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.

    FODMAP information could be conflicting as you look at all the sites online. This one helps but is still limited. The search misses some fairly common foods in the US. I like that it is detailed with portion amounts. That it is from the leader in research and the funds support more ways to improve the app.
  • Food guide is rarely accessible

    The whole reason I paid money for this app was to utilize the food guide. The first month or so the guide worked perfectly, but I have barely been able to use it the last several months. There is always an error saying they can’t download information from their own server. It is extremely frustrating to pay for something that doesn’t work and cannot be accessed.

    This app is NOT worth the money. You can find better recipes and advice else where. This app is really lacking. I am disappointed, I read the reviews and looked at others before purchasing.
  • Awful app

    I’ve legit been inside this app for a few minutes. For as touted as Monash is, and for how overpriced the app is, you’d expect to get quite a bit of information. Main course recipes have only approx 12 of them? That’s it? For an $8 app? I expected this to be exceedingly robust. I searched coffee and it’s a general food item that isn’t in the list of foods at all in the search bar. Unreal. I WANT A REFUND. —— Update 11/10/18: crashes when I try to add a particular item (Brown sugar) to list. Do you guys not have anyone UAT testing this before you release something? ——

    Unless I am misunderstanding this app only gives food under brand names and necessarily brands easily obtained if at all in the states...paid $7.99 for nothing!!!
  • Hugely helpful, with one complaint

    This app has been hugely helpful in figuring out a low fodmap diet and not feeling completely depressed about so many food limitations. Definitely worth it. We have now been on a very strict low fodmap diet for two months, with major stomach issues only twice—that is amazing for someone used to debilitating cramps on a daily basis! We are in the add-it-back-in phase (trying one category at a time to see if this sugar or that is a particularly bad culprit) and my only complaint is that the app does not allow you to category search by sugar types. For example, I want to be able to select “Oligosaccharides” and see everything with that kind of short chain carbohydrate. That way if I know that one category is a problem, I can see that it isn’t just beans and lentils that have GOS, but also beets. Who knew that the mannitol classification of Polyols included sweet potatoes, celery, mushrooms, and cauliflower? Having those groupings would also be nice for the adding in phase, so if I want to try adding Fructans back in, I can see that it’s not just bread, but also onions and garlic.
  • Disappointing

    I tried using the filter because I am lactose intolerant, but it still shows the items with lactose as green. There is no way to personalize your list... for example, if something bothers you, you can add notes, BUT you can’t remove the item or mark it as red or SOMETHING that makes it obvious that this item is a no go.
  • Better and better!

    This app is what I wanted, but right now I feel that it is incomplete. I am in the US and many common foods are missing. The last update was a month ago, but when I look online, fresh cranberries are listed on the web site but they are not part of the app data. As this app costs more than most, I am hoping that it will continue to grow. As it is now, when in the store, I have to also consult PDFs I have downloaded from other sources. UPDATE— I have not experienced the issues with the last update some others have. While I still supplement the Guide’s info from other sources, this is really handy in the supermarket. I am updating my rating!
  • Where did the search go?

    I am not going to scroll through the entire guide to find each item... you can’t get rid of the search button. Refund please.

    This is absolutely not practical. And a lot is inaccurate. I will be asking for refund.
