ModifyHealth™, a nationwide provider of gut-friendly, fully-prepared, Low-FODMAP, and gluten-free meals has recently been recognized by Monash University as Low-FODMAP certified. This certification is awarded to products containing ingredients that are low in fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAP). Products that receive this certification are licensed to use the official Monash University Low-FODMAP Certified™ badge – making it easier for consumers to identify products that are low in FODMAPs. Recommended by GI providers and dietitians, ModifyHealth's meals are clinically tailored to bring relief to specific GI conditions.
An estimated 20 – 25% of the U.S. population struggles with GI disorders in which dietary modification is a recommended treatment. Studies have shown that following the Low-FODMAP protocol brings relief in up to 75% of patients with IBS. While effective, patients often find implementation of the protocol challenging and time prohibitive to complete on their own. ModifyHealth makes it simple and ensures optimal outcomes with tailored meals and GI trained dietitian support.
"Monash University is the birthplace of the Low-FODMAP protocol and known internationally as leading experts in IBS research. Achieving Monash University Low-FODMAP certification gives patients, dietitians, and other healthcare providers assurance that our meals meet the guidelines to help make the FODMAP journey simple and effective" says Christine Lothen-Kline, MPH, MCHES, RD, LD, Dietitian Director for ModifyHealth.
ModifyHealth's recipes have been developed by award-winning chefs under the direction of expert Low-FODMAP dietitian, speaker and author, Patsy Catsos, MS, RDN, LD to ensure all recipes adhere to evidence-based FODMAP guidelines and thresholds while maintaining appropriate nutritional values.
"Patient success is our priority," says GB Pratt, Founder & CEO of ModifyHealth. "Beyond delivering Low-FODMAP meals, we are passionate about ensuring positive outcomes by helping patients properly follow a Low-FODMAP protocol. We're honored to have earned Monash University's certification and view this as an important step in our mission to make food as medicine simple and effective."
