What are Fodbods?
Fodbods are incredibly delicious healthy snacks that don't cause tummy aches or bloating – hooray!
What's so special about Fodbods? Well, everything! But specifically –
- 100% Natural: Made from natural and organic ingredients. No preservatives and nothing artificial.
- Gluten Free: Fodbods have been laboratory tested gluten free so they're suitable for those with Coeliac disease.
- Vegan: 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!
- Low FODMAP: Fodbods are certified low FODMAP, which means we left out ingredients that often cause gut issues.
- Proudly Aussie owned and made: Fodbods was started in Melbourne in 2019. We source as many ingredients as possible from Australia and all of our products are made locally.
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?!"
Can I eat Fodbods on the low FODMAP diet? Yes, you can eat Fodbods through all stages of the low FODMAP diet. They have been independently tested and certified as low FODMAP in their recommended serving sizes.
How should I store Fodbods? As with most foods, Fodbods products are best stored in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight. If you're lucky to live somewhere tropical and warm, you might like to store your bars in the fridge to maintain shape and texture.
What happens if my bars get a bit oily? Fodbods are made with natural nut butters and some natural separation of the oil can occur (just like jars of natural nut butters). Don't worry if your bars have a bit of oil on them – you can pop them in the fridge for a few minutes, wipe the oil off or simply enjoy it :)
Is Fodbods packaging recyclable? We're very big on the environment here at Fodbods. The wrappers on our bars can be recycled through the soft plastics recycles scheme. The boxes can be recycled through your regular curbside recycling. When you order online, the boxes / satchels are all made from recycled paper and can be recycled. And finally, the packing peanuts in our boxes are made of cornstarch so you can put them in your compost bin! How cool is that?!
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.
What allergens should I be aware of when eating Fodbods? Fodbods protein bars contain nuts – some flavours have peanuts, others have almonds. Our Buddies and Nibbles are allergy friendly but be aware that all products made in a shared facility that processes other allergens.
Is pea protein low FODMAP? There's a bit of confusion around pea protein as some varieties aren't very pure and can be high FODMAP. We only use very pure pea protein in our bars and you can trust that they're low FODMAP as they have been independently tested and certified. Here's a great article on the topic, if you're interested.
Is soy protein low FODMAP? Soy is quite complicated 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 oligosaccharides so it's low FODMAP.
