Food intolerance and allergies
Potatoes can be used in the following exclusion diets:
- Gluten free
- Wheat free
- Dairy free
- Egg free
- Nut free
- Low chemical [white peeled potatoes]
- Moderate chemical
- Low FODMAP
Care needs to be taken that intolerant foods are not added to potatoes during preparing, cooking and serving. We recommend people following exclusion diets consult a Dietitian for an individualised eating plan.
The low FODMAP diet was developed in 1999 by Australian, Dr Sue Shepherd, and has been shown to help 3 out of 4 people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome [IBS].
Potatoes can be included on a low FODMAP diet. It is estimated IBS could effect 15% of the population.
