Chia jam has been all the rage for a while now, but on the whole I’ve failed to see the attraction. However, when eating a low FODMAP diet, one of the things you need to watch out for is high FODMAP jams. A low FODMAP jam is a jam which is made with a suitably low FODMAP fruit, such as raspberries or strawberries, and is made with sucrose or glucose syrup. High FODMAP jams have got added fructose, high fructose corn syrup, glucose-fructose syrup, honey, agave syrup, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, maltitol, erythritol and isomalt.
Rhubarb is a really healthy vegetable to incorporate into our diets. It’s a great source of fibre and is packed full of vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins K, C and A, along with B-Vitamins too and iron, potassium and calcium. It’s a great vegetable all round! So, when my Dad gave me another bunch of rhubarb stalks the other day I wasn’t going to refuse the gift and I decided that the best thing to do with them would be to make a jam.
