Low FODMAP TIPS
Ripe bananas have more natural fructose sugar than unripened bananas, which is an ingredient that is trying to be minimized on a low FODMAP diet. However, unripened bananas could be challenging to digest in some people with certain GI conditions.
Everyone's GI is unique. One ingredient may cause issues for one person while no issues for another. You are the most knowledgeable expert on what does and does not work for your system. So, if you believe the banana in this recipe will be problematic for you, skip it – we promise it will be just as tasty without it!
