Keep It FODMAP Friendly
These low FODMAP rice krispies are a great kid-friendly holiday treat. Check out the notes below for tips to keep this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First, if you’re in the elimination phase, you’ll need to used gluten-free rice krispies. For my Canadian peeps, Kellogg’s brown rice line is gluten-free and doesn’t have any other FODMAPs. If you’re using a different brand, make sure to check the ingredients using your Monash app.
Next up is marshmallows. These can be a little tricky. A lot of marshmallow brands use either corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup. Corn syrup hasn’t been tested by Monash yet, so it isn’t suitable for the elimination phase.
High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a processed sweetener. According to Monash University, its high FODMAP and should be avoided during elimination. You can read more about high fructose corn syrup here.
I have had the best luck with a brand called “marshmallow fluff.” It’s a vegan product made with glucose, sugar, egg whites, and vanillin. It comes in a jar, so it isn’t great for all marshmallow projects, but it’s perfect for our rice krispies.
