Low FODMAP info for those with IBS:

1 cup of quinoa is low FODMAP 

Sweet potato at 70g is low FODMAP in polyol mannitol 

Zucchini at 66g is low FODMAP in olgio fructans 

Baby spinach at 1 cup is low FODMAP in olgio fructans. Note that zucchini and baby spinach both contain the same FODMAP, so I usually suggest if you are sensible to halve the low FODMAP serve to be safe. So I had 30g zucchini and 1/2 cup spinach

200g Greek strained yoghurt is low FODMAP, lactose but for this recipe I only needed about 50g. 

Capsicum naturally low FODMAP (none detected)

Jap pumpkin is naturally low FODMAP (none detected) 

Spring onions - green parts only are low FODMAP (none detected) .
