The Australian company “Alpine Breads” recently launched a new product, which is suitable to consume as part of the FODMAP Diet. The new Low FODMAP bread is their “Hemp Rising Loaf”. This new IBS friendly product is Low FODMAP Certified by FODMAP Friendly.
This is Alpine Breads’ 5th Low FODMAP Certified product. The other FODMAP Friendly breads are: Sour Rye Sourdough, Tuscany Sourdough, Spelt & Barley Sourdough and Spelt & Sprouted Grains.
FODMAP Friendly, one of the most important FODMAP companies worldwide, recently tested hemp seeds. They were found to be Low FODMAP (in the serving size of 28g). It means that hemp seeds are suitable to consume as part of a FODMAP Diet with limitations.
Hemp seeds has high nutrition benefits, as well as being great for those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome. They are high in omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and high in plant-based protein.
According to Wikipedia, “hemp seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, or made into dried sprout powder. The leaves of the hemp plant can be consumed raw in salads. Hemp can also be made into a liquid and used for baking or for beverages such as hemp milk, hemp juice and tea. Hempseed oil is cold-pressed from the seed and is high in unsaturated fatty acids”.
“Hemp seeds are a rich source of B vitamins; the dietary minerals manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and iron; and dietary fiber. About 73% of the energy in hempseed is in the form of fats and essential fatty acids, mainly polyunsaturated fatty acids, linoleic, oleic, and alpha-linolenic acids”.
The new Low FODMAP bread is available to purchase at the Australian supermarket chains Coles and Woolworths. As well as being Low FODMAP, it is also kosher.
