Hi there! Welcome to my blog.

My name is Daniela Galea. I am a UK-based registered dietitian working with individuals diagnosed with a range of clinical conditions including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). I am trained on the use of the low FODMAP diet for IBS by Monash University.

I myself was diagnosed with IBS in 2013 and have been actively managing my symptoms since. I have had great results following the clinical proven low FODMAP diet develop by the Monash University.  

I love cooking and baking and try to adapt my most loved recipes to suit my low FODMAP needs. My blog is dedicated to sharing low FODMAP recipes, my experience with IBS, sharing helpful tips and looking into the evidence behind different diets, foods, supplements and tests available!

Nothing brings me more happiness than when a patient comes back reporting an improvement in their symptoms and quality of life! 

I hope you find the blog helpful and I wish you happy browsing.

  1. You mention Quakers Oat So Simple they have a new Cuppa version but in the ingredients it lists semi-skimmed milk powder would be on a no no on Low Fodmap diet.


  2. I have recently been told I have IBS, scouring the internet for low fodmap info and your site is amazing! Thank you for providing so much information, in particular the UK list of foods! I’m printing it out immediately and I’ve signed up to your blog! When you do an update next, can it show what the new additions are so that I can notice these too? Thanks so much!


    1. Thank you I am glad you find it useful 🙂 Since you’re signed up you should receive an e-mail when a new post is up. I will be updating it in the next month.


  3. The foodlist is really helpful because it contains a few ideas I hadn’t thought of.

    I have also been impressed by the range in marks and spencers


    1. Barley malt extract should be safe on the low fodmap diet as it is usually used in small amounts. However it contains gluten and should be avoided if you have been diagnosed with coeliac disease.


  4. Please can you let me know if runner beans are low fodmap. I am fine with French beans but am unsure about runner beans.


    1. Hi Melissa, Yes runner beans are low FODMAP as well. Just limit your portion to about 12 beans. You may find the phone apps Fodmap by fm and the low fodmap Monash university app helpful. You can search for particular foods and the Fodmap by fm app also allows you to scan barcodes making shopping a bit easier.


  5. The list is so helpful and the answers you provide supplement this even further. Thank you so much for taking the time to compile this (and answer everyone’s questions too!)
