TOP 10 Low-FODMAP Fruits

2 February, 2021 , , ,

The low-FODMAP diet provides relief to long-time sufferers of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). It consists of a phase of temporary elimination of FODMAP carbohydrates, followed by a phase of reintroduction and a phase of long-term maintenance.

Since FODMAPs are found in many fruits, vegetables, nuts, dairy and grain products, the person starting this diet may feel a bit lost at the start, especially when it comes to understand which fruits are low-FODMAP, hence allowed, and which ones are not allowed.

To help you not get discouraged, here is the list of our favorite low-FODMAP fruits.

#10 Orange

Fortunately, oranges and other citrus fruits are low in FODMAPs. You can eat an orange without a problem, but be careful with store-bought orange juice which may not be low in FODMAP.You could squeeze the oranges yourself at the last minute otherwise you would lose some of the vitamin C in contact with the air), but it is always better to eat the fruit as is, to take advantage of its fiber.

Also known as “dragon fruit”, it can be enjoyed as it is or in salads, sorbets or smoothies. Choose a bright coloured ripe fruit without spots, which feels slightly soft when pressed. Cut it lenghtwise with a sharp knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Be careful not to eat the skin, as it is not edible.
