Monash University FODMAP diet App Description

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

  • Not what its worth!

    $13 for what? I understand its a good app in the sense it helps BUT not very much! I was told that the app had brands of food that you would find in your Australian supermarkets and yet when i type in common brands it gets ‘no result’!? The app also has loads of bugs such as buttons not sitting where they should be! (I use an iPhone 8 plus) I was hoping for more! I’m disappointed and feeling ripped off. (Other apps give you basically the same for free)

    Just downloaded the app and set the sensitivity to high for Lactose. Application says that Butter is ok to eat. Hmmmm. Response: Interestingly, within a day of usage, with the filters still on, Butter (dairy base) no longer appears in the list of items on the app that I can see. Presumably the filters have done that. The app does say that on first use of the filters that the app will need resetting or some such for the filters to start functioning correctly. Maybe this warning could be more specific. Eg: restart the app / restart the phone / wait an hour I am still using the app and finding it very simple after a few days use. I don’t 100% trust it yet.
  • Food guide for Asian food ingredients needed!

    The app covers a wide range of food and ingredients but I think the data base should not just stop there. Covering more and more food and ingredients will be appreciated. Living in Sydney, there are so many delicious Asia restaurants I can choose from. However I am not comfortable with what they put it in because they are not been covered by FODMAP analysis..! While more and more of people paying for this app and organisation, I hope they can grow the data base to complete wider range.
  • Great app

    Fantastic app, very user friendly and easy to use! Worth the money if you have IBS!! It would be the perfect app if there was a larger variety of low fodmap recipes available through it, however the Monash website provides those just a few more clicks away. Thank you for developing this!
  • More food guide needed

    I am really happy with the information presented and although the food guide is a good start, I just want to know if it will be continually added to as there are so many other foods not listed so I don’t know if I can eat them or not. Thanks
  • So many bugs!!

    I am soooooo frustrated right now... meant to be sending my journal report to my dietician and the app keeps crashing. I’ve spent so long recording all of my food and symptoms and now I can’t access it. As there is no log in I am unable to download this information any other way. For an app that is paid for and is meant to be assisting the health of its customers this really should not be an issue. PLEASE fix this issue!!

    Great app, a big help, but; No sync - many children have dietary issues. Please consider a method for parents to interact with their children's diary and more Not for those with celiac disease - how many of those who require a low fodmap diet are also celiac sufferers... Please consider a setting to filter gluten too. Lack of meal calculations - for example. If I eat two Brussels sprouts (green) does this mean I can or can't also eat 1 carrot. Lacks multi user support - if a parent wants to use the app for their own food issues while at the same time manage the diet of a child with different needs they currently need two devices More filtering options needed - I'm not sure why I need to see every filtered red light food all the time. Usually (when shopping/cooking) I will just want to see the foods that are safe and not have to scroll through a long list reminding me of all the things that are off limits. Please, please, please add a gluten filter.
  • Loving this app

    There is room for improvement but overall it’s a great asset to the FODMAP diet.
  • Waste of money

    The green/orange/red light system seemed good at first but upon further investigation there are no tea explanations for anything, there’s a green and a red light for two types of milk that are both soy and doesn’t take any time to explain what each one means, if I feel like I have to refer to google to figure it out I automatically feel like I wasted my money. Another thing as well it would be great if there was examples of each item say from like a supermarket item that is regularly used but there isn’t which is funny because they know for sure that brumbies bread is totally ok to eat which automatically makes me assume they have product placement in an app they make people pay for which looks really bad imo
  • Basic information

    I’ve done quiet a lot of research and thought this might be another tool to use. A waste of time. Some info is incorrect and recipes use ingredients that shouldn’t be included.
