Keep It FODMAP Friendly
These quick and easy low FODMAP breaded pork chops will be a family favourite in no time. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First, because pork is a protein, it doesn't have any FODMAPs. But, there are some other ingredients we need to consider.
Since this is a breaded dish, if you're in the elimination phase, you'll need to use gluten-free breadcrumbs. Make sure to check the label for sneaky high FODMAP ingredients (like chicory root (inulin), high FODMAP flours like amaranth flour, and honey).
Out of bread crumbs? If I'm in a pinch, I toast two pieces of FODMAP friendly bread and send them through my coffee grinder. Remember to stick your toast in the fridge for 5-10 minutes before you grind it. This will remove any condensation and prevent soggy breadcrumbs.
Remember, unless you have celiac disease, you're avoiding the FODMAP fructan, not the gluten itself.
Next up is parmesan. Hard cheeses are low FODMAP in small portions. This is because bacteria eat the lactose during the fermentation process. According to Monash University, 1/2 a cup of parmesan cheese per sitting is safe.
We use 1/4 cup of parmesan in this recipe, which works out to 1 tbsp of parmesan per serving. This is well within the suggested range.
Finally, be careful when you choose your Dijon mustard. While 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard is fine, honey Dijon mustard is not. Honey is high in fructose and isn't suitable for the elimination phase. So, make sure you double-check your mustard before you start.
Whose Side Are You On?
