Low FODMAP Slaw & Wild Salmon

This recipe has been designed to minimise FODMAPs to aid digestion for those who have a sensitive gut. 

Low FODMAP foods exclude things that are fermentable (to reduce gas), oligosaccharides (e.g. wheat, rye, onions, garlic and legumes), disaccharides (lactose found in milk and soft cheeses), monosaccharides (fructose found in fruit) and polyols (some artificial sweeteners).

Salmon is extremely nutrient-dense and provides heaps of bioavailable protein, omega 3, vitamins B3, B12, D and E, calcium, phosphorus and selenium.  The slaw rounds out the micronutrient profile with vitamins B6, A, C and K1 along with iron, manganese and potassium.  


One serve provides 260 calories, 25 g protein, 12 g fat, 10 g of net carbs and P:E = 1.1.
