- I love nuts, chia seeds, dates and chocolate! Are these foods suitable for someone with IBS?
While some nuts are suitable for a low FODMAP diet such as pine nuts and brazil nuts, other nuts in excess amounts, such as almonds may become a high FODMAP food. Chia seeds is a wonderful seed to add to salads and smoothies for additional fiber content while it is also suitable for a low FODMAP diet. Dates also seem to be extremely popular, especially in sweets and other desserts. Dates can absolutely still be part of a low FODMAP diet as long as it is consumed in smaller amounts (1/3, pitted). Chocolate is overall a friendly low FODMAP food; however, it is important to know your tolerance level as this sweet treat can become a moderate to high FODMAP food if consuming more than 1⁄2 of a small bar or 5 squares. It is important to note that not everyone has the same tolerance level when it comes to specific FODMAPs and to know what works well for you.
