Monash advises on the suitability of ‘superfoods’ for the Low Fodmap diet and de-bunks the myth

If you have followed my blog for some time you are probably aware of my views on super foods – if not check out one of my previous posts on the superfood called carrots – yes really! The blog has an old reference to David Cameron’s pasty saga though, which you might not be aware of, as the post was written some time ago!

The carrot has the added advantage that it is low fodmap too, so don’t believe all the superfood hype. The best fact is though that carrots are cheap – superfoods attract a super high price, the best tip however is to have a good variety of foods in your diet. You don’t need to include these super foods to be healthy. But what if you want to include coconut water, kale and chia seeds in your Low Fodmap Diet? The Monash blog has a really good post about de-bunking the myth behind super foods and gives advice on the fodmap content of those foods. You should check out this blog.
