Hi Suzanne, I was just wondering if you knew is cassava flour gluten free and low fodmap??? Also have you ever tried using psyllium husk in bread baking? And also what would suggest in replace for almond flour and coconut flour? I am allergic to tree nuts and coconut flour tends to upset my stomach, which is strange as I’m fine with coconut milk…… Oh and one more thing, top work on your website, the gluten free, fodmap free, dairy free recipes and the photography and the dietary information!!!!!!!

Cassava flour is called tapioca flour, which I use a lot. Yes, it is gluten-free and low FODMAP. Not, I haven’t used psyllium husk though I have seen it in recipes. I don’t know much about it but I am worried that it sounds like fibre and those with IBS have to be careful of too much fibre. I replace almond flour with my own gluten-free flour blend which is 1.3cups white rice flour, 1/3 cups of both potato starch and tapioca flour. Coconut flour is a beast all on its own because of its super absorbing properties and is not the easiest to substitute. Coconuts are not strictly a nut but I do have to be a bit careful with coconut products. They are quite rich and IBS sufferers are not good with rich foods. Thanks so much for the compliment. I am glad you find my site useful.

I’m looking for a gluten-free sandwich bread recipe without gums or other additives. I’m going to make your hamburger buns tonight. Thanks!

I love those hamburger buns. This is a great sandwich loaf: http://www.strandsofmylife.com/gluten-free-low-fodmap-bread/ I eat some fresh and then cut it into slices and freeze them. 20-30 seconds in the microwave and it is like new.

Is cabbage a high foodmap?
February 8, 2016 at 8:45 am
We can have 1 cup of common cabbage (raw measurement).
February 9, 2016 at 8:49 am
Thank you! I assume that common cabbage is the same as the green cabbage. One more question about peaches. Are all peaches high foodmap or just the white one. The list says white peaches are high. I don’t think I have ever seen a white peach. Thank you so very much1
February 9, 2016 at 8:51 am
Yes, the green one. All peaches are high Fodmap as are all stone fruits.

Do you have a recipe for vegetable stock, and can I use it to cook quinoa at the ratio of 1cup quinoa and 2-3 cups stock. not sure if the vegetable stock would be over the recommended amount of vegetables. or do I need to put half stock/half water.
April 5, 2016 at 8:11 pm
I don’t have a specific recipe for stock but what I do is put a chicken carcass or chicken bones with a little meat left on them in a pot of water with a bayleaf, rosemary, oregano, cardamom seeds, coriander seeds, peppercorns, chopped up celery, carrot and the green part of spring onions, salt and pepper as well as 1tsp of garlic oil. Boil this hard for an hour or more until the liquid has reduced down to make a good stock flavour. You can vary the herbs and spices as much as you want. When we roast a chicken, I do this with what is left over but you can also use the raw chicken leftovers. Yes, use the stock to cook the quinoa.

Do you have a recipe for bread that is not too difficult to make?
July 10, 2016 at 11:20 am
There is one here: http://www.strandsofmylife.com/gluten-free-low-fodmap-bread/

I just wanted to say that I find your site and especially your recipes very useful for someone who’s just discovered the Low FODMAP diet! I’m from France and here we are at least 10 years behind everyone else when it comes to IBS or food intolerance (for example, there’s no test for the fructose intolerance). I’ve told my doctor about the FODMAP diet and he thought I was talking about some new fancy diet to loose weight… Anyway, everything looks so good, I plan on trying a few during the next few weeks (I need to adapt some to the products available here) but I’ve been eating rice and avoiding vegetables/fruits/lactose/fat… for so long now that I still can’t believe it’s actually possible to eat something that looks good and doesn’t makes me sick for days afterwards!

You have to eat at least vegetables to get the micro-nutrients your body needs so please do expand your diet and include the low Fodmap vegetables.
Many doctors everywhere still don’t know about the low Fodmap diet but it is changing slowly.
Good luck with the recipes.

Do you have a recipe for Christmas cake, which is low fodmap and does’nt have any sugar in it?
October 26, 2016 at 8:22 am
The classic Christmas cake is not for us because it has too much dried fruit in it. You will have to use a completely different cake – perhaps my carrot or banana cake.
