This low FODMAP and low fructose jam recipe is super easy to prepare and it's an absolute treat on your morning toast, pancakes, porridge, scones or sponge cake.


  • 500 g strawberries - fresh or frozen
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4-6 tbsp corn sugar/dextrose - or 1-2 tbsp normal sugar or 1 tbsp maple juice
  • 1 tbsp ground chia seeds


  • If using fresh strawberries of larger size half them. If using frozen strawberries just put them in the pan frozen.
  • Combine the strawberries, lemon juice and dextrose (your sweetener of choice) in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil whilst stirring continuously and simmer for 5-10 minutes. If using frozen strawberries let them thaw slowly on medium heat until fully defrosted and then simmer for a few minutes until they are soft. Allow for some of the juice to evaporate.
  • Turn down the heat and mash the strawberries with a spoon, fork or a potato masher until you reach the preferred consistency of the jam. If a smooth texture is what you are looking for puree with an immersion blender.
  • Add the ground chia seeds.
  • Note: You can skip the chia seeds. The jam then might have a bit more liquid than commercial jams. This is because the chia seeds help to thicken the jam similar to the pectin in commercial jams.
  • Transfer the jam to a clean sealed jar. Let cool and keep in the fridge for up to a week or store in the freezer for later use.
