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.



  • Good searchable Food list, but diary is so glitchy

    Love the food list, which is clear and easy to follow. I was also initially thrilled with the diary for listing food and symptoms. But the problem is that it “loses” past records and then finds them again. This morning I couldn’t get it to show prior day’s entries. Now they have reaped, but this morning’s entry is gone! Also I just tried to generate a report, but it was unable to send it!
  • Expensive

    By MelissaMHarden
    Good info. Monthly charge was surprising. Deleting.
  • I am disappointed by lack of vegetarian recipes

    By ireviewstuff2
    There are only 70 recipes all together. It’s like they want you to buy the cookbook. I would imagine there aren’t that many vegetarian and vegan recipes in the cookbook. Most of the products that are monash certified aren’t available in the US. Should be an option for exercise in the diary. I just use a note. I’d like to see more information on how to reintroduce foods. Types of foods to try first.
  • Not worth the $8

    Can’t customize to me, keeps giving me other countries even though I chose mine, no scanner to see what packed food is ok.
  • Sometimes questionable, better than the FODMAP competition

    Somewhat inconsistent and a bit of a pain to use, but much more authoritative than anything else out there. Annoying that their Send Feedback function seems to be broken (Edit: only if your default mail client is not Apple Mail)
  • A must for low FODMAP

    By beerchurchgal
    This app is from Monash University, and their research sets the standard for FODMAP information. For the past few months I’ve used it multiple times a day for looking up foods, tracking my diet and symptoms, reintroducing foods and more. It’s important to note that a low FODMAP diet should be prescribed by medical professionals, it should be undertaken with advice from a doctor and/or dietician.
  • It helps when you are at a restaurant or in the grocery store

    Thank you
  • Don’t purchase

    By Fablehaven Farm
    I purchased this app because I am trying to work through the FOD Map diet. It’s not an easy diet to determine and I needed more guidance than I could find on the web or in a few books I ordered from Amazon. I thought this app would be the answer because it was created by the people who created the FOD Map diet. I wanted to go to the source to find better answers. This app is not helpful. You have to look up each food separately and the bank is limited. The answers are unclear. Several of the same foods were listed as “green” and if you scrolled down the list you’d see the same food as “red.” The different parts of the app do not work together. I tried logging my food and realized it works like a word document. I have to write it down and then find go to the food list to find if the food was red, yellow, or green. Then record your symptoms. Who has time for that? I would not recommend this app at all.
  • Not many recipes

    By HalleyD
    There are 70 recipes divided between these categories: breakfasts, main meals, soups/salads/sides, deserts, snacks, basics recipes, and vegetarian. That means there aren’t many recipes per category, especially considering they advertise themselves as a “university.” I will give that there is some variety in the recipes, but I still feel underwhelmed by the recipe section. For example, there’s only 2 tofu recipes!!! That’s not a lot of variety. Additionally, there’s 4 recipes for red meat; which, from everything I read, is a specific meat to limit on low fodmap. Not sure this is worth $8

    Eating fodmap free foods definitely helps my IBS. There are some foods I wish they had, but they are constantly adding new foods to the database every month.
