Fodbods FAQ's

What are Fodbods bars? 

Fodbods are the first certified FODMAP friendly snack bars in Australia! They're convenient, delicious, filling and you can trust they won't give you a tummy ache or bloating :)

What's so special about Fodbods bars?

  • Low FODMAP: Fodbods are certified FODMAP friendly, which means that, unlike many other bars, they won't give you a tummy ache or bloating. 
  • 100% Natural: Made from 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 sweeten them with 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: 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 – support local ;) 

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 bars on the low FODMAP diet? Yes, you can eat Fodbods through all stages of the low FODMAP diet. But please note, Fodbods have been certified by the FODMAP Friendly Food Company for the recommended serving size only.

How should I store Fodbods? The bars should be stored in a cool, dry place. If you're lucky to live somewhere tropical and warm, it might be worth storing them in the fridge to maintain their 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 – it's all healthy and good. You can either wipe it off or enjoy it :)

What's the shelf life of Fodbods bars? Fodbods have a best before shelf life of 12 months from manufacture. 

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? Firstly, Fodbods bars contain nuts – some flavours have peanuts, others have almonds. You should also be aware that they're made in a shared facility that processes sesame seeds.

Is pea protein FODMAP friendly? 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 FODMAP friendly as they have been independently tested and certified. Here's a great article on the topic, if you're interested – https://www.fodmapeveryday.com/is-pea-protein-low-fodmap/.

Is soy protein FODMAP friendly? 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.
