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.



  • Love info but hard to see

    By PBerg86
    I have recently been diagnosed with SIBO and find this a really useful guide. I admit that I don’t follow it exactly and have tried to figure out what bothers me based on experience and referring to this app. I am in denial about wheat flour but I may have to test all categories. I know lactose, onions and garlic are major problems and can assume some other things by looking at this app. Some things I assumed would be a problem are not in the category according to the app. My only complaint is the lack of font control. I find there isn’t enough contrast, making it hard for my old eyes to read. I would definitely recommend this app.
  • Good app, wish had offline mode

    By saved~by~grace
    This is a nice app for FODMAP foods. It doesn’t have all foods, but has a lot of the big ones. And they add new ones as they test them. I only wish it had an offline mode. I don’t always have internet at grocery stores, which makes it difficult.
  • Good but not as comprehensive as hoped

    By ashatkins
    Does not include some popular items. For example, I didn’t see gellan gum, which is in a lot of plant based creamers. It could be under a different name. I didn’t see coconut milk-as in the carton kind you use for cereal and that Starbucks uses. I didn’t see locust bean (in creamers/milks), but I can guess at that one. Otherwise, it’s helpful.
  • Waste of money

    By dankusreefermazgef
    Absolute waste. There is limited info on here for the price. You can follow Low fodmap people on Instagram for hundreds of free recipes. This one had maybe 20 basic recipes on there. Literal waste of money. Research google and Instagram lowfod map people and get better info free.
  • Need recent search record

    By PhelineCat
    I’d like a list of recent searches- if I’m eating something new we often need to double, triple check how much I can have since I didn’t really visualize what it looked like as a serving when we bought it, or what it would be served with. It would be handy if the notes were clickable to expand, or at least color coded. When I first started they meant one thing to me, then I reversed their meaning. Now I’d like to know what I mean... did I mean “eat endlessly” (for all practical purposes) or what? It’s annoying to spend too much time thinking about what I can eat, although I guess I’ve spent too much of my life wondering why I had to eat since it “did things to me” that messed with how I felt.
  • Improvement suggestion

    By ZaxMom97
    I’d like to be able to click on foods I don’t like and cannot eat so they don’t show on my lists. This would help make dinner suggestions without containing the aforementioned foods. For instance, I don’t like coffee at all so coffee flavored ice cream shouldn’t pop up. I’m allergic to wheat and seafood, so eliminating those would be great.
  • Meh

    By ALW1314
    Disappointed with the food search database. Somewhat vague and missing items. I still had to search foods online to check. It would be awesome if you could scan food items, but I understand the breakdown of different items would be difficult. Not worth $8 with all the other apps/internet searches available.
  • Excellent Resource

    By IbeMLW
    What a thoughtful and well-organized app. Very informative and useful. I wish these guys would put together an app for gerd! Very impressed... thank you!
  • No worth the money

    By bbhgdrryi
    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

    By Rushunique
    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.
