Are you surprised to read the title of this article? Apples dipped IN honey – are synonymous with a tradition associated with the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, which is why we are talking about this now.
Both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have lab tested apples! See the low FODMAP amounts, below.Clover honey in particular is low FODMAP in amounts of ½ teaspoon (3 g). A more generic honey has been lab tested and is low FODMAP in 1 teaspoon (7 g) amounts.
How Much Apple is Low FODMAP?
Monash University has lab tested both Pink Lady and Granny Smith apples, both peeled an unpeeled. They become Moderate (Yellow Light) for FODMAPs very quickly. Here is the low FODMAP serving size information:
Pink Lady Apples, raw unpeeled: low FODMAP serving size is 20g
Pink Lady Apples, raw peeled: low FODMAP serving size is 20g
Granny Smith Apples, raw unpeeled: low FODMAP serving size is 25g
Granny Smith Apples, raw peeled: low FODMAP serving size is 25g
FODMAP Friendly has lab tested both Pink Lady and Granny Smith apples; their images show an apple intact, with peel:
Pink Lady Apples, raw unpeeled: low FODMAP serving size is 31g
Granny Smith Apples, raw unpeeled: low FODMAP serving size is 24g
PLEASE NOTE that each testing body found opposite findings. Monash labs showed Granny Smith apples to have a more generous serving size, while with FODMAP Friendly it was vice versa. Again, please refer to that article on differing lab results
The diced amount in the bowl is 20 grams; the thicker slices on the left are 20 grams; and the thinner slices on the right are 20 grams.
Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the New Year, and it is customary to have sweet foods. Apples and honey are both sweet, and they are emblematic of the sweet year that we hope God will bring us. As of right now, your Nana’s honey cake might have to be set aside. That would be too much honey!
