Store-bought hummus always goes suspiciously fast. Before you know it, you’re desperately scraping the bottom of the tub with the last piece of pita. The stuff at the store usually isn’t the most IBS-friendly either - it tends to be loaded with garlic, onions, and preservatives that can have painful consequences. For a healthy savory snack (that you can make in bottomless quantities), why not skip the grocery store and make our low FODMAP hummus at home instead?
Low FODMAP Cheese and Crackers
From Brie to quark to pecorino, we outlined a definitive list of the best low FODMAP cheeses in a previous article. As long as you stick to 40g and under, you’re safe to mix, match, and create a delectable cheese platter that’s as easy on the eyes as it is on your stomach. Just remember to opt for rice crackers as your cheese vehicle, instead of wheat-based alternatives.
Low FODMAP Potato Chips
If you’re looking for a snack with satisfying crunch and a burst of flavor in every bite, you’ll want to get your hands on a bag of Fody’s low FODMAP barbecue chips. Onion, garlic, gluten, and kinda guilt-free, you’ll have to try them yourself to see what everybody’s raving about. If BBQ’s not your thing, there are other low FODMAP potato chips out there, you’ll just have to read the label carefully to make sure there are no sneaky ingredients that send you running to the toilet.
