    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? - Fodbods don't contain any gluten, however they are manufactured in a shared facility.

    Why are Fodbods oily? - Fodbods are made with 100% natural nut butters, which are inherently oily. In the heat, the oil separates - imagine a jar of natural peanut butter that has been sitting on the shelf. 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 :)
