Ingredients Breakdown and Their Low FODMAP Status:
Made from hemp nuts (shelled hemp seeds), this milk is naturally low in FODMAPs. Unlike many dairy products, which can be high in lactose (a high FODMAP sugar), hemp milk offers a gentle alternative for those with digestive sensitivities.
Additional ingredients like vanilla extract, sunflower lecithin, and various vitamins and minerals are generally well-tolerated and do not contribute high FODMAP content.
Dragon Fruit (Pitaya):
This exotic fruit is low in FODMAPs when consumed in moderate amounts, making it suitable for a sensitive digestive system.
Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries:
All these berries are known to be low in FODMAPs, especially when consumed in controlled quantities. They offer the taste, color, and antioxidants without the digestive distress.
100% Pure Maple Syrup:
A natural sweetener that's derived directly from the sap of the maple tree. It's low FODMAP and a favored choice for those avoiding high FODMAP sweeteners like honey or high fructose corn syrup.
While some coconut products can be high in FODMAPs, the coconut milk in this blend (particularly when diluted with water) is utilized in a way that keeps the FODMAP content in check. Additionally, the presence of added vitamins and stabilizers doesn't significantly raise the FODMAP levels.
Ginger is not only renowned for its zesty flavor but also its digestive benefits. It’s low in FODMAPs and can even aid in soothing the stomach.
To sum up, this blend is crafted with ingredients known to be low in FODMAPs. The FODMAP diet focuses on reducing certain fermentable carbs that might trigger digestive symptoms in sensitive individuals. By selecting ingredients that are naturally low in these problematic compounds, the drink offers a flavorful experience without the typical digestive woes.
