low-FODMAP Pad Thai recipe

Enjoy this IBS-friendly twist on an Asian classic

Eating out and following a low-FODMAP diet is much simpler than it used to be, but Thai and other Asian restaurants aren’t always the easiest choices. Many sauces are so complex and elaborate, that it may be tricky to navigate these venues safely.

But take heart!

Our low-FODMAP Pad Thai recipe is rich and peanutty, and (we think) will match any restaurant Pad Thai you have ever had.

Despite the modifications – namely removing FODMAP-containing onions and garlic – this recipe is still packed with the layers of Thai flavour that we love – a perfect balance of sweet, salty, sour, and spicy.

We are pretty sure you and your tummy will love our low-FODMAP Pad Thai, which can be thrown together in less than thirty minutes!

The reality of having IBS isn’t simple, and when it comes to food, it can often mean a process of trial and error to figure out which foods cause the most discomfort. While it’s known that diet can impact the severity of symptoms, there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to what to eat and what to be wary of. Something that helps one person with IBS may not help another.

A low-FODMAP diet can help improve the symptoms of some people with IBS, but it is a challenging diet that can be tough to stick to. While it can play a useful role in figuring out trigger foods, remember that there are other ways to manage IBS symptoms without needing to go all the way to a low-FODMAP diet.

For example, if you struggle with loose stools, you could try a low-fibre diet to start with; if this doesn’t help, you might try a lactose exclusion diet or try avoiding gluten and wheat. If none of those tactics work, then a low-FODMAP diet might be a good option.

Remember that the best foods for IBS depend on your individual symptoms and needs. Not everyone with IBS experiences the same symptoms or with the same intensity.

None of this changes the fact that our Pad Thai recipe is one that should not be missed! We hope you enjoy making it and eating it.
