Flaxseeds a FODMAP??

I've just come across this article: eat-real-food-paleodietitia.... Half way down it says that "flax seeds are high FODMAP".

I cannot find this stated anywhere else. Other web pages say it is fine on a FODMAP diet.

Does anyone out there know?

Really hoping the above site has it wrong .

  • Everything i have seen says it is fine. Monash who developed Fodmap have a lovely recipe using flaxseed oil so i would think it is good.

    I use it on my porridge and in casseroles.

  • I find it too stimulating but not stimulating enough to bring about a bm, so I use it sparingly and use flaxseed oil instead.

  • Agree with you there PatV, i would definitely recommend the flaxseed oil and use the seeds sparingly.

  • Thanks guys will try that.

  • Don't know the link seems to be broken? peerdiagnosis.com/symptoms-...

  • Flax seeds and linseeds are the same thing and Monash says linseeds are low FODMAP and perfectly okay.

  • Thanks Roz...still waiting for android version!
