TOP 10: Low-FODMAP Recipes
The low-FODMAP diet is one of the newest food discoveries to promise relief to long-time sufferers of IBS. However, for many who’ve tried it, it’s much more than a fad; it’s a solution. At first, it can seem very technical and complicated, (FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides Disaccharides Monosaccharides And Polyols) since so many foods need to be avoided. But with proper guidance, you can find not only relief from IBS symptoms, but a renewed love of food. We’ve put together 10 of our favourite low-FODMAP recipes…and you won’t believe how delicious they are!
#10 – Allergen-Friendly Banana Bread
In the low-FODMAP diet, like in a gluten-free diet, wheat, barley, rye and triticale are eliminated, though for a different reason. Instead of seeking to cut out the gluten protein, as is done for Celiac Disease, the low-FODMAP diet minimises the sugars found in certain grains, which can lead to undesirable gastrointestinal symptoms. This is important to know since not all gluten-free food is automatically low-FODMAP. This example of a gluten-free banana bread is a great alternative and you needn’t worry about those pesky sugars hiding anywhere. It’s moist and flavourful and cuts out multiple allergens to suit many different dietary restrictions. It’s also vegan!
