Ingredients Breakdown & Why It's Low FODMAP:
Chicken: A protein-rich ingredient that is naturally free of FODMAPs, making it suitable for sensitive stomachs.
Tomatoes: While some tomatoes contain fructans (a type of FODMAP), they're considered safe in moderate servings as per the Monash University FODMAP guide.
Eggplant: When consumed in recommended portions, eggplants are low in FODMAPs and won't trigger IBS symptoms.
Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese: Both cheeses are low in lactose, making them more digestible and low FODMAP. The fermenting process breaks down some of the lactose.
Garlic-Infused Olive Oil & Onion-Infused Olive Oil: A genius way to capture the flavor without the FODMAPs. Infusing oil with garlic or onion imparts flavor without the fructans found in the whole versions.
Basil, Oregano, Thyme, White Pepper, Black Pepper, and Paprika: Herbs and spices that add flavor without introducing high FODMAP components.
Egg Whites & Egg Yolks: Eggs are a great source of protein and are FODMAP-free, making them safe for consumption.
Corn Tortillas: Made from organic corn, water, and lime juice, they're a gluten-free and low FODMAP alternative to traditional wheat-based tortillas.
Gluten-Free Rolled Oats: Chosen for their absence of gluten, these oats don't contain the wheat fructans that can cause digestive discomfort.
The thoughtfully curated ingredients ensure that this Chicken & Eggplant Parmigiana dish remains flavorful while being considerate of those with FODMAP sensitivities. It's an ideal combination for anyone seeking a delicious meal that also supports digestive health.
