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.
