In this episode I interview Steven J. Singer, an accomplished entrepreneur from Montreal, Canada.

Steven is the co-founder of the very famous Glutino Foods, America's premier gluten-free food company which he started from scratch in the late 1990’s and grew to a very successful business, soon becoming the leader in gluten-free products across North America. More recently, Steven founded another business, and this is what makes it very interesting for those who are on the low FODMAP diet just like me, because FODY Food Company is America's first low FODMAP food company. During this interview I have the pleasure of talking to Steven about why he decided to get into this new venture and how his products can help IBS sufferers to avoid those dreadful symptoms.
