  • FODMAPs and Soy: Why so Confusing? — IBS—Free at Last!
    will reduce FODMAPs Consuming the soaking water means we are consuming the FODMAPs Soy beans Not suitable Soy milk In the US soy milk is usually made by combining whole soybeans and water It is likely to be high in FODMAPs There are a couple of suitable US products that might be suitable although they haven t been measured in the lab Visit me on Pinterest to see them In Australia soy milk made from isolated soy protein is more available It has been measured in the lab at Monash University and it is considered suitable for a low FODMAP diet Soy yogurt probably high in FODMAPs because the main ingredient is soy milk see above Soybean oil No carbohydrates here so no FODMAPs Fine for the elimination phase Soybean lecithin Not a source of FODMAPs Suitable for the elimination phase Tofu block floating in water unseasoned In the US this might be called soft firm or extra firm tofu This type of tofu has been measured and is low in FODMAPs Tofu is made by coagulating soy milk cutting it into blocks pressing and draining off the resulting liquid The GOS FODMAP is in the liquid which is not consumed Suitable for the elimination phase of the diet Silken tofu This type of tofu is made by coagulating soy milk Instead of being pressed and drained the whole thing is packaged and ultimately consumed I have not seen FODMAP composition data on this type of tofu but it stands to reason the FODMAPs are still in it so it is probably not suitable for the elimination phase of the diet Soy sauce Soy sauce has been measured in the lab and is low in FODMAPs This probably goes for tamari sauce too Teriyaki sauce probably has garlic in it

  • What about cocoa powder and chocolate? — IBS—Free at Last!
    the ingredients include whey and malted milk both potential sources of lactose I don t care what the USDA says chocolate is an important food group However it is my duty to tell you that cocoa powder does contain FODMAPs as tested at the Monash University lab a fact the faculty shared with dietitian attendees at their May 2013 seminar It contains both fructans and galactans in almost equal amounts More recently 4 2014 an update has been posted on Monash s web site stating that 1 ounce of dark chocolate can be considered low FODMAP and suitable for the elimination phase of the diet What is cocoa powder and how is it different from chocolate anyway I got lots of interesting information about chocolate and cocoa from the National Confectioner s Association Chocolate Council at http www thestoryofchocolate com Cocoa powder is ground cocoa solids which have been removed from chocolate liquor chocolate liquor is ground cocoa beans a combination of cocoa solids and cocoa butter think natural peanut butter with peanut solids rather easily separated from the peanut oil Wickedgoodies net has a really sweet illustration of how chocolate is made that will help visual learners such as myself understand all these terms Solid chocolate is made from cocoa liquor which includes both cocoa solids and cocoa butter sugar and sometimes milk It can be difficult to interpret the ingredients named on the label of a chocolate product When you see 70 cocao on a chocolate label that 70 can include chocolate liquor cocoa solids and cocoa butter Many chocolate bars don t even tell you what the chocolate is so you have no clue But you can probably figure that the less fiber per serving the lower the cocoa solids So we re looking for the lowest
