Very reliable information
With so much misinformation online, being able to easily get FODMAP information directly from the source of the research is worth the $8 price, with all money going to further research at this nonprofit organization. While information is somewhat limited and specific brand name product listings are not available in the US, being able to look up raw ingredients is very helpful. The color-coded traffic light system is easy to follow. Allows a quick and discreet way to check ingredients without carrying around papers. Very thankful for this app! I recommend using this together with Cara app for dietary and other IBS tracking. US users should be prepared for Australian terminology such as biscuit=cookie, capsicum=bell pepper.
I am so disappointed in this app
There is good information
But. You cannot tap or use your fingers to enlarge the section you need to read quickly at the grocery store
The image or type will not budge
Very irritating even wearing Bifocals hard to read
I feel like I wasted $8 on this app. The recipes are based on ingredients not common in average USA household kitchens. To make something, I had to go shop in speciality stores, not our grocery store.
Now I have to say that the information about FODMAP is informative, and helped to understand what its purpose is. But, I have found equally good info by googling it.
So so helpful and informative
Before finding this app, my only source of help – and a good one too- was A website called help for IBS. I also had heather van Voorhis‘s Help for IBS cookbook. The amazing thing about the Monash app is the university’s breakthrough discovery of FODMAP chemicals as a real cause of IBS upsets, and the helpful guide to what foods to avoid or limit. I needed to lose weight, and I wanted to do weight watchers, but it would never work for me because of the foods they suggested. Now, with the use of the Monash app, I have been able to coordinate WW with the app Guide, and finally I’ve lost 13 pounds. Yay! But even more important is the helpful information. Sometimes when I have a flair I don’t know why, but I’ll go on the app and look at some of the foods I’m not sure of and I see exactly what I did wrong, and how to avoid it again next time. Thank you so much for your hard work, for your research, and for caring about this medical problem that is so debilitating and so ridiculed by the medical community.
Useful and useless
This is a good app, but there have been items for which I want information, but I can’t find in the app. For the price, the food database should be more complete. The app is easy to use overall.
More user friendly for. USA
App is generally helpful however not as user friendly for US .
Hope they will expand food list.
Only a Start
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 asr. 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.
I live in the United States. I couldn’t even check coffee, to see if I can have that. Recipes if you want to cook every meal.
Wish I wouldn’t have purchased
We have been on The diet for 3 months already. I was hoping for some new recipes, along with a way to document our symptoms when adding foods back in. The are not very many recipes, especially with need to make food for the holidays. In regard to documenting it is for your whole day of food intake not just specific items. Total waist of money for us. If you are just starting this could be a helpful too though.
I don’t know if I am doing something wrong or not, but several food items I typed in search and it says no results. I seriously thought I would be able to look up any and all foods and it tell me, but nope. Please, if someone knows what I’m doing wrong, let me know
