Low FODMAP Diet Opinion/thoughts
Posted 20 November 2010 - 04:45 PM
If aduki/adzuki beans are fermented into MISO, are the sugars in them that would otherwise bother me (fodmap) be already digested up by the bacterias in the miso. This is soy free miso, and gluten free miso. I am trying it out to see how I do on it, I just wondered what you all thought about it. Logically, it seems that miso would be okay on low fodmap - okay as the only way to eat beans. Also, if fermenting does eat sugars, couldn't fermenting other veggies that are off limits also make them back on limits? Hmmmmmm.
Also, why does the low fodmap diet lady say you can eat peanuts when they are a legume? Seems odd to me. I don't really go with the book; rather just got a list of the foods online and eliminated them all - have not officially added any back but have noticed right away with garlic, onions, and beans, the times I did "cheat".
Thanks for your thoughts.

I asked the people at the yahoo group about the best legumes to try, and they suggested red lentils, soaked overnight in water and a little bicarb soda. This brings the level of raffinose, the problem sugar, down a lot. This is verified by testing the raffinose before and after testing, so it's well worth trying.
I'm not sure about peanuts specifically, but if you are talking about Sue Shepherd then her recommendations are based on testing the foods, so I would always trust her if you have conflicting information.
From my reading it is possible to be sensitive to some but not all fructans, the only way to know for sure is to test it out. There are still plenty of veggies left that you can eat for fibre, so I would check out the latest list from Sue Shepard and try to increase the allowed veggies.
