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.

    This app didn’t offer me much more than the free apps. The food options are very limited for United States.
  • Not good for United States food list and more

    The filter to United States didn’t work. Food list wasn’t helpful. I’m still looking at recipes, but initial review wasn’t useful. I’m thankful for their research and hope they improve this app.
  • FODMAP GUIDE

    when this app was updated, it lost the search feature which I used all the time. It’s useless to me now.
  • Googling Works Better

    I was diagnosed with IBS 6 months ago and this app came highly recommended. Sadly, it was a huge waste of money. I found better information more quickly through google than I could through this app. I’ve become accustomed to googling “Is [insert food] low fodmap?” and the results are better. If monash is truly the leader in IBS, I hope they stick with what they’re good at (apps). This is not something worth spending your money on.
  • It’s not worth it

    I got it and it’s not what I needed. I wish I could get a refund. I have been looking for an app and this one isn’t worth it for the price.?
  • No barcode scanner

    I thought this app would have a scanner to tell you when shopping if there is an ingredient to avoid. There isn’t one. I want a refund immediately.
  • It’s a start

    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.
  • Don’t waste your time!

    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.
