Feta Cheese is Low FODMAP
Are you surprised? Many cheeses are actually low FODMAP. Cheddar, Swiss, Brie, mozzarella, Havarti and yes, feta (among others), are considered low FODMAP in certain small portions, most of them in portions of 40 g. You CAN enjoy this recipe for Low FODMAP Baked Feta with Olives & Sundried Tomatoes while following the diet – even the Elimination phase!
Learn More About Lactose-Free vs. Dairy-Free
We understand the confusion; for years I followed a dairy-free diet and in the end, after a strict Elimination phase and a well-structured Challenge Phase, undertaken with a Registered Dietitian, I learned that I COULD eat dairy, but just needed to watch my intake of high lactose foods. Read our article, Lactose, Dairy and the Low FODMAP Diet for a fuller explanation.
Choose Your Dairy Source
Feta can be found made from cow’s milk, sheep’s milk, goats’ milk and even sometimes a blend of milks.
I am partial to sheep’s milk feta, but you can choose the kind that you like. Use one that you like the taste of when sampled plain. I like feta with a middle-of-the-road saltiness. For this recipe it is okay if you use one that is crumbly, as you will be crumbling it anyway!
