What's the idea behind the Modbiotic Food List?

Basically eating foods that contain simple sugars and avoiding foods that contain complex sugars. The Modbiotic diet protocol is an adaptation of the original Specific Carbohydrate diet founded in 1987. This adaption includes the involvement of polyphenol-rich foods added in addition to the protocol. 

Simple Sugars

Carbohydrates can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Simple sugars are also known as monosaccharide and include glucose (dextrose), fructose, galactose, ribose, and xylose.

Simple sugars can be absorbed quickly and easily and do not require enzymes to break down complex sugar molecules to allow them to be absorbed, this makes them easier to digest and utilize and less likely to ferment and feed intestinal organisms causing symptoms associated with digestive and behavioral disorders.
