Frequency Asked Questions
Most traditional recipes for gravy are not low FODMAP. They often begin with sautéing high FODMAP onions and/or garlic, and they use wheat flour for thickening, which is high FODMAP in larger amounts. Onions and/or garlic, as well as high FODMAP amounts of celery, might have been used to prepare traditional stock, as well, which is used to make classic gravy.
