Description

Researchers at Monash University have developed the low FODMAP diet and a corresponding app to assist in the management of gastrointestinal symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The Monash University FODMAP diet works by swapping foods high in fermentable carbohydrates (FODMAPs), with low FODMAP alternatives. Around 75% of people with IBS experience symptom relief on a low FODMAP diet. The app comes directly from the research team at Monash and includes the following: - General information about the FODMAP diet and IBS. - Easy to understand tutorials to guide you through the app and the 3-Step FODMAP diet. - A Food Guide detailing the FODMAP content for hundreds of foods using a simple 'traffic light system'. - A list of branded products that have been certified by Monash as low FODMAP. - A collection of over 70 nutritious, low FODMAP recipes. - Functions that allow you to create your own shopping list and add notes to individual foods - A Diary that enables you to record food eaten, IBS symptoms, bowel habits and stress levels. The Diary will also guide you through step 2 of the diet - FODMAP reintroduction. - The ability to adjust units of measurement (metric or imperial) and activate colour blindness assistance.

  • What did I pay for?

    I got this so I would have an easy way to check what foods I can and can’t eat. But every time I click the food guide, I get a message saying “unable to download content from our server. Please try again later.”
  • Future version: Add mention of which FODMAP is the culprit for foods labeled red and yellow.

    Future version request: Please add mention of which FODMAP or FODMAPs is/are the culprit for foods you’ve labeled red and yellow. I would find it educational and helpful for seeing patterns in intolerances. Otherwise, you people are the only light of sanity in a dark murky tunnel of a life never asked for. ;-)
  • So few foods listed

    Next to nothing (outside of the basics) is listed in here. This app is a rip off without a doubt. Use google instead!
  • PLEASE ADD JAPAN!!

    I enjoy this app a lot. It is easy to use and I love the portion by portion information. HOWEVER, I am desperate. I am living in Japan and my access to “western” vegetables is scarce. Think 2$ per small zucchini and 1$ for 3 spears of asparagus. The cheapest (and healthiest) veggies are local Japanese vegetables that are in season but I have no clue as to their FODMAP content. Nanohana, fukinoto, komatsuna, kabu, etc. not to mention other basic foods such as natto, mirin, and sake. I am dutifully waiting for the Japan update 🙏🙏
  • Love info but hard to see

    I have recently been diagnosed with SIBO and find this a really useful guide. I admit that I don’t follow it exactly and have tried to figure out what bothers me based on experience and referring to this app. I am in denial about wheat flour but I may have to test all categories. I know lactose, onions and garlic are major problems and can assume some other things by looking at this app. Some things I assumed would be a problem are not in the category according to the app. My only complaint is the lack of font control. I find there isn’t enough contrast, making it hard for my old eyes to read. I would definitely recommend this app.
  • Good app, wish had offline mode

    This is a nice app for FODMAP foods. It doesn’t have all foods, but has a lot of the big ones. And they add new ones as they test them. I only wish it had an offline mode. I don’t always have internet at grocery stores, which makes it difficult.
  • Good but not as comprehensive as hoped

    Does not include some popular items. For example, I didn’t see gellan gum, which is in a lot of plant based creamers. It could be under a different name. I didn’t see coconut milk-as in the carton kind you use for cereal and that Starbucks uses. I didn’t see locust bean (in creamers/milks), but I can guess at that one. Otherwise, it’s helpful.
  • Waste of money

    Absolute waste. There is limited info on here for the price. You can follow Low fodmap people on Instagram for hundreds of free recipes. This one had maybe 20 basic recipes on there. Literal waste of money. Research google and Instagram lowfod map people and get better info free.
  • Need recent search record

    By PhelineCat
    I’d like a list of recent searches- if I’m eating something new we often need to double, triple check how much I can have since I didn’t really visualize what it looked like as a serving when we bought it, or what it would be served with. It would be handy if the notes were clickable to expand, or at least color coded. When I first started they meant one thing to me, then I reversed their meaning. Now I’d like to know what I mean... did I mean “eat endlessly” (for all practical purposes) or what? It’s annoying to spend too much time thinking about what I can eat, although I guess I’ve spent too much of my life wondering why I had to eat since it “did things to me” that messed with how I felt.
  • Improvement suggestion

    I’d like to be able to click on foods I don’t like and cannot eat so they don’t show on my lists. This would help make dinner suggestions without containing the aforementioned foods. For instance, I don’t like coffee at all so coffee flavored ice cream shouldn’t pop up. I’m allergic to wheat and seafood, so eliminating those would be great.
