Mushrooms in a low FODMAP recipe? Yes! This recipe from Soupology by Drew Smith features low FODMAP amounts of both dried shiitake mushrooms and fresh oyster mushrooms. The broth is enhanced with root vegetables, which lend an earthy sweetness, and is bolstered with protein-rich tofu. And yes, firm tofu and miso are low FODMAP soy products!
Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.
- Carrots: Carrots have been lab tested and deemed low FODMAP by both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly. According to Monash carrots contain no FODMAPs.
- Celeriac: Also known as celery root and knob celery; it is a variety related to the common celery you are probably familiar with. Monash has lab tested celeriac and it is low FODMAP in 75 g amounts. It is helpful to note that it does not become Moderate for FODMAPs until it reaches 350 g, which is quite a lot.
- Oil: All pure oils are fats and contain no carbohydrates, therefore they contain no FODMAPs.
- Parsnips: Parsnips have been lab tested by Monash University and have shown no detectable FODMAPs.
- Tofu: Both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have lab tested various kinds of tofu. Both have found silken tofu to be high in FODMAPs, particularly fructans and GOS. Monash University says that both firm and plain tofu (the US equivalent of extra firm and firm) have low FODMAP servings. 160 g of drained for the firm and 170 g for the plain. FODMAP Friendly gives firm tofu a “Pass” at 100 g.
Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
