Low FODMAP Resources

LOW FODMAP FOODS AND SHOPPING LISTS

Here is a list of high and low FODMAP foods created by Patsy Catsos MS RD LD author of The IBS Elimination Diet and Cookbook: The Proven Low-FODMAP Plan for Eating Well and Feeling Great. This book is a great place to start for anyone wanting to learn more about the low FODMAP diet.

Kate Scarlata RDN also has a great website that provides many low FODMAP resources, recipes, and shopping list. Here is her link to a great overview of high and low FODMAP foods and a low FODMAP grocery list.

Both Patsy Catsos MS, RD, LD and Kate Scarlata RDN have wonderful RDN tool kits and educational handouts to purchase which I have found very helpful in my practice.

Here are some other great websites and blogs to expand you knowledge about the low FODMAP diet.
