Is firm tofu low FODMAP?
Yes, firm tofu is low in FODMAPs. FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols) are a group of carbohydrates that can cause digestive issues in some people. Firm tofu, particularly when it has been drained and pressed, has a low FODMAP content and is generally well-tolerated by individuals who have an issue with FODMAPs. It's important to note, however, that portion size does matter. A recommended serving of firm tofu is about 160 grams or 2/3 cup.
Please note, while tofu is low FODMAP, some marinades or seasonings used in preparing tofu dishes may contain high FODMAP ingredients. Always check ingredients and prepare foods with consideration to your individual dietary needs.
