It’s ALWAYS exciting when the Monash University researchers provide updates on food or beverage regarding FODMAP content. Well….if you are like me, today is your lucky day!
But the info conflicts with some of the information I had gathered earlier. (Frustrating!)
That is, I had heard instant coffee and cocoa were on the high FODMAP side–and as you will note–sometimes its all about interpretation of info. The Monash researchers say some instant coffee is okay (2 teaspoons)–and 3 teaspoons of cocoa is low FODMAP–but that is a fairly small portion. So…as always with FODMAPs -size matters!
Placed in a traffic system chart the latest on Hot Beverages: coffee, teas and drinking chocolate is provided…Here is the link! Another important point: Also do pay attention to preparation methods, added milk, and portion size to assess how this information fits into your normal diet or anticipated use of the product.
Well….I made it to Portland, Oregon for the RD FODMAP workshop! The last of the West Coast tour! Oregon is home to many breweries so being a tourist I checked out Hopworks Bike bar. A very fun place and a yummy beer!
Tonight…Homeward bound! Looking forward to being with the fam!
