Fodbods FAQ's

What are Fodbods? 

Fodbods are delicious health bars made from natural and organic ingredients. They're vegan, gluten free and certified FODMAP friendly

What's so special about Fodbods? - Well, everything ;) But to break it down:

  • FODMAP Friendly: Fodbods are certified FODMAP friendly, which means that, unlike many other health bars, they won't give you a tummy ache or bloating. 
  • 100% Natural: Made from simple natural and organic ingredients. No preservatives and nothing artificial.

  • High in Protein: Fodbods are surprisingly high in protein. The bigger bars have ~15g of protein and the mini bars have ~9g. 
  • Not too sweet: Fodbods aren't high in sugar. We add just a bit of organic rice malt syrup.
  • Gluten Free: Fodbods have been laboratory tested gluten free so

    they're suitable for those with Coeliac disease.

  • Vegan friendly: Fodbods 100% plant based because (a) we love animals; (b) we love the planet; and (c) energy derived from plants makes you feel fantastic!
  • Non-GMO: No toxic chemicals, no hormones. Just real ingredients, as they're meant to be!

Where are Fodbods made? Fodbods are made in Australia just outside of Byron Bay.

What's the FODMAP diet? As many as 1 in 5 people suffer from IBS and the low FODMAP diet reduces symptoms in 75% of sufferers. You can read more about it in this blog -> "What the FODMAP?!"

    Who should eat Fodbods? We made Fodbods for everyone to enjoy. They are particularly good for:

    • Those with a sensitive tummy
    • People following the vegan diet
    • Busy people who want healthy snacks

    Are Fodbods safe for kids to eat? Fodbods are not harmful to children, however they're not a recommended snack due to them containing concentrated protein powder. 

    How many calories are in Fodbods? The 50g bars have ~200 calories and the 30g bars have ~120 calories. This comes from a balance protein, healthy fats and a bit of sugar.

    How many Fodbods can I eat? Technically, you can eat as many as you want, but we advise sticking to one bar. Fodbods have been independently tested and certified by the FODMAP Friendly Food Company for the recommended serving size only. 

    Is pea protein FODMAP friendly? According to Monash University, pea protein is FODMAP friendly in small (40g) serves. There is less than 10g of pea protein in a 50g Fodbod so you shouldn't get any reactions. 

    Is soy protein FODMAP friendly? Soy can be a bit confusing when it comes to FODMAPs. Soybeans contain oligosaccharides, however most of this is removed during the process of making soy protein. The soy protein isolate used in Fodbods has almost negligible amounts of raffinose and stachyose, which are the high FODMAP components of soy. 

    Are Fodbods gluten free? Yes, we have all of our Fodbods laboratory tested for gluten. They are safe to eat if you have Coeliac disease.

    Why are Fodbods oily? - Fodbods are made with 100% natural nut butters, which can get a bit oily in the heat. Make sure you store Fodbods in a cool, dry place and if you feel like they're too oily, just pop them in the fridge for a bit :)
