Low FODMAP Brand Name Packaged Foods

I will be the first to admit it… I can be very lazy. So when it comes to having a meal or snack, I want the easiest method possible. Especially when I am dining alone at home. I often turn to packaged foods for dinner or a snack. However, finding these brand name foods can be difficult when you’re adhering to a low FODMAP diet.

Surprisingly, there are a lot of products that will fit into the diet. However, most of these items are merely ingredients. I excluded the safe ingredients and fresh foods because I covered them in the low FODMAP foods to enjoy list. Plus I outlined my favorite low FODMAP items that is a reflection of my weekly grocery list. I wanted to outline the products that are good right out of the package without cooking, assembling or adding anything.

  1. WONDERFUL lemon cookies from WOW Baking Company out of WA. Super moist and lemony and they keep well -not like most other soft gf cookies I’ve tried.

  2. Now that Kellogg’s has discontinued the gluten free Rice Krispies, are the regular ones safe with the malt flavor?

    • Off the cuff, I would say that as long as it is regular corn syrup, it probably is somewhat safe for FODMAPS, its HF-CS that has the exorbitant amoutn of fructose for triggers.
      Many gums are texture modifiers and not a caloric source. This is possibly why people seem to like UDI’s, when you take the gluten out of bread, you are getting rid of a major texture modifier, so replacement is found elsewhere.
      That being said, if it triggers you, skip it!

  3. I have just found your site and I am so grateful for all the information you are providing. Thank you so much! I do have a question though: I notice you recommend rice milk as a dairy milk alternative. Doesn’t most milk alternatives (rice, almond, coconut, etc.) contain various gums (xanthan, gellan, etc. and carrageenan)? I was under the impression that if you have IBS you should avoid those ingredients. Am I misinformed?

    • Sweet corn is high in FODMAPs, but not dry corn products, as a rule. I would proceed with caution with them however. They may have low levels of FODMAPs.

  4. Do you know if the Glutino chocolate covered pretzels are Fodmap friendly? Thanks for this list, its been so very helpful. I live in Canada and many of these items were available in my local grocery store. Thanks!!!

  5. I had some Glutino pretzels that had onion and garlic powder on them both of which are not FODMAP friendly. So pay attention to that.

  6. Cooking FODMAP for DH due to steroids he takes for myasthenia gravis. Our go-to products include the Heartland GF Pastas found at Wallyworld (holds up well for first serving and softens for warm ups) and Cookwell Garlic Infused Olive Oil, also purchased at the big W store. Trader Joe’s has a good garlic infused olive oil, too, but costs a bit more. Anyone have reports on using Reese’s brand Onion or Garlic Juice concentrates found in spice aisles? Have tried sparingly (1t in recipes w tomatoes or for pasta sauce) with no probs so far. Hub isn’t truly allergic, just miserable gastric distress before trying blessed fodmap diet plan, so he may have different tolerance. Love the brand lists~Thanks!

  7. Thank you love this so helpful. One question is many folks do not have the monies, budget to buy these products. Seem they are really expensive conoared to reg products and hard to find in out of inner cities. Any idea what to do??

  8. honey nut cheerios is gluten free.
    Artic Zero ice cream low glycolic lactose free gmo free. check out the ingredients for any of your restrictions
    Good Value lactose -free milk is the most like regular milk it is not sickly sweet.
    original special K rice cereal’s second ingredient is wheat gluten. a huge disappointment.

    • I thought it’s the sugars in wheat that are a problem, not the gluten itself. Gluten is a protein and not a sugar, so isn’t extracted gluten fine as an ingredient for FODMAP? When I read the principles behind this diet it seems that getting gf is just an easier way to find wheat and barley free items. (Gluten sensitivity may be a separate issue of yours, about 1% of people have).

      • Yes, gluten itself is not a FODMAP. For non celiacs, seitan (pure wheat gluten) should not be a problem. Some sourdough wheat beads are fine because the yeast has broken down the FODMAPs even though the gluten is intact.

    • I love drinking Zevia. It is soda that is made with Stevia. It also has no caramel color and GMO free. I tried another Stevia soda but it still had the caramel color. Didn’t like it as much. Zevia also has a good selection of flavors. Juices I am not sure about.

    • generally speaking, if the whole fruit is ok, the juice is also probably ok. Unsweetened orange juice is good. Watch your portions. It’s easier to get a lot of FODMAPs from juice than whole fruit.

    • I think it would depend on the specific milk ingredient being used. Lactose is the problem for most people with IBS, but not all milk products contain a lot of lactose (Butter, parmesan, sharp cheddar, etc). However, I know trader Joe’s gluten free crispy crunchy oatmeal cookies are not low fodmap because they have milk and molasses.

    • I thought I would add that trader Joe’s gluten free crispy crunchy chocolate chip cookies don’t contain milk, but do have molasses from the brown sugar, so I would suggest to limiting yourself to two cookies. I know eating more than two would make me sick! I can’t binge on snack food anymore when I watch Netflix. 😔

  9. Best lactose-free, all-natural ice cream on the planet is made by Minus The Moo out of Massachusetts. Started by two young women with lactose intolerance, their LF-free milk and cream come from a Berkshires dairy and their product is light years ahead of Lactaid, in both taste and texture. This has been life-changing for my son and our family fave is the Sea Salt Chocolate Chip. We also make homemade LF ice cream using Organic Valley Lactose-Free Half & Half.

  10. My nutritionist told me that sprouted grain breads work for a low fodmap diet. I eat them all of the time and they are a million times better than gluten free. Trader Joe’s has a nice variety of these breads: whlole grains, rye & cinnamon raisin. I love them all. Hope this helps others.

  11. Udi’s white bread, Garofolo’s Gluten Free pasta, Catelli gluten free as well as rice pastas, White Corn tortillas (no wheat), Cheerio’s, Gluten free Rice-Crispies, Natures Path Pumpkin Spice Waffles and best of all Spiffy Monkey Do Banana Bread. The Banana Bread is my go to morning snack and has all good ingredients like coconut milk and oil. I am sensitive to cows milk (even lactose free, I didn’t begin to have good results with the low fodmap diet until I cut out milk and yogurt, I still eat hard cheeses in moderation.) I drink Silk unsweetened Vanilla flavoured Almond milk. Kettle half-fat potato chips are also a go to snack. Also love Mutti’s Passata and Unico Marzano-type tomatoes for making pasta sauces. I also use kellogs corn flake crumbs to replace wheat crumbs. I will eat 85% coco chocolate, low sugar though only small amounts as it is listed as high fodmap.
    Some of these may have ingredients you are sensitive to so check ingredients when in the elimination phase. I am currently in the reintroduction phase.
    All of these are available in Ontario, Canada.

  12. I had never heard of Abigail’s Bakery before so I went to their website. Unfortunately, they add agave nectar to their Millet and Sweet Brown Rice Loaf. I understood that agave was high Fodmap, correct?

    • Yes, that’s right. Abigail’s Bakery Millet & Sweet Brown Rice Bread should be taken off the list since it contains agave.

  13. Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

    http://shop.justins.com/Dark-Chocolate-Peanut-Butter-Cups/p/JNB-000254&c=Justins@PeanutButterCups

    Found at Whole Foods and Starbucks.

    Ingredients: Organic Dark Chocolate (Organic Evaporated Cane Sugar, Organic Chocolate Liquor, Organic Cocoa Butter*, Organic Soy Lecithin, Organic Vanilla), Organic Peanuts, Organic Powdered Evaporated Cane Sugar, Organic Peanut Flour, Organic Palm Fruit Oil, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Vanilla Flavor, Sea Salt, Organic Soy Lecithin.

  14. Ooh I think this tomato sauce is low – FODMAP. I can eat it at least. Check it out!

    Rao’s Sensitive Formula Marinara Sauce

    Plus I prefer to stay away from corn all together so I really enjoy trader Joe’s gluten free bread and bagels rather than Udi’s 🙂

    • Yes, Rao’s sensitive formula is great! It doesn’t contain garlic or onion, commonly found in regular (high fodmap) pasta sauces. Keep to a half-cup serving which is the recommended fodmap serving size for canned tomatoes.
