  2. About Low FODMAP

I thought Garlic and Onion was not low FODMAP?

We understand that garlic and onion can be a factor for many issues but we have had amazing results with our infused oils which are included in a lot of our meals. 


Garlic-infused oil and the low FODMAP diet

Our garlic-infused oil offers delicious flavor while still complying to the low FODMAP elimination diet guidelines. Many of our customers are grateful to be able to enjoy garlic flavor and not experience any digestive issues! Because FODMAPs are water-soluble, and water and oil do not mix (Science 101), adding garlic to oil to infuse the flavor  and then removing the garlic flesh will not allow the water-soluble fructans (a type of FODMAP) to leach into the oil. As always, before altering your diet or trying new foods, such as Epicured low FODMAP and gluten free meals, speak with your healthcare provider.  

As a reminder, the low FODMAP elimination diet is not a FODMAP-free diet. The goal of this science-based diet is to reduce the amount of FODMAPs to a level that provides symptomatic relief. Most low FODMAP grains, fruits, and vegetables have small amounts of FODMAPs but are allowed in specific portion levels to comply with the low FODMAP elimination diet guidelines.


To further assist, we also provide a IBD filter on the menu page that only displays menu items that have a much lower chance of further affecting stomach issues and are easier to digest. We have identified certain entrees, side dishes and beverages that may be easier to digest due to their softer textures and lighter ingredients.


We also recommend speaking with your nutritionist if you want to be sure as we value your health above all. 


Please note: these are only suggestions as individuals tolerate ingredients differently. These guidelines should help you navigate the menu when your symptoms increase.
