Keep if FODMAP friendly
Get the party started with these fresh and fizzy low FODMAP mint-ginger sparklers! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe low FODMAP.
First up, ginger. According to Monash University, ginger root doesn't have any FODMAPs. So this ingredient won't add anything to your FODMAP load.
Next up, mint. According to the Monash app, mint is low FODMAP in servings of 1 bunch (90 g) per sitting. Though Monash doesn't list a maximum serving size. According to the Monash University blog, foods without listed limits can be eaten in larger servings without going over your FODMAP threshold.
We'll be using 1/4 a cup of fresh mint leaves, which works out to 0.8 g per sitting. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
We'll also be using lime juice. Monash has determined that lime juice is low FODMAP in servings of 1 cup (250 g) per sitting. Servings of 1 1/5 cups (300 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
Our recipe calls for 1/4 cup of lime juice total, which works out to about 10 g per serving. This is well within the recommended range.
Next up, ginger beer. Heads up, ginger beer is a little different than ginger ale. Ginger ale is carbonated water flavoured with ginger, while ginger beer is made by brewing the ginger and letting it ferment. This gives the ginger beer a deeper flavour with a subtle spicy kick.
When picking your ginger beer, look for something made with natural cane sugar and without any additional FODMAPs. A quick Google will show you ginger beer brands available in your area. I was able to find a few brands made with just water, ginger, cane sugar, and lemon!
We'll also be using seltzer. Seltzer is just carbonated water, so it won't add anything to your FODMAP load. However, some people find that carbonation bothers their gut. If you think this will be the case for you, skip the seltzer and just add cold water.
Last but not least, gin! According to Monash, gin doesn't have any FODMAPs, so it won't add anything to your FODMAP load. Gin is still a general gut irritant, though, so Monash recommends sticking to a standard serving of 30 ml per sitting.
