Low FODMAP Tidbit of the Day: Fruit can be one of those tricky foods on a low FODMAP plan, because too much fructose (aka fruit sugar) may trigger symptoms in some people. Some fruits like bananas and blueberries contain similar amounts of fructose and another sugar called glucose.

 Fruits with this, more or less, balance of fructose and glucose seem to be less problematic, however, serving sizes are important! Enjoy multiple “balanced” fruits at one meal or snack in serving sizes equivalent to 1 recommended serving of fruit. Monash’s App is a fantastic resource for recommended serving sizes!

Ripe Banana: A low FODMAP serving is ⅓ medium or 33 grams. Larger servings of ripe bananas do contain higher amounts of FODMAPs which may trigger symptoms in some individuals.

Blueberries: A low FODMAP serving is a ¼ cup, heaped, or 40 grams.

Spinach: A low FODMAP serving is 1 cup or 38 grams.

Low FODMAP Milk: I like Milkadamia macadamia milk.

Chia Seeds: A low FODMAP serving is 2 Tbsp. or 24 grams.
