Quinoa Breakfast Pudding

By Lucy Taylor (Accredited Practising Dietitian)

Quinoa is a good choice on a low FODMAPs diet as it’s a good source of fibre and is higher in protein than other grains such as rice or corn (though it’s technically a pseudo-grain).

Label reading – how to spot the FODMAPs

By Caroline Tuck (PhD Candidate & Accredited Practising Dietitian)

Reading food labels can assist you to recognize suitable foods on a low FODMAP diet. The table below describes common, FODMAP containing ingredients and products where these ingredients may be found.

Remember that ingredients on food labels are listed in order of weight. So the first ingredient listed is in the highest quantity and the last ingredient listed is in the lowest quantity. When you are starting to re-introduce higher FODMAP foods, you may choose to try products which have high FODMAP ingredients such as garlic powder listed as minor ingredients. You just then need to monitor your tolerance.
