Brazil Nuts: Newly tested for FODMAP content

  


Brazil nuts are another food that people have frequently asked us to test for FODMAP content! 

Brazil nuts have been given an overall rating of green. The serving sizes specified here are low in FODMAPs and should be tolerated by most individuals with IBS.  

Avoid very large servings of brazil nuts (> 100 grams) which contain high amounts of the Oligos-GOS.

  4. What about Brazil nut milk? I just made some and had it in a smoothie with banana, blueberries and kale and have had pain and wind since.

    1. Hi Kate,

      Unfortunately we have yet to test Brazil nut milk so cannot comment on its FODMAP content. Perhaps speak to your dietitian about the reaction you had or try using another low FODMAP milk alternative that we have tested in the app.

      Best wishes,
