Award Winning
New Product Award - awarded to SOME Foods in 2015 SA Food Industry Awards

There are moments in life when something amazing happens and you can't quite believe that is has.

We had one of those moments on Friday night when SOME Foods received the New Product Award at the South Australian Food Industry Awards gala dinner.


Prebiotics vs Probiotics

Digestive health is only really starting to be better understood by experts in their fields, so we are attempting to gain a better understanding ourselves as we know there isn’t a single formula or one size fits all approach to IBS management and health management in general.

Today we’re tackling prebiotics and probiotics.


Other IBS Triggers

IBS management isn’t just about a single approach - rather, the management strategy needs to include a combination of lifestyle changes including; regular exercise, stress reduction, eating at regular times, finding the right level of fibre intake, drinking plenty of water and of course removing known trigger foods from your diet.


Reason to Celebrate

Today is our 19th wedding anniversary. It’s an occasion we celebrate with devotion and we go out of our way to make it as special as we possibly can for each other. This year we’ve spent the day cooking a beautiful meal together, enjoying each other’s company and reflecting on the year that’s been. 

And what a year it’s been.


Focus on what you CAN eat

It can be challenging eating out at either a friend’s house or a restaurant when eating a low FODMAP diet - particularly if you’re in the elimination phase of the diet.

Rather than having your host or chef be left wondering what in the world they can possibly feed you, let them know which foods you CAN eat - that will give them confidence that your meal will be eaten and enjoyed by you, and should trigger plenty of menu inspirations for them.


It Isn't Just a Fad

It’s encouraging to see the FODMAP research undertaken by the team at Monash University being recognised internationally. 

Publication of the trial outcomes and editorial acknowledging the benefits of the diet in such a prestigious journal encourages us further that this isn’t just a fad approach to IBS treatment...
