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.



  • Waste of money - very little recipes

    By Sabs57
    I thought this app would have more recipe options, but it doesn’t.
  • Not helpful

    By nowayisitlettingmesend
    This app was not useful and a wasted purchase.
  • $8 is too much for this

    By kelskeyy
    For $8 I would expect a grocery store scanner, a brand search, and for at least a basic meat like Turkey to be listed. Even more than like 5 recipes per category? I’m pretty frustrated with this app. I haven’t tried the diet part yet but overall it just seems expensive for minimal functionality.

    Fantastic app! I often refer to the food guide when grocery shopping. Thank you for making this available.
  • Wrong colors on foods

    By ashwednor
    Many of the food colors are wrong on my app. For example refried pinto beans....
  • Basic App

    By not all in one
    This app is very basic. American everyday foods are barely listed. Not worth the $8.00. Download the free app instead. Unless you want the fancy calendar this app has. That’s my one and only favorite feature.
  • What did I pay for?

    By Kibblet427
    I got this so I would have an easy way to check what foods I can and can’t eat. But every time I click the food guide, I get a message saying “unable to download content from our server. Please try again later.”
  • Future version: Add mention of which FODMAP is the culprit for foods labeled red and yellow.

    By JohnNYCAdGuy
    Future version request: Please add mention of which FODMAP or FODMAPs is/are the culprit for foods you’ve labeled red and yellow. I would find it educational and helpful for seeing patterns in intolerances. Otherwise, you people are the only light of sanity in a dark murky tunnel of a life never asked for. ;-)
  • So few foods listed

    By SadieCearns
    Next to nothing (outside of the basics) is listed in here. This app is a rip off without a doubt. Use google instead!

    I enjoy this app a lot. It is easy to use and I love the portion by portion information. HOWEVER, I am desperate. I am living in Japan and my access to “western” vegetables is scarce. Think 2$ per small zucchini and 1$ for 3 spears of asparagus. The cheapest (and healthiest) veggies are local Japanese vegetables that are in season but I have no clue as to their FODMAP content. Nanohana, fukinoto, komatsuna, kabu, etc. not to mention other basic foods such as natto, mirin, and sake. I am dutifully waiting for the Japan update 🙏🙏
