Grocery Items

Healthy Fats

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is low FODMAP in one tablespoon. It also has a high smoke point, making it a great alternative to olive oil for high heat cooking.

BulletProof Brain Octane

Several of my clients have found this to be helpful in mitigating brain fog. You can add it to your morning coffee, tea or smoothie.

Beef Tallow

Beef tallow, from 100% grass fed cows, has a smoke point of 400 degrees Fahrenheit and is a good option for frying, searing or sautéing.

Let’s Do Organic Coconut Cream

Coconut cream is healthy fat that gives a slightly sweet taste and creaminess to recipes.

Native Forest Coconut Milk

Native Forest “Simple” Coconut Milk doesn’t contain gums. Trader Joe’s also offers coconut milk without gums.

Nutiva Coconut Oil

Nutiva coconut oil is organic and non-gmo. Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride (MCT), which is easily absorbed.

Duck Fat

This duck fat is from pasture raised ducks, making for a healthier duck fat. If you’re trying to add delicious, healthy fat into your diet, start here! Duck fat makes delicious scrambled eggs, as well as just about everything else.

Garlic Gold Garlic Oil 

I love the taste of Garlic Gold and it's one of the recommended brands that is noted in this article on Garlic Oils. 

Grass Fed Ghee

If you don’t have time to make ghee at home, this is a great option too! Many people, including myself, who don’t tolerate other dairy products, still tolerate ghee.

Kerrygold Unsalted Grass Fed Butter

Kerrygold butter is made from grass fed cows that are free of growth hormones. Salted Kerrygold is available at Costco.

Protein Powder, Collagen & Gelatin

Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate

Collagen is very healing for those who tolerate it. I add it to coffee, smoothies or water.

Great Lakes Gelatin

Gelatin can be used for gummy recipes or to thicken compotes. It can be very healing to those who tolerate it.

Marine Collagen

This collagen is a great option for pescatarians or anyone who prefers a marine sourced protein.

Pumpkin Protein Powder

This is a great option for vegetarians or vegans who need more protein in their diet. Try adding it to your morning smoothie.

Vinegars

Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has so many uses, from food to cleaning. I love that Bragg’s is organic.

Rice Wine Vinegar

Rice wine vinegar is low FODMAP in 2 tablespoons. The ingredients in this vinegar include rice vinegar and water. Read labels because some vinegars include other ingredients like sugar.

Nuts & Nut Butters

Barney Butter Almond Butter

This almond butter is made in a peanut-free facility. It’s also made from blanched almonds (skinless) so it will be a bit easier to digest then almond butters that incorporate the skin of the almond.

Anna & Sarah Blanched Slivered Almonds

These almonds are a delicious topping on side salads or smoothie bowls.

Pecan Butter

Homemade pecan butter is my guilty pleasure but if you’re dealing with time constraints or don’t have a food processor, this is the next best thing.

Peanut Butter

Most people have a hard time digesting peanut butter since peanuts are legumes. I generally recommend people try walnut, almond or pecan butters as they tend to be easier to digest. But if you do well with peanut butter then I recommend one like this without added oils or sugar.

Sunflower Seed Butter

Sunflower seed butter is a welcome alternative to those with nut allergies or whom have an easier time digesting seeds than nuts.

Walnut Butter

Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Just 1/4 cup of walnuts will give you with a full day supply of your omega 3 fatty acids.

Seasonings

Coconut Aminos

Cococnut aminos are a common substitution for soy sauce or tamari.

Frontier Org Cinnamon Sticks

Cinnamon sticks are wonderful in drinks and are always in my spice rack.

Kiva Vanilla Powder

This vanilla powder smells delicious and adds beautiful brown flecks to gummies or baked goods.

Organic Pure Vanilla Extract

This vanilla extract includes vanilla bean extractives in alcohol and doesn’t contain any sugar or other superfluous ingredients.

Organic Italian Herbs

I add Italian herbs to many of my recipes as it’s an easy way to add savory flavor if you don’t have fresh herbs on hand.

Real Salt Kosher Sea Salt

Real Salt is sea salt with  60+ beneficial trace minerals. It’s available in fine and kosher – which refers to the salt grain size.

Starwest Botanicals Malabar Whole Black Pepper

Freshly ground pepper always tastes and smells better than pre-ground.

Teas

Blue Lotus Masala Chai Tea

This yummy powder can be added to milk for a chai tea or to coffee for a “dirty chai”.

Ginger Tea

Ginger is very warming and can be helpful for alleviating nausea.

Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder

Matcha green tea powder can be used on it’s own to make a green tea latte or in Matcha Green Tea Gummies.

Numi Organic Jasmine Green Tea

Organic Jasmine green tea is delicious on it’s own and also shines in a Jasmine Lime Cooler.

Grains/Bread-Like Products

Bob’s Red Mill White Rice Flour

White rice flour is a helpful alternative for those who tolerate rice but don’t do as well with coconut or almond. It will contain resistant starch, which will bother some people, but I have found that many people tolerate it.

Gluten Free White Basmati Rice Noodles

White rice is low FODMAP and is recommended to anyone who needs more carbohydrates in their SIBO diet. If you tolerate white rice, it’s likely you’ll tolerate it in other forms, such as rice noodles or white rice flour. Per the seller’s page, the only ingredient in this is Basmati White Rice (and water I assume!).

NUCO Organic Coconut Wraps

These wraps contain coconut meat (low FODMAP in 1/2 cup), coconut water (low FODMAP in 100mL) and coconut oil. About 50% of my clients do well with coconut. For those who tolerate coconut products, this will be a helpful way to replace bread or tortillas.

Sweeteners

Clover Honey

Honey is listed as high FODMAP (fructose specifically) but Dr. Siebecker researched a variety of honeys and found clover, alfalfa, cotton and raspberry honeys to be low fermentable because of their glucose/fructose ratios. I typically recommend clover honey as it's easy to find. Even though it would normally be healthier to eat raw honey, many of my clients don't tolerate it as well.

Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is low FODMAP and is well tolerated by many of my clients. This particular maple syrup might be a bit of a splurge but it's pure, certified organic, gluten free and vegan. No matter where you buy maple syrup, check the ingredients to make sure it doesn't have any additives.

Organic Sucanant

Sucanant is dehydrated cane sugar that doesn’t go through all the chemical processing that sugar normally does. It is darker in color and has a molasses taste to it but can be used in recipes that  call for white sugar. Sugar is low FODMAP.

Stevia

Inulin free Stevia is low FODMAP and is an approved sweetener on Dr. Siebecker’s SIBO Specific Food Guide (SSFG) and the Bi-Phasic Diet.

Other

Viva Naturals Cacoa Powder

Cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans, which leaves the enzymes in the cocoa and helps them retain their high antioxidant content. So for recipes that call for cocoa, feel free to use cacao. Two heaped teaspoons of either is low FODMAP.

Freeze Dried Organic Strawberries

Though I wouldn’t recommend a whole bag at once (as the packaging says a bag is one serving), a small handful makes a great on-the-go snack.

Line Caught Sardines

Sardines are packed with protein, bone building Vitamin D and are one of the most concentrated sources of omega 3 fatty acids.

Primal Kitchen Mayonnaise

This mayonnaise is made with SIBO friendly ingredients including avocado oil.

Let’s Do Organic Finely Shredded Coconut

This unsweetened shredded coconut can be used to make your own coconut milk. About 50% of the people I see tolerate coconut.
