Bell Peppers:  The low FODMAP serving sizes is 1/2 cup or 52 grams. As of January 2018, only red and green peppers have been tested. Although unlikely, orange and yellow bell peppers may not be tolerated by all individuals.

Jalapeños: Jalapeño and chili peppers are considered low FODMAP, however, spicy foods containing capsicum may not be tolerated by all individuals.

Green onions: The green top portion of green onions or scallions are low in FODMAPs. However, FODMAPs are concentrated in the white bulb portion, which should be avoided during FODMAP elimination phase.
