December 2017 update: Check out my more recent post on the best low-FODMAP breads in Canberra too.
If you’re not Coeliac too, you’re lucky, because you can eat spelt sourdough bread. Spelt sourdough still has gluten in it, but fructans, the real villain for low-FODMAPpers, has been broken down significantly during the fermentation process. This means that while it has a different flavour to wheat sourdough, the gluten gives it the same texture. Much better than rubbery, crumbly gluten free breads!
So where can you find spelt sourdough in Canberra?
My favourite loaves are from Autolyse bakery in Braddon. They’re available at the bakery every day, usually by 8am.
It’s not cheap at $9 per loaf, but I just make sure I freeze leftovers after 3 days so I can get the most out of it.
Another decent option is the official low-FODMAP certified bread from Naturis.
I buy mine from the Ainslie IGA, but I’ve seen it in stock at the Yarralumla IGA. Last time I checked, fresh loaves are delivered every Thursday.
Very similar to the Autolyse loaf, but with shorter, wider slices is the Sonoma spelt sourdough loaf.
