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.

    Thanks for your hard work devs this has been a boon to my health. I've been a daily user of the app for several months. Please fix this and I'll bump rating to 5 stars: There are a few broken features. The 'Send feedback' button in the settings is broken so I'm leaving my bug report here. I've been using the food diary feature the past few days and love it, but unfortunately I'm not able to export/share the PDF report that it generates. When I tap the share icon, nothing happens. Another minor gripe I have is that some of the food names seem region specific to Austrailia (I assume) which is confusing as an American English speaker. In general the food search is a little strict on keyword matching and could be a little more forgiving to typos and alternative names for foods.
  • A life saver

    This app literally changed my life. It’s a bargain at any price.
  • Very rarely updated, and no dark mode

    By Ladyjade5467
    I purchased this app years ago. Updates are usually bug fixes. Very disappointed in how little effort they put into things…it feels like they’re just collecting money and coasting… They also do not seem to care about accessibility. The app has a lot of white background, and no dark mode option. It’s not even possible to invert the colors by using the per-app settings in the accessibility section of ios settings. Very frustrating app.
  • 5 stars for educational content

    I’m so thankful that Monash Univ is doing this research. After my first colonoscopy at 37, my gastro diagnosed me with IBS-C. She handed me a single worksheet with a T-chart of safe/unsafe foods. I felt completely hopeless until I found this app!
  • Great app!

    By Mmmmmtaaa
    Is a great app because it has many specialists who can help you with your process and how you can understand step-by-step the introduction to the food again.
  • Confusing

    By lynnemin

  • Good Purchase

    I’m pretty happy with this app. I like that you can set your country and that’s what comes up when looking for something. I use this when planning out my meals. I like that it tells you what amount of a particular item you can have. For instance, some apps will say no to red bell pepper completely. This app will give you how many grams are okay to eat of red bell pepper. I could understand you not liking this app if you mostly go out to eat or you use box foods to eat but I mostly use whole foods when I cook so it makes it really simple for me. It also doesn’t hurt that these people are the developers of the FODMAP diet. I trust them to know what they are talking about. I also can say after 4 days of using it I feel better already. Thank you!
  • no links work, frustrated!

    By festatichiama
    1 star for attention. not mobile friendly, SUPER frustrating. all thru the app there are links that dont work. HELLO DEVS PLEASE FIX. I wouldn't give feedback this way, but the Feedback link does not work on the app!!! and there is no way to get a hold of them anywhere. Even if you Google this app and go to the webpage, there's no way to communicate with them. This is an extremely easy fix to make the links work. Another example of where they work is they have a certified section where they list food partners, and it is almost impossible to get those links to work. And now I will confess that this is a super useful app. Several times a day I go on here to receive the bad news that I can't eat something or like anything 🤣 if I can make some feature suggestions, it would be great to see the data organized in terms of, what CAN I eat? For instance, I want to see a list of vegetables that I can eat. A lot of or a medium amount of they have enough data to make a slider where you can say vegetable and moderate FODMAP or very low FODMAP. Also, the recipe should be billed out more. There's only a few of them. Thanks for your work, university. LASTLY it is very confusing that on the food index page, the green red orange dots do not consistently go in ascending or descending order, it is different for each item. They should all go in ascending order or they should all go in descending order. That makes this already frustrating situation even more confusing.
  • Not my favorite

    By Cupilfina
    Um I guess it needs more variety. The diary is nice other than that it’s just mediocre. A lot of stuff you can look up on your own. It’s ok for someone that needs extra help maybe. I wish there were more filters for allergens though. I love schar products, but I cook a lot of my food too. It’s a pain to go off Ingredients alone bc some things I can’t find.
