Notes

Low FODMAP safe serving:
  • Cucumber, ginger and strawberries are FODMAP free.
  • Mint and basil leaves are low FODMAP.
  • We can drink up to 8.82oz | 250ml of lime juice and 4.41oz | 125ml of lemon juice. The recipe calls for 4.41oz | 125ml of one or the other and is therefore safe.
  • Pineapple is limited to 4.94oz | 40g per meal, the same amount as in the recipe.
  • We can consume up to a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, and the recipe only calls for 1 teaspoon.
  • Sugar is not an issue in the low FODMAP diet.
We can then drink the full amount of each agua fresca without any problems.
