If you suffer from occasional bouts of bloating, belching, discomfort or even diarrhea following meals, you may be sensitive to common sugars that easily ferment in the digestive system. These sugars are referred to as FODMAPs. The simplest solution would be to eliminate these foods from your diet, but any type of elimination diet can be difficult. In fact, completely eliminating FODMAPs is likely impossible, or at least improbable to accomplish while maintaining a well-balanced diet. FODMAPs are typically found in some of the most nutritious fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. Fortunately, FODMAP DPE was created to eliminate the worry of whether or not a meal may result in distress.

FODMAP DPE (Digestive Probiotics and Enzymes) is a blend of specialized enzymes and spore-forming probiotics that assists the body in properly digesting highly fermentable foods, commonly known as FODMAPs.

Garlic is back in my life!

I love garlic, but I haven't been able to enjoy it for the last couple of years. Gave this a try and its like I've never had the issue. Highly recommend

What a treat to be able to eat foods with fructan in them!

This product makes my life so much easier and better. Especially when I travel, it is so much easier to have these pills instead of 4 different kinds, and even then still not be able to eat anything with fructan in it. Also, I take your pills when I do not know what is in when I am eating. It is such a pleasure now to be able to eat foods anywhere that have fructan in them, like pears, apples, onions, and garlic. It is possible that I may have felt a little bit sick to my stomach once or twice after eating onions or garlic, after taking this product, but it is minor.

I can eat foods that were forbidden

I have had IBS for years. I was always fearing food. Couldn't eat normal foods like garlic and onion for example. Tried a more expensive version and found this product. Much less cost wise and get more product. It really really takes the stress of eating and being around other people. Had to know where the bathroom s were all the time. Thank you

Loving FODMAP DPE by Andrew Arthur medical

I had been struggling with IBS for years before I found a good dietitian who recommended I try Fodmate. Then the price of FodMate skyrocketed, so I looked into FODmap DPE by Andrew Arthur medical. It has been really effective and combined with a new GERD medicine, I'm able to eat favorite things like onions and mushrooms and garlic. It took months to get here, but it's really nice to be here.

Ingredients

Alpha Galactosidase

The primary enzyme used in popular gas-relief products, alpha galactosidase is an enzyme responsible for breaking down complex sugars into simple sugars. This allows certain gas-producing foods such as cruciferous vegetables and legumes to become more easily digestible. This enzyme is important for Oligosaccharides, the “O” in FODMAPs.

Amylase

An enzyme which partially breaks starch down into maltose. Amylase is naturally excreted from the pancreas and saliva. This enzyme is important for Monosaccharides, the “M” in FODMAPs.

Glucoamylase

Converts starch into sugar like amylase, but is most active in a highly acidic pH. The inclusion of this component allows for many sugars to be broken down prior to exiting the stomach. This enzyme is important for Monosaccharides, the “M” in FODMAPs.

Lactase

The enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of the milk sugar lactose into glucose and galactose. This enzyme is important for disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.

Cellulase

An enzyme that digests cellulose, or plant fiber. Most animals (including humans) do not produce cellulase naturally and are therefore unable to use most of the energy contained in plant material without supplementation of the enzyme.

Xylanase

An enzyme with the ability to digest the polysaccharide xylan into xylose, which is a primary component of plant cell walls. There is some evidence that xylanase can help support the breakdown of certain artificial sweeteners and preservatives. 

Hemicellulase

Breaks down hemicellulose, a type of polysaccharide that is more complex than simple sugar and present along with cellulose in all plant cell walls.

Pectinase

Breaks down pectin which is a robust component of plant cell walls. Pectin itself is not a FODMAP, but it is found in many high-FODMAP foods and is fermentable. This enzyme helps break down fermentable foods, the “F” that may not otherwise be classified as high-FODMAP foods. 

Diastase

Breaks down starch into smaller sugar molecules known as maltose and glucose. This enzyme helps support the digestion of both mono and disaccharides, the “D” and “M” of FODMAP. 

Maltase

Breaks down maltose into glucose, which is required for the body to be able to utilize the sugar as energy. This enzyme is important for Disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.

Invertase

Also known as sucrase, is an enzyme that breaks down sucrose (a disaccharide) into its glucose and fructose building blocks. This enzyme is important for Disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.

Beta Glucanase

Breaks down glycosidic bonds, which is essentially a bond that holds a molecule of sugar to a molecule of another carbohydrate. This enzyme is important for Disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.

FODMAP Probiotic Blend

A blend of two powerful spore-based probiotics that can assist in balancing and restoring a healthy microbiome. Although there aren’t any digestive enzymes that directly break down polyols, the “P” in FODMAPs which are primainly contained in “Sugar Free” products, many FODMAP sufferers have gut microbiome imbalances that may contribute to Polyol intolerance. The combination of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus clausii can help restore gut balance and support regularity by protecting against occasional constipation and diarrhea.

Suggested Use

Directions: Take FODMAP DPE with 8 oz of water at the beginning of each FODMAP containing meal, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Additional capsules may be taken for larger meals or during periods of occasional discomfort.* 

Daily Maintenance: 1 to 2 capsules per meal.

FAQs

What is FODMAP DPE?

FODMAP DPE is a combination of probiotics and enzymes formulated to assist those with sensitivities to specific carbohydrates that easily ferment causing digestive distress. These foods are classified as FODMAPs. 

How does FODMAP DPE differ from other enzyme products?

FODMAP DPE was formulated with the specific purpose of breaking down fermentable carbohydrates, while also restoring the gut microbiome. This entire formula is geared towards these troublesome foods and does not break down protein or fat. 

Is FODMAP DPE helpful for gluten sensitivity?

The answer to this question really is “it depends”. Wheat is one of the most troublesome FODMAP foods, however it is only the carbohydrates found in wheat that are classified as FODMAPs. Gluten is a protein in wheat, and will not be digested by the enzymes within FODMAP DPE. We have found that many people whom suffer from gluten sensitivity are also intolerant to the carbohydrates found in wheat. If gluten is your sole issue, we recommend Devigest, but if you believe that you may also struggle with the FODMAP components within wheat, then we would suggest trying both Devigest and FODMAP DPE with wheat containing meals.

What are digestive enzymes?

Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts in biochemical reactions. Every enzyme has a specific reactant known as a substrate, which can be thought of like a lock and key. FODMAP DPE contains several enzymes or “keys” that can “unlock” (or break down) many of the food types that are common in our diet. The enzymes in FODMAP DPE are specific to the digestion of specific carbohydrates/sugars found in high-FODMAP foods. 

How do I know if digestive enzymes will help me?

While certain individuals with severe intolerances may not benefit from the use of digestive enzymes, a large percentage of those with FODMAP sensitivities will experience relief from common digestive complaints. If you have ever undergone an elimination diet and found specific foods that tend to create gastrointestinal distress, adding FODMAP DPE may allow you to enjoy those foods once again. 

How does FODMAP DPE work?

FODMAP DPE is an enzyme blend that allows for more complete digestion and less digestive fermentation of specific carbohydrates known as FODMAPs (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols). 

When is the best time to take FODMAP DPE?

Take FODMAP DPE immediately prior to eating, or with your first bite. FODMAP DPE can also be taken after meals to alleviate digestive complications such as occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion specific to FODMAP foods.

Can I take FODMAP DPE with other supplements?

FODMAP DPE can be used safely with all other dietary supplements.

How long does it take for FODMAP DPE to work?

When taking the product with troublesome foods, the product should immediately help alleviate the onset of symptoms.

Is FODMAP DPE Kosher?

The formula is Kosher, and a copy of the certification is available by request.

Is FODMAP DPE vegetarian or vegan?

The FODMAP DPE formula is vegan in accordance with the guidelines of the AMERICAN VEGETARIAN ASSOCIATION.

Is FODMAP DPE non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)?

Yes, FODMAP DPE is non-GMO. The ingredients contained in and used to produce this formula are not genetically engineered organisms according to the NATIONAL ORGANIC STANDARDS BOARD.
