Here you´ll find interesting facts about 2ab-wheat and lots of studies on the topic of wheat sensitivity in the context of modern wheat genotypes.



A diet with reduced content of fermentable short-chain carbohydrates (fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides, and polyols [FODMAPs]) has been reported to be effective in the treatment of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). However, there is no evidence of its superiority to traditional dietary advice for these patients. The authors compared the effects of a diet low in FODMAPs with traditional dietary advice in a randomized controlled trial of patients with IBS.

Nanayakkara et al. 2016 summarize the published clinical studies concerning the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) using restriction of Fermentable Oligosaccharide, Disaccharide, Monosaccharide, and Polyols in the diet (low FODMAP diet). In recent years, the data supporting low FODMAP diet for the management of IBS symptoms have emerged, including several randomized controlled trials, case-control studies, and other observational studies.

The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of a replacement diet with organic, semi-whole-grain products derived from Triticum turgidum subsp. turanicum (ancient) wheat on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms and inflammatory/biochemical parameters. A double-blinded randomised cross-over trial was performed using twenty participants (thirteen females and seven males, aged 18–59 years) classified as having moderate IBS.

Dietary intake of fermentable oligo-, di- and monosaccharides, and polyols (FODMAP) has previously been shown to aggravate the symptoms of the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), furthermore being associated with wheat sensitivity and a bread wheat-specific intolerance. To gain more knowledge about FODMAP in bread, FODMAP in whole grain flours and breads made of different varieties of bread wheat, spelt, durum, emmer, and einkorn were determined by high-performance anion exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC-PAD).
