If there’s one question we get more than any other it’s: which foods are high FODMAP? Unsurprising, as this is an increasingly confusing topic with plenty of conflicting information. Here are the most common, high FODMAP foods. This is by no means an exhaustive list. You can find our full, most up-to-date list of food’s FODMAP content in our simple FODMAP challenge.
List of high FODMAP foods
- Spring onion
- Snow peas
Grains & cereals
- Wholemeal bread
- Rye bread
- Wheat pasta
- Cereals containing wheat
Legumes & pulses
- Red kidney beans
- Split peas

Nuts & seeds
Sugars & sweeteners
- High fructose corn syrup
- Many artificial sweeteners, read more on that in our guide to sugar and other sweeteners for IBS.
While a list of low and high FODMAP foods can help, it might not always be the most up to date information as foods are constantly being tested and retested in different forms.
For this reason, our favourite resource to recommend is easily the Monash Uni App, available from iTunes or Google Play. It has a comprehensive list of foods, indicating FODMAP content, along with some recipes and information about FODMAPs. The app is updated as new research is done meaning you always have the most up to date info on hand.
Another super useful app is FODMAP Friendly, available on iTunes and Google Play. This comes from the guys who test foods for FODMAP content and includes more information, particularly about packaged foods.
