Low FODMAP servings per meal:
- Commom cabbage 2,65oz|75g (fructans). Recipe calls for same quantity.

- Canned chickpeas 1,48oz|42g (GOS). Recipe calls for same quantity.
FODMAP experts advise to limit servings of related FODMAPs to 1.5 servings per sitting (3 hours). This means, if you want to eat two foods from the same FODMAP group, you can have one serving of one and half a serving of the other. It's the case of fructans in this recipe. Remember, stacking only occurs in foods that come from the same FODMAP group. This means if you have a safe portion of fructans and a safe portion of GOS, they won’t stack on you. You can eat all this salad without problems.
*Even if a small serving of brussels sprouts is low fodmap, avoid them if they don't agree with you.
