If you are interested in boosting your protein intake with protein powder, finding one that is low fodmap is a minefield! I have tried and tested many different types and the best option is one that is based on brown rice with minimal ingredients, avoiding lactose, artificial sugars and wheat. For example, if you are looking at a product that says it is vanilla flavoured protein, the ingredients should read something like this:
Organic Wholegrain Brown Rice (Sprouted, Bio-Fermented, Raw), Natural Vanilla, Pectin, Stevia
I will be honest: the taste is not for everyone, but it is worth trying, persevering and you should get used to it.
I went through a stage of making protein smoothies with berries for snacks (I mentioned in a previous post how difficult I find snacking on the low fodmap diet) but lately my bucket of protein powder has just been gathering dust on top of my fridge…. I am not running as much as I have in the past, and so just less hungry. I am also eating more meat/eggs-based protein at breakfast too.
Anyhoo, I digress! This is my best suggestion for low fodmap protein powders – have fun and let me know if you find any that you love…
