Finding appropriate low FODMAP products can sometimes be challenging; be it time going from store to store if you live in a major city, or maybe the shops in your town don’t actually stock the low FODMAP products you’ve seen online. When Shaynie from FOD Shop reached out to us recently, I was SO excited – part of the reason I launched The FODMAP Challenge was to help people who didn’t have in-person access to a dietitian experienced in working with FODMAPs, so to now have some of the products I often recommend all available online, in the one place is awesome!
Here’s a little about FOD Shop from Shaynie, and if you head over to our Insta you’ll see a sneaky comp we have running until the 10th of September, so jump over and win yourself a package of goodies, AND entry to The FODMAP Challenge!
A little about FOD Shop…
FOD Shop is an online grocery food shop providing low FODMAP food products to customers and patients who require a low FODMAP diet, for the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
When following a low FODMAP diet, many foods are eliminated to help patients pinpoint their food triggers, making it very difficult to maintain a balanced diet. It is even more difficult to find food products in supermarkets that are low in FODMAPs, as these molecules are found in high quantities in many pre-packaged foods available in the Australian food supply.
FOD Shop provides those following a low FODMAP diet with delicious, tasty pantry food options that are all low in FODMAPs. Having all low FODMAP food products available in the one place makes it much easier to find safe food products which can be eaten while following a low FODMAP diet. This saves time, as we no longer need attend various supermarkets & health food stores in hope of finding suitable low FODMAP foods.
Why are the products ok?
The products have been analysed & deemed suitable by FODMAP experts trained in the field, therefore they are safe and suitable for IBS patients to eat, no matter where a person is at in their digestive health journey. FOD Shop provides a combination of low FODMAP by ingredient, and low FODMAP certified food products, certified either by The FODMAP Friendly Food Program or Monash University; Australia’s leaders in FODMAP food product FODMAP research and analysis.
In addition to the provision of low FODMAP food products online, FOD Shop provides low FODMAP resources to patients, including low FODMAP and allergen friendly recipes that are healthy, quick and easy to make in the face of a very busy lifestyle, and a global open-access gut health specialist directory, to enable improved patient access to a local FODMAP and gut health expert clinician, no matter where a patient is based.
FOD Shop are very passionate about empowering patients and customers to take control of their health, when at times it can feel impossible. Their mission is to continue to build a strong community support network for IBS patients and gut health experts, empowering all involved to work together to achieve better gut health outcomes.
