Happy Easter low FODMAPpers!



Easter eggs are on the menu!


On a strict low FODMAP diet but wanting to indulge in some sweets? In quantities under 30g, you can still treat yourself to some chocolate this festive season without triggering any symptoms. We recommend dark chocolate to be on the safe side.



  • Green: dark chocolate. 1 serve = 5 squares or 30 g
  • Amber: milk chocolate. 1 serve = 5 squares or 30 g - Lactose is the fodmap
  • Amber: white chocolate. 1 serve = 5 squares or 30 g - Lactose is the fodmap
Avoid large serves of chocolate. Chocolate is high in fat, and when consumed in excess can affect gut motility and may trigger symptoms.
Avoid carob chocolate. Carob powder is high in oligos (fructans), and much higher than cocoa powder.
Have an egg-cellent Easter!
