Keep It FODMAP Friendly
This low FODMAP fried rice will keep your taste buds and your tummy happy! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up, rice. Monash University has listed white rice as low FODMAP in servings of 1 cup (190 g), cooked. But they don't list a maximum serving size.
Monash has explained on their blog that foods with no limit can be eaten in large portions without pushing the average person with IBS over their FODMAP threshold. So you can add more rice if you're feeling hungry.
Next up, peas. According to the Monash app, peas are low FODMAP in servings of 1 tbsp (15 g). Servings of 2 tbsp or more are high in the FODMAP GOS.
We'll be using 1/4 cup of peas, total. This works out to 1 tbsp per serving. This is within Monash's recommended range.
We'll also be using carrots. According to Monash, carrots don't have any detectable FODMAPs. So you can have as much as you'd like without contributing to your FODMAP load.
Next up, eggs. Since eggs are a protein, they don't have any FODMAPs. So they won't contribute to your FODMAP load.
This recipe also calls for vegetable oil and sesame seed oil. Most oils contain fats, not carbohydrates. So they don't have any FODMAPs.
Last but not least, soy sauce. According to the Monash app, soy sauce is low FODMAP in servings of 2 tbsp (42 g) per sitting. We'll be using 1 tbsp, which works out to 21 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
