Keep It FODMAP Friendly
This low FODMAP warm potato salad is the savoury side dish you've been waiting for! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up, potatoes. According to Monash Univerisity, potatoes don't have any detectable FODMAPs. This means you can eat as many potatoes as you'd like without adding to your FODMAP load. But, potatoes do have a fair amount of fibre, so don't go wild!
This recipe also calls for low FODMAP mayonnaise. In case you didn't know, mayonnaise is made from whipping eggs and oil. Eggs and oil don't have any FODMAPs, but, many companies add high FODMAP ingredients like onion and garlic to their products to make them taste better after living on a shelf for months. So, remember to check the ingredients for sneaky FODMAPs before you buy.
We'll also be using lemon juice. According to Monash, lemon juice is low FODMAP in servings of 1/2 a cup (125 g) per sitting. Servings of 3/4 cup (187 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
Our potato salad uses 1 + 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice total. This works out to 5.9 g per serving, which is well within Monash's recommended range.
Next up, green onions. Monash has determined the green part of a green onion doesn't have any FODMAPs, so you can adjust the number of green onions to your taste without adding to your FODMAP load.
Last but not least, bacon! Since bacon is a protein, it doesn't have any FODMAPs. But many companies add high FODMAP ingredients like honey and garlic and onion to enhance their flavour. Make sure to check the ingredients for any sneaky FODMAPs, and you're good to go!
