Buy gluten free burger buns, bread, and wraps that do not contain any high FODMAP ingredients like inulin/chicory root fibre, apple or pear juice, apple fibre, concentrated fruit juices, honey, or high fructose corn syrup.
Also check what low FODMAP flours have been used, avoid gluten free products that contain amaranth flour, lupin flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour or large amounts of soy flour or coconut flour.
Fresh lemongrass is found with the fresh herbs in the chilled section of the vegetable aisle. Avoid using lemongrass paste as it often contains lactose or onion/garlic powder.
Buy a bunch of spring onions/scallions with long green leaves. You can use the green leaves in your low FODMAP meals, just make sure you avoid using the white stem and lime green stems as these are high FODMAP. Once you've harvested the leaves pop the spring onion/scallion bulbs into a glass of water on the window sill. The leaves will reshoot so you can harvest them again.
Make your lemon juice and lemon zest from fresh lemon.
Check your dried chilli flakes do not contain onion or garlic powder.
The amount of wheat in regular soy sauce is low FODMAP, however if you are feeling concerned you can buy gluten free soy sauce (Tamari).
Choose a mayonnaise that does not include onion or garlic powder. We like using Best Foods Mayonnaise (Lite or regular). If you are a meal plan member you can also grab the recipe for our egg free mayonnaise here.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
