Low FODMAP homemade sweet chili sauce

Before I started on the low FODMAP-diet, I used to use sweet chili sauce on everyhing.

I’ve tried sweet chili sauce many times and it ends, unfortunately, always…. in the toilet. 🙂 . I gave up and thought my “sweet chili” moments was gone forever, until recently.

I found several recipes online, took away the garlic, added some other ingredients, a little less of something, a little more of something and ended up with a  low FODMAP homemade sweet chili sauce that was amazingly good!

To make this Low FODMAP homemade sweet chili sauce you need:

50 g./1,75 oz. water

50 g./1,75 oz. rice vinegar

35 g. /1,25 oz. sugar

20 g./0,7 oz. tomato-puré

1 tsp. soy sauce

1/2 tsp. lime juice (can be dropped)

Some juice from fresh ginger

Chili: either or both powder and flaky. How much? Use your own taste and see how spicy you want the sauce to be!


30 g./1 oz. water

12 g./0,4 oz. maizena/cornstarch


Boil water, sugar, vinegar, tomato-puré, soy sauce, chili and lime juice.

While the sauce is simmering: Mix water and maizena. Put the sauce away from the oven and add the mixture of water-maizena. Put the sauce back to the oven and bring it to boil. Let it simmer until the sauce has thickened.

Cool the sauce down and put it in the refridgerator.

TIP: Use a garlic press to squeeze the ginger!
