Protein is the major dietary contribution of foods in the meat and dairy products group, including meat, fish, poultry, milk and milk products. If beans and lentils were a part of the basic FODMAPS diet, they would appear in this group as well. However, note there are no beans, dried peas or lentils on the allowed list for the basic diet, because they contain large amounts of galactans.
Some dairy products contain large amounts of lactose and are not allowed on the basic diet. Lactaid brand milk and milk products have been specially treated before packaging and are 100 percent lactose free; therefore Lactaid brand milk products are allowed on the basic diet. Other brands of lactase-treated milk may also be available in supermarkets in your area, and are encouraged on the basic diet as a source of protein, calcium and other nutrients. Dairy foods allowed on the basic diet contain 2 grams of lactose or less per serving.
Meat, fish and poultry without added ingredients do not contain FODMAPS.
