It has been a slow process….but the low FODMAP diet continues to gain momentum and interest around the globe. I have received numerous inquires for low FODMAP diet information most recently from India and Norway! It won’t be long, I imagine, that shopping for low FODMAP brandname foods will become much easier. A big step in the right direction is Monash University’s newly launched food certification program.
The Monash University Low FODMAP certification program provides accreditation to food products that meet their low FODMAP and nutrient criteria. All products will be analyzed for FODMAP content in the labs in the Department of Gastroenterology at Monash University. If the product is healthy and low FODMAP then the logo above will appear on the package! How cool is that? And how much easier would shopping be for the low FODMAP shopper?!
US food companies can contact Monash University to learn how their healthy food items can be low FODMAP certified. If you have a favorite brandname food that you feel is low FODMAP AND nutritious, encourage the company to get their food product tested by the Monash University researchers! As an added bonus, products tested and approved will be featured in the Monash University low FODMAP app!
