FODMAP content of coconut water
The Translational Nutrition research group receives many enquiries about the FODMAP content of coconut water. Recent testing has shown that coconut water, at a standard serving size of 250 ml (8.45 fluid oz), is high in FODMAPs (overall rating is red). The serving size of 250 ml contains high amounts of the Polyol- sorbitol and moderate amounts of the Oligos-fructans. Intake at this serving size should be avoided. Two tables are given below, for respectively a 250 ml and a 100 ml serving size. This information will be added to the next update version of the Monash University Low FODMAP diet app.
