Finding a FODMAP-friendly chicken broth can be a real challenge. But you don't need to panic! This low FODMAP chicken broth is easy to make and freezer-friendly so you can easily keep it on hand.
When I started the Low FODMAP Diet, finding low FODMAP chicken broth was a huge problem! I had never made my own broth before, so I was at a bit of a loss when I couldn't find a low FODMAP brand at my local store.
For my Canadian peeps, Campbell's and GoBio chicken broth are both low FODMAP. If you can't find these brands at your local store, this low FODMAP chicken broth is an easy way to keep this pantry staple on hand.

Keep It FODMAP Friendly
This low FODMAP chicken broth is an easy way to add a classic flavour to your favourite dishes. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP-friendly.
First, the star of this recipe is chicken. Since chicken is a protein, it doesn't have any FODMAPs. That means it won't add to your overall FODMAP load.
This recipe also uses carrots. According to the Monash app, carrots don't have any detectable FODMAPs. This means you can eat as many as you want and they won't add to your FODMAP load.
Last but not least, are leeks. According to the Monash app, the green part of a leek is low FODMAP in servings of 2/3 of a cup per sitting. Servings of 1 cup or more are high in the polyol mannitol.
Our recipe uses 1 cup of leeks total. This works out to 2.6 tbsp of leeks per cup. Even if you drink the broth on its own, this is well within the recommended range.
