Bay Burdett is the Founder & CEO of Bay’s Kitchen. For years Bay suffered with debilitating IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) symptoms and was finally diagnosed with IBS and advised to follow a Low FODMAP Diet. The low FODMAP Diet requires you to eliminate foods high in FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols - or to put it more simply short-chained carbohydrates and sugar alcohols which are poorly digested in the gut), which can be naturally found in foods such as onion, garlic, lentils and wheat.
Bay soon realised there were few convenient, good tasting, Low FODMAP foods available in the UK and having found out that now that 20% of the world population are diagnosed with IBS, she knew she couldn't be the only one looking for the foods which don’t contain hard-to-digest ingredients. And so, Bay’s Kitchen was born!
