To our friends in Norway with questions about fresh wild berries.
While we do not have these types of wild berries available in Australia, a friend and colleague- Leena Putkonen (from Finland) - has visited our team with small samples of freeze-dried, ground versions of some of them.
Please note that these analysis are preliminary (we need to analyse more samples before the information will appear in our app).
Second, note that 1 tablespoon or 9g of dried cranberry (is equivalent to around 130gram fresh berries).
The results of our preliminary FODMAP analysis suggests that:
Bilberry and Lingonberry appear to be low in FODMAP.
Because everyone tolerates foods differently it is important to find your own ‘tolerance level’. Therefore please use this information as a guide only.
Happy summer berry picking from the Monash FODMAP team!
