Low FODMAP Bread

Date Posted:26 November 2021 

If you have been recently diagnosed with fructose malabsorption there are easy ways to balance your diet and follow the protocol.  A low fodmap diet does not involve excluding many of the staples you have come to rely on. In most cases, you will find low fodmap food substitutes that are every bit as satisfying as your previous choices and a whole lot more nutritious. 

One thing we have observed with this diet' is different gastric responses to the fodmap friendly food guide. Some people are able to tolerate higher amounts of medium fodmap foods' others find even fodmap friendly foods may cause an upset stomach at times. Overall the evidence suggests this diet improves digestive health and relieves symptoms of IBS. 

One such staple is low fodmap bread. According to the Monash University Low Fodmap Diet Guide, the following bread are permitted on a low fodmap diet. 

  • Corn Bread (2 slices 70g)
  • Gluten-Free Bread (2 slices 64g)
  • Oat Sourdough (1 slice 26g) 
  • Spelt Sourdough (2 slices 52g)

Baking your own low fodmap bread is also an option using low fodmap ingredients. There are many low fodmap flours to choose from and adding seeds such as pumpkin, sesame or sunflower improves the fibre and nutritional content of the bread. If you're considering low fodmap sandwich fillings' preservative-free deli meats and sweet or savoury spreads are available as well as pickles and chutneys 

The secret to this diet is discovering all the healthy foods you can include rather than dwelling on the high fructose foods you need to remove. If you need more advice on the fructose friendly or low fodmap diet' talk to your doctor or qualified health care professionals for nutritional advice.
