Explanation:

Eggs are very high in protein and other healthy nutrients.

They don't contain any sugars and are great for you. There's no need to limit egg consumption on a low FODMAP diet.


All FODMAP-related information is based on the research of the Department of Gastroenterology at Monash University.

General Information:

The most commonly consumed eggs are chicken eggs. Other poultry eggs including those of duck and quail also are eaten. Fish eggs are called roe and caviar.

Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline and are widely used in cookery. Due to their protein content, the United States Department of Agriculture formerly categorized eggs as Meats within the Food Guide Pyramid. Despite the nutritional value of eggs, there are some potential health issues arising from cholesterol content, salmonella contamination, and allergy to egg proteins.

Chickens and other egg-laying creatures are kept widely throughout the world and mass production of chicken eggs is a global industry.
