Love Feijoas? They are HIGH in FODMAPsLeave a Comment
As recently reported by the researchers at the Monash University FODMAP laboratory, the team recently completed the testing of feijoas which contain high amounts of excess fructose!
“Our team has received many requests from dietitians in New Zealand about the FODMAP content of the popular fruit, otherwise known as the pineapple guava”.
The feijoa fruit is green, and around the size of an egg. It is sweet, and aromatic in flavor and has a juicy flesh. It can be found in southern Brazil (where my husband grew up!), areas of Colombia, Uruguay, Paraguay as well as northern Argentina. Feijoas are also grown throughout Azerbaijan , Georgia, Russia (Sochi) and New Zealand.
|An overall rating of RED||FODMAP RATING|
|Feijoa – 1 serve (2 small feijoas) 100grams ( 3.5 ounces)||HIGH|
|Feijoa – ½ serve (1 small feijoa) 50 grams ( 1.7 ounces)||HIGH|
“The serving sizes specified here contain high amounts of excess fructose and intake should be avoided if you malabsorb fructose. Avoid large servings (> 3 small feijoas, 150gm) which also contain high amounts of the Oligos -fructans. Feijoas should be avoided by people with IBS if they malabsorb fructose. Large quantities of feijoas should be avoided by all individuals with IBS.”
