Why Low FODMAP?
FODMAPs are types of carbohydrates that are not absorbed well in the small intestine and can be fermented upon by bacteria in the large intestine. This fermentation process can cause symptoms in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) such as bloating, gas, and pain.
Epicured's Peanut Butter & Chocolate Energy Bites are designed with a low FODMAP ingredient profile, which means they contain fewer ingredients that are likely to ferment and cause discomfort for those sensitive to such components. The recipe is crafted to offer a flavorful and nutritious snack while avoiding common irritants that can upset sensitive digestive systems.
This dish contains 1 gram of flaxseeds and 1 gram of shredded coconut per serving. According to Monash University, up to 15 grams of flaxseeds and 30 grams of shredded coconut are low in FODMAPs and should be tolerated by most individuals with IBS. Enjoy up to 4 energy bites for a low FODMAP elimination phase-safe serving.
