If you’re struggling with IBS symptoms and want to know what high FODMAP foods to avoid and what low FODMAP foods to eat during the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet, you’ve come to the right place!

If you are new to the low-FODMAP diet, let’s start with a quick review of who might try it and how it works.

Low FODMAP Diet Overview

A FODMAP diet temporarily eliminates certain carbohydrates that are high in FODMAPs. FODMAP stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols. That’s quite a mouthful, right?

In a nutshell, FODMAPs are short-chain carbohydrates and sugar alcohols that are poorly digested or absorbed in the digestive tract. As a result, water gets pulled into the small intestine, leading to gut symptoms such as diarrhea and fermentation in the large intestine, which causes gas and bloating. Other common IBS digestive symptoms include abdominal pain, cramping, and constipation.

The low-FODMAP diet, developed and studied by researchers at Monash University in Australia, has provided symptom relief in up to 75% of IBS patients who try it. (1) There are three phases of the low FODMAP diet: the elimination phase, the reintroduction phase, and the personalization phase or integration phase.

While today’s post will focus on all the delicious low FODMAP fruits you can eat, here’s a quick overview of common foods and food groups that are both high and low in FODMAPs.

Health Benefits of Fruit

Fruit provides essential nutrients, antioxidants, fiber, and polyphenols (eat the rainbow!) for a healthy gut microbiome. Oh, and it’s delicious!

How many servings of fruit you should consume each day depends on your age and gender. However, most adults should aim for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 cups of fruit daily.

High, Moderate, & Low FODMAP Fruits Lists

Printable PDF with lists of low FODMAP fruits and Moderate FODMAP fruits.

I created this list based on the Monash FODMAP app as of February 8, 2023. Please refer to the app regularly, as foods are frequently retested and updated.

In the MONASH app, you may notice that apples and other fruits may be listed as low FODMAP fruits in tiny serving sizes. I have listed them here as high FODMAP, as most people don’t find these amounts realistic serving sizes. Who’s really going to eat just one tablespoon of apricot?! (insert sarcasm-lol!)

Serving sizes are as suggested per the MONASH app and are the recommended amount per meal, not per day.

At the end of the day, you do YOU. So if there are high FODMAP fruits on this list that don’t seem to cause any gi symptoms, please continue to enjoy them!
