    Hello! Your resources are great! I’m wondering if Telenti dark chocolate sorbetto is low fodmap. Ingredients: water· sugar· cocoa powder (processed with alkali)· dextrose· vanilla extract· carob gum· guar gum. What about Lactaid chocolate ice cream? Thank you!

      Can’t say for sure (without the food being actually tested)–but I think the Talenti chocolate sorbetto is low FODMAP. And the lactaid chocolate looks good too.

    Looks good! What do you do with the reserved 1/3 of mixture? Is it supposed to be put on top of the pressed-into-pan mixture? Or put on top of the fruit? Thanks for all of your IBS help!
