At that time, I had asked a few Australians which gluten-free and wheat-free bread they liked. As the low-FODMAP diet changes and more brands are becoming certified low-FODMAP, I will be updating posts to reflect those changes and keep you the consumer in the loop!
The list below (scroll down) under where it says OLD POST – includes the Australians choices in 2015 but they are not certified low-FODMAP. I will still keep the old information below in place for those who have finished all phases of the low-FODMAP diet, who know their FODMAP threshold and can handle the only high-FODMAP in question in some of the bread listed, which is: soy flour. The FODMAP friendly program gave 50 grams of soy flour a FAIL rating.
To update my post, here are the certified low-FODMAP bread products that you can buy in Australia. The following have been certified low-FODMAP by the FODMAP Friendly Program.
Certified low-FODMAP bread brands you can buy now in Australia
Alpine Breads – “Our bread is produced by a slow sourdough fermentation process that has been in our family since the early 1930s. This processing reduces the levels of FODMAPs (specifically fructans) because the fructans are used by the yeasts and lactobacilli during fermentation. The grains in our bread have also been sprouted which people find easier to digest”. Spelt & Barley, Spelt & Sprouted Grains, Sour Rye.
Bakers Delight – Whole Grain Low-FODMAP Loaf. Bakers Delight can be found in more than 700 locations across Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand.
Genius Gluten Free – pita bread, crumpets, soft rolls and sandwich loaves.

Here in the U.S., it seems as though we have plenty more to choose from when it comes to foods that are wheat free, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free – free of many things! So when I heard some of our FODMAP Life fans in Australia say they were having trouble finding some decent brands of wheat free, gluten free breads, I started asking around.
Here is what I found – click on the links for more information about where to buy and find these breads.
