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.



  • Excellent App - has helped me greatly

    By JorgeDickle
    I rely on this app for assistance with my choices of food. It has been invaluable for assisting me in getting a handle on the complicated disease known as S.I.B.O. With the help of this app and my dietician/nutritionist I have been almost entirely symptom free for about ten months without any additional antibiotics or other medicines.
  • Great app, but two concerns

    By paigereviewsthings
    I am embarrassed to use the diary feature in public because it shows pictures of types of bowel movements. It would be great to have an option to hide the pictures. It would also be nice to be able to filter food to show ONLY the food you can eat and hide everything else. Like, show ONLY green traffic light foods.
  • Excellent support for beginning Low FODMAP!

    By Chantfan
    Despite many dietary changes over the last 4 years, low FODMAP seemed complicated and daunting. This APP has provided invaluable help with food choices, and the Diary is customized very well for healing the gut and irritable bowel. I am also following Monash FODMAP in Twitter- amazing how informative the blog is! Thank you!
  • Seems helpful

    By hebescrohns
    Overall, it seems like this will be a helpful app. However I am a little disappointed that you can’t quick add a food to your diary. You have to manual enter it. That’s really annoying.
  • Use issues

    By siriusfoodlover
    Have been unable to get this to filter country - hard to waste time looking at this app if I have to see everything from every country’s list when I just need to make dinner for my kid.
  • A life saver

    By Instructor who cares
    I only wish I Purchased this app sooner. It would have saved me a lot of intestinal pain.
  • Helpful

    By Pope.afp89
    This app is helpful but it needs to add more items to it. It can be a little Eurocentric with its ingredient options. Look up more variety of foods and add them in please.
  • My Fodmap Bible

    By Jesmeeeeeeee
    I go this app to check foods. It’s easy to use with no extraneous Information. I can read details elsewhere any time. This app is easy to check in restaurants or grocery stores.
  • Fantastic Info

    Being on a low fodmap diet is tricky! I appreciate this app because I can quickly access information and check things out whenever I have a question
  • Food diary

    By mallola2
    I love that I can find out what foods are safe, etc., but would love that when I do put my food in, would like a myfitnesspal process and a kick back if it’s allowed it high FODMAP or stacking.
