Is Popcorn Low FODMAP?

Popcorn is the ultimate movie snack. Theaters around the world over offer it every time you go to see a movie. But when you have IBS, you need to watch what you eat, avoid foods that you know to cause a flare up of symptoms. So, one of the questions you may have when you start this diet is which foods are low FODMAP. Is popcorn low FODMAP? You’ll probably be very glad to know that popcorn is low FODMAP. People with IBS can tolerate one serving of popcorn which is 1 packet or 7 cups.

IBS sufferers can eat plain popcorn, and many will probably be able to eat a small serving of cinema popcorn, but if you’re making your own at home, you might want to add a bit of flavour.
