The Australian company “Roza’s Gourmet” recently launched a new Low FODMAP product. The product is “Nut Free Pesto”, which is Low FODMAP and Gluten-Free.
Roza’s Gourmet offers a few Low FODMAP products, all of them are self-claimed Low FODMAP. Meaning they do not have a formal certification from either Monash University or FODMAP Friendly.
The certification logos of both Monash university and FODMAP Friendly are applied to products that are scientifically tested to be low in FODMAPs.
Roza’s Gourmet new Pesto is made from all-natural ingredients and is onion and garlic free. According to the company “the pesto is a perfect low-allergen addition to enhance all pasta, pizza and vegan dishes”.

IBS symptoms include abdominal bloating or pain, excess wind, nausea, diarrhoea and constipation (or a combination of both). According to research, the FODMAP Diet, which was created by Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, can help 75% of IBS patients. That is 3 of 4 people who suffer from IBS! In fact, the FODMAP Diet is recognised internationally by leading medical professionals as the best dietary treatment for the management of symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
