Broccoli gets a bad wrap as a vegetable that is known to be “windy”, however according to Monash University it’s well tolerated by many people with IBS and does have a low FODMAP serving size.
The part of the broccoli you eat is important. Broccoli florets or heads aka the bits that look like mini trees are low FODMAP. The broccoli stem contains much higher levels of FODMAPs.
How much can you enjoy?
You can enjoy ¾ cup of broccoli heads per meal. These are the bits of the broccoli that look like mini trees. You also have a bit of wriggle room to increase your serving size as broccoli doesn’t contain moderate levels of FODMAPs until you have more than 2 cups. Avoid eating too much of the broccoli stem as this is much higher in FODMAPs.
Please visit the Monash University FODMAP Diet App for more information on the FODMAPs in broccoli and broccoli serving sizes.
