Great news for bread lovers is that sourdough bread can fit into the low FODMAP diet! But you have to be careful because not all sourdough breads are the same.
What to look for:
- Choose a sourdough that is made from wheat or spelt
- Avoid loaves made with rye or barley flour
- Choose a loaf that has been leavened for about 12 hours or more
These are just some rules that will help point you towards a lower FODMAP loaf but keep in mind that without analysing each loaf, we don’t know for sure what the FODMAP content is.
Where to find sourdough bread
You can try a French or artisan bakery. Phone ahead because at some bakeries only sell sourdough on certain days.
If you are in Edmonton, here’s where I find delicious sourdough:
- Bonjour Bakery
- Prairie Mill
