No FODMAP Foods
There ARE foods that have been lab tested that have shown NO DETECTABLE FODMAPs and malt vinegar is one of them! To learn about others, read our article, Which Foods Have No FODMAP Content?
Luckily, since you will most likely want to be putting this salad dressing on some salads, know that red bell pepper, cucumbers, carrots and red lettuce, butter lettuce and leafy endive (to name a few choices) are also no FODMAP.
Is Malt Vinegar Gluten-Free?
Malt vinegar is not gluten-free. It is typically made from barley. Not that the low FODMAP diet is not a gluten-free diet, which is how the no FODMAP design nation for malt vinegar is possible.
Ingredients For No FODMAP Malt Vinegar Salad Dressing
When you have a recipe, such as this, which contains so few ingredients, you want to make sure that each and every one is of the highest quality.
Extra-virgin olive oil – Use an olive oil that you LOVE. One brand from another will vary hugely in flavor. Have a tasting to determine your “go-to” oil.
Malt Vinegar – We can find malt vinegar in our regular supermarket, but you might have to order yours online, so check in plenty of time.
Freshly Ground Black Pepper – When it comes to pepper, it has to be freshly ground. Period. This peppermill is a Peppermate and I love it. Very easy to use.

- 3/4 cup (180 ml) extra virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup (75 ml) malt vinegar
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Shake the oil and vinegar together in a glass covered jar. Season with salt and pepper to taste. The vinaigrette is ready to use or may be refrigerated in a covered container for up to a week. Bring to room temperature before using. You can warm the jar in a bowl of warm water if you are in a rush. Shake well right before using.
Variation: Small amounts of Dijon mustard are low FODMAP. If you like, you can add 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, but then the dressing will be low FODMAP, not No FODMAP. Tasty though! Your choice.
