Are yellow bell peppers low FODMAP?
Yes, yellow bell peppers are considered low FODMAP. FODMAPs are types of carbohydrates that some people have difficulty digesting, leading to gastrointestinal symptoms. According to Monash University, a leader in FODMAP research, a serving of a medium bell pepper (capsicum) at 52g is considered low in FODMAPs. Therefore, they can be included in a Low FODMAP diet which may be beneficial for individuals with digestive issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
