Description

The app Food Intolerances is a tool to help everyone who has to stick to a restricted diet because of food intolerances or allergies. Typical application cases are: histamine intolerance, mastocytosis, fructose malabsorption, sorbitol intolerance, aspirin intolerance, gluten sensitivity, lactose intolerance or a diet low in FODMAPs. The app contains more than 900 foods that are commented and rated in view of the following subjects: - Carbohydrate malabsorptions • Fructose • Lactose • Sorbitol and other sugar alcohols • Oligosaccharides (e.g. fructans and galactans) • FODMAPs (total) • Sucrose - Histamine intolerance • Histamine content • Tyramine content • Histamine liberators and DAO inhibitors • Problematic medicines • Food additives - Salicylate intolerance • Salicylate content • Problematic food additives - Other intolerances and allergies Filters for gluten, wheat, soy, yeast, sulfites, dairy, egg, fish, meat, pork, beef and honey - More features • Detailed info texts • Flexibly adjustable rating system • Filter function • Sorting function • Possibility to write notes and manually adjust the rating • Adjustable portion size • Shopping list • Direct link to Wikipedia articles • No internet connection required - Nutrition facts (in-app purchase) • General nutrition facts (e.g. energy, protein, salt, omega-3, ...) • Minerals and micronutrients (e.g. iron, zinc, calcium, ...) • Vitamins A to K • Recommended daily intake • Glycemic index and glycemic load • Sort foods by nutrition values (works in combination with the filter function) * This app doesn’t rate brand specific products, but foods and products categories in general. It offers you all the information you need to deal with your intolerance and avoid common mistakes. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The app does not replace medical care and should not be used for diagnostic purposes.

    I can't find the part that explains what "ASA" means, and the foods are rather unorthodox to an American palate (ostrich?). But I still reco it bc it helps keep a lot of info straight when your dining out or grocery shopping. Also - can we add our own foods ? That would solve some of that issue of unusual foods. UPDATE: I can't seem to update the app - anyone else having this problem? All my other apps are updating just fine...
  • Great base app for intolerances

    The idea of this app is amazing. It has tons of foods and lots of uncommon foods as well. What would really make this a 10 star app is if the nutrition content section (for example, the fructose content in my case, with fructose malabsorption) were displayed per serving size rather than per 100mg. It's already color coded as high to low fructose content with little explanations, so that's pretty great, but i know that when trying to calculate the rough amount of fructose in two cloves of garlic or a single apple would be tough without a scale (I don't have a kitchen scale and I'm more familiar with US style serving sizes rather than gram amounts even though I don't even live in the US). I'm sure that would take a ton of inputting but I'd praise the developers and would definitely pay extra to have that as an extension!!

    Overall this is a great app for combining various food intolerances into one comprehensive guide. Very useful! For future updates, I would love to see the available filters include a more detailed breakdown for those following a FODMAP diet. Right now this app groups FOFMAP foods under two categories (fructose & sorbitol intolerance), but doesn't provide a filter for oglios or polyols like the Monash University FODMAP app does. I would also love to see Tyramine as an available filter as well. Right now tyramine info is buried in the comments section as opposed to being a separate filter.
  • Great app!

    This app has everything you need for quickly assessing if the food your considering will trigger you. It's complete with color coding, and cross referencing for every kind of allergy trigger. It found foods to be cautious of with my latex allergy as well. It also has a way to add glycemic load potential of your body building. So glad I bought this, makes shopping so much easier and the coding is customizable for your unique body. Wonderful!!!
  • Love the app but...

    This would be a 5-star app IF it had the feature of letting users add custom/new foods. Until that time, I'm forced to use a similar app that is not as good, because I can add additional foods I'm intollerant to. When this happens and I can do that, I'll be back and will give it 5 stars!!
  • THIS APP IS A LIFE SAVER

    Can't live with out this app! Very user friendly and well researched. After being diagnosed with Histamine Intolerance, it was SO stressful figuring out what I could eat without having a reaction. This app takes out all the guess work and educates you. Easy to use on the go. I am so thankful to have found it!
  • Waste of money

    Dairy, fructose are out for this histamine intolerant girl. This app has saved me many times. My favorite part is that I can customize the things I've found to be ok or put comments in. Since everyone who suffers from these afflictions is just a little different, this app is an amazing reference to have.
