Hello. Hope you are all feeling well. I have recently had a few things happen in life where a meal bar would really have come in handy. I normally eat whole foods and bring bananas if i need to leave the house abruptly etc. I have just tried a few meal bars that don’t agree with me because of high fodmap ingredients.

If any of you knowledgeable people out there have any suggestions in brands that are available online that would be fantastic.

I am allergic to soy, hazelnuts, celery, lactose, apples. High fodmap foods don’t go down well.

Maybe keto based bar without sugars? Julian Bakery is my go to, I also use Bhu Keto Bars and a few others. Do see the type of protein used. Some use plant base which makes some people gassy or do not tolerate like sancha inchi, or pea, others use more stomach-friendly egg whites (bad texture) or pumpkin. They are not all that tasty but warm them up 10 sec in the microwave and they are decent. Perhaps the Sunbutter and egg white bases ones instead of the nut-based ones?
DO NOTE these use isomaltooligosaccharide

A better choice would be to find a stomach friendly protein powder like pumpkin seed or egg white, and mix it in a blender with sunbutter or tolerated fat, water, and a sweetener like stevia or monk fruit. Maybe some tolerated carbs if your a carby. What about hardboiled eggs?   Everything else I can think of is more so off your list like nuts, avocados, dried meats, veggies.
Wondering if you could make a cookie/bar out of sunbutter, eggs, and coconut flour, with stevia?

Hello Ennis_TX thanks for your answer. I will play around with making my own at some point. Nice idea with sunflower butter! hmmmm getting inspired.

Julian bakery don't ship to Switzerland, but you can get them shipped through iherb, I am mentioning this in case it could help someone else who is not in the US or abroad. can't get bhu foods here, but maybe i'll get my dad to ship when he's in South Carolina.

Ennistx is right most protein bars have a "FODMAP" issue.

Their a "No COW" bar that is dairy, gluten and soy free ....but it has a  FODMAP in it .

Try some easy available snack foods like Sun or Pumpkin Seeds . . .and why it/they is/are not particularly healthy pork rinds meets most of your check list. ...at least in the US they are available at most convenient stores (super handy to pickup).... and for me they are diabetic friendly.

I had ignored them until recently .. until Ennis_tx mentioned them in one of his posts.. they are super convenient (though not healthy per se) but they answer your check list.

I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advice.
