Did you know that soy protein milk is low FODMAP?
Soy is one of those confusing foods when it comes to FODMAPs. Soy beans and certain soy products are high FODMAP because they contain high levels of galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) – part of the ‘O’ in the FODMAP acronym.
However, we do know that manufacturing processes have an large influence on FODMAP content and can actually result in a final product that is low FODMAP. An example of this is soy protein milk.
Soy protein milk is not the same as regular soy milk. Regular soy milk is made by combining whole soybeans and water, resulting in an end product that is high in GOS. FODMAPs are all types of carbohydrate molecules, so if you isolate the protein from the soy bean, you leave the carbohydrate portion and the FODMAPs behind. Soy protein milk is made by exactly this process.
Why is soy protein milk low FODMAP?
Good thing we’ve tested soy protein milk! At a standard serve size of 250ml (1 cup) per serve, soy milk made from “soy protein isolate” is low in FODMAPs. You can see it listed under the ‘Food List’ in the FODMAP Friendly smartphone App!
Why use soy protein milk?
Soy protein milk is lactose free, dairy free and low FODMAP. Many soy protein milks are also fortified with vitamins, minerals and trace elements important for our health. These include calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, B group vitamins, vitamin A and D. This means that this makes it a great nutritious milk alternative for those of us following a low FODMAP diet.
