It also includes a list of foods that are known to aggravate IBS and a detailed list of food items that are regarded by experts as safe alternatives, also known as the Foodmap Diet. The book features more than 100 recipes (with accompanying nutritional analysis) that have been specially created to help manage IBS, including vegan and vegetarian selections.
