Foodbuy Supplier Showcase 2023 — Meet Fodbods

Naturally delicious, gut-friendly snacks

Fodbods was created by Melbourne-based Vanessa Hutchinson to fill a big gap in the market for wholesome snacks that don’t cause digestive discomfort.

With a busy corporate career, Vanessa was frequently eating on the go. She found that every snack she tried caused stomach aches and bloating, which made it hard to function optimally.

This predicament is incredibly common – in fact, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects up to 30% of the population. Consulting a dietitian revealed that the cause of Vanessa’s symptoms was FODMAPs – a group of carbohydrates found in a wide range of foods, especially protein bars. Upon eliminating FODMAPs from her diet, Vanessa’s symptoms resolved. This is the case for 75% of IBS sufferers.

Vanessa soon realised there was a distinct lack of healthy, low FODMAP snacking options on the market. This made it challenging for the millions of people with gut issues to eat on the go.

Fodbods was created to address this issue. They provide a delicious and nutritious snack that people can enjoy confidently, knowing they’ll feel fantastic afterwards.
