New FODMAP findings regarding broccoli and broccolini

November 25, 2017

Monash University recently reported about new findings regarding FODMAPs in both broccoli and broccolini. The university’s labs tested broccolini and re-tested broccoli and found some interesting results.

 

The information was divided into three categories: the whole vegetable, heads only and stalks only.

 

 

 

In one cup serve, broccoli as a whole vegetable is low FODMAP; the heads only are also low FODMAP; however, the stalks by themselves are high FODMAP.

 

In one cup serve, broccolini as a whole vegetable is high FODMAP; the heads only are also high FODMAP; however, the stalks by themselves are low FODMAP.

 

The main issue with both broccoli and broccolini is excess fructose, so take that into consideration when adding those vegetables into your dishes.
