Say hello to good old low FODMAP ranch dressing. It’s creamy, feels like home and is just embarrassingly good on way too many things! And with a couple of simple swaps you can even make it low FODMAP.
Monash University Low FODMAP Certified™ recipe: One serving of a meal made in accordance with this recipe can assist with following the Monash University Low FODMAP diet™. A strict low FODMAP diet should only be commenced under the supervision of a healthcare professional.

Garlic infused oil is normally found in the oil section of your local supermarket or you can buy it online. It should be clear with no floating bits of garlic.
You can also make garlic infused oil at home by frying garlic cloves in cooking oil until they are golden and fragrant, then remove and discard the garlic before you continue cooking your meal. This is a low FODMAP way to capture the garlic flavour as the fructans can't leach into the oil.
Monash University has tested Worcestershire sauce and it is low FODMAP, despite containing small amounts of onion and garlic. The sauce is low FODMAP because the onion and garlic are fermented during the manufacturing process which reduces the FODMAP levels. If you are vegan then choose a Worcestershire sauce that does not contain animal products.
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.
Buy a gluten free Worcestershire sauce or substitute 1 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce, 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice, and 1/2 tsp brown sugar for every tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Often the ingredient labels don't state they are gluten free, so if the ingredients look safe then ring the manufacturer to confirm.
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.
