Allergy: Neither gluten- or lactose-free. For a gluten-free option substitute with gluten-free macaroni and use gluten-free flour for the white sauce.  Similarly easy to make lactose free by using lactose-free milk. High FODMAP is due to macaroni, milk and onions. If you are using gluten-free macaroni, lactose-free milk and spelled flour as well as skip the onions you will get a low FODMAP. You can add onion flavour by using a little dried ramson onion in the sauce, and use the green part of spring onion.
