    1. Hi Mimi,
      The rice flour is probably the best choice, as our all-purpose gluten-free flour is essentially a brown rice flour blend with some starch. Almond flour and coconut flour would likely be high-FODMAP in a portion size this recipe calls for. Good luck!

  1. This batter is so light! Hard to believe everything is low fodmap. Made the tartar sauce too and they were great ?

    1. Perfect!!
      Jaime you made our day shine with your comments and review. Stay in touch. Thank you so much!

  2. Lemon loaf in Canada

    Do you not ship any of your products to Canada?

    Tried your lemon loaf and give it 5 stars. My husband asked me if I was saving the loaf for company and when I said no he said “In that case I’ll have another slice.” He loves it. I never cared for lemon baking but your lemon loaf has me planning for more of you lemon recipes. Thanks for all your recipes. I will be trying you soup tomorrow.

    1. Hi Gwen,
      Thanks for the question! We are hoping to be able to ship to Canada soon.
      As for lemon recipes, we agree that our lemon loaf is the best! We have many other low-FODMAP lemon recipes for you to try as well. Homemade always tastes SO much better than what you buy at the store.
      Stay in touch!!
