What bread to use to make this Low FODMAP Tuna Salad Sandwich?
For this sandwich, I used this gluten-free wholesome white loaf bread from Schar. This bread is certified to be low FODMAP under the Monash University. However, you can also use different gluten-free bread.
* FODMAP Tips:
*According to Monash Unieristy apples are low FODMAP in 20g per serving. This recipe uses ½ an apple which is approximately around 60g (depending on the apple that you are using) however the salad yields 3 portions/servings which is 20g per serving. If you don't like apples you can easily omit it. I love adding apple because it gives freshness and sweetness to the salad.
*If you are buying a gluten-free bread that is not certified to be low FODMAP, make sure to check the label, as there can be hidden FODMAPs.
*As a general rule always read the labels of the ingredients that you use as there can be sneaky FODMAP’s in any product. To educate yourself on which foods are high in FODMAP’s I’d strongly recommend downloading Monash Unversity FODMAP Diet App
