You can now top up your protein intake while following a FODMAP diet with the help of That Protein.
The brand has become the first FODMAP Friendly certified protein powder in the UK with its Blissful Raw Cacao Organic Super Protein, following a rigorous laboratory tested evaluation process. It is made with a blend of organic plant protein and organic raw cacao and can be bought in good health food stores.
Low FODMAP is an acronym for low fermentable, oligosaccharides (fructans and GOS), disaccharides (lactose), monosaccharides (fructose) and polyols. The diet has been designed to help people with a medical diagnosis of IBS.
That Protein is an award-winning nutrition company headed by vegan entrepreneur, Darlene McCormick. In 2019, the Blissful Raw Cacao was voted best in the UK at the prestigious Nourish Awards.
Darlene explained: “At any one time in the UK, around 10-20 per cent of people are suffering with IBS. With our FODMAP Friendly certification, people can be assured that they can enjoy That Protein’s Blissful Raw Cacao Plant Protein safely on the low FODMAP diet, whilst supporting their fitness and wellness goals.”
Tim Mottin, Director of the FODMAP Friendly Food program, added: “We’re pleased to partner with That Protein to certify an innovative FODMAP Friendly product for those with digestive issues following the low FODMAP diet. This is the first protein powder product to be certified in the UK under our certification program and we’re excited to see the number of UK-based products continue to grow.”
