Researchers at Monash University have developed a diet and corresponding app to assist in management of the gastrointestinal symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The Monash University Low FODMAP diet works by restricting foods high in some carbohydrates called FODMAPs. The app includes the following: - Background information about FODMAPs - A food guide detailing the FODMAP content for hundreds of foods - A full recipe book including 79 original and nutritious recipes with professional photography - A shopping list for organising low FODMAP purchases - A one week food & symptom journal to monitor a strict FODMAP diet, with the function to view detailed graphs of symptoms and the end of the week



  • Documentation, Portable & Comprehensive

    I appreciate the documentation . I like being able check assertions. I find it convenient to utilize my when shopping. The Traffic Light symbols are a great idea. The information is comprehensive.
  • You MUST have this app - most net info is incorrect

    **UPDATE: Please don’t self diagnose from the internet! I had all the symptoms of FODMAP problems, except my bloat was unremitting. I spent 3 weeks using this diet and it DID alleviate some symptoms but - a stool test shows I’ve had E coli. Please get checked for bugs before you start this on your own. There is so much conflicting info in the internet and in books, not just in anonymous forums but coming from people who claim to be coaches. People misinterpret things, or only give partial I was 2 weeks in before I learned (from a Monash blog) that eliminating the high FODMAPS had also eliminated all the prebiotic food. Seriously, I’m kicking myself for not having gotten a stool sample sooner. BUT if you insist on going this alone, I rate this a 5-star tool. Monash University is constantly testing foods and updating. This is the ONLY way you can search for a specific food, and see exactly what the rating is for each of the 4 FOMAPS. It’s the ONLY way you’ll get a sense of which of the 4 might be your problem. $8 is less than the cost of a book and besides, you’re helping to fund the research that made this possible.
  • Comtradicts itself

    Red light for orange juice but fresh squeezed oj is a top recipe? Only nutritional drinks are Nestle and most foods suggested are by Fody with a link and coupon. Seems like an ad. Everything is gluten free. Many gassy foods that cause IBS symptoms are listed with green lights. This is not what the video promised.
  • Not a fan of the diary set-up

    By Cynthia16
    I like how big the database is, but the app would be way more useful if, in the recipe section of the diary, you could check off the ingredients that are in your food, instead of just listing them. The app specifically says that it’s not as effective if using recipes that are not in the app. I make up a lot of my own recipes, and I’m not a fan of being limited to what’s in the app.
  • Good

    By rirobertson
    I would like more recipes for the low fodmap diet please and less dairy included meals.
  • Hands down this is the best.

    By Treasi
    Science that you trust, with clear explanations and super easy to use. It’s been a god send for me as I no longer suffer negative reactions to certain foods (cause i can identify which ones to avoid thanks to this app) but now understand why. Fitter, healthier and happiest thanks to the team that make this. 👍
  • Not worth it (at least in the US)

    By tea&laughter
    This is less useful if you are in the US but it is not more helpful than a free app that is also available. Save your money for GF bread. :)
  • Very helpful app, but lacks flexibility

    By IhateLee
    I'm using this app in the elimination phase, and the guide view look up for items and serving sizes has been extremely helpful. Would recommend that for anyone trying to do a low FODMAP diet! Unfortunately for me, the journal function is based off of using recipes found in the app, which are a lot of recipes that I would never eat, and require extensive prep, even for lunches. I have found plenty of easy low FODMAP recipes online and would love the function in the journal part of this app to "create a recipe" by adding the ingredients (from the guide view) to get a similarly accurate analysis as from using the recipes. I would also like to be able to journal my symptoms in real time, because at the end of the day I don't generally remember all of my symptoms since they have been so normalized for me :) All that being said I couldn't imagine doing an elimination of FODMAPs without this app!!
  • Waste of money

    By justmetish
    I was disappointed with this app because it only gives general product/food information. Anything specific to the US you still have to google.
  • Must work on search function

    By hotsauce70
    Useful if you (ever) figure out the “proper” order of words to find what you’re looking for on the search function. Completely unintuitive - my guess is a non/english speaker created it.
