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



  • Helpful, easy to use

    You can filter results by your personal sensitivities. Proceeds go toward testing more foods.
  • My best tool

    This app was hard to understand at first, but it has saved me tons of stomach upset after I learned to use it well. It didn’t just help me with choosing food, but fully understanding the diet! It’s been amazing for me! I tried several apps before I tried this one, and this one is by far the best and for sure worth the money I paid.
  • Very reliable information

    With so much misinformation online, being able to easily get FODMAP information directly from the source of the research is worth the $8 price, with all money going to further research at this nonprofit organization. While information is somewhat limited and specific brand name product listings are not available in the US, being able to look up raw ingredients is very helpful. The color-coded traffic light system is easy to follow. Allows a quick and discreet way to check ingredients without carrying around papers. Very thankful for this app! I recommend using this together with Cara app for dietary and other IBS tracking. US users should be prepared for Australian terminology such as biscuit=cookie, capsicum=bell pepper.

    I am so disappointed in this app There is good information But. You cannot tap or use your fingers to enlarge the section you need to read quickly at the grocery store The image or type will not budge Very irritating even wearing Bifocals hard to read

    I feel like I wasted $8 on this app. The recipes are based on ingredients not common in average USA household kitchens. To make something, I had to go shop in speciality stores, not our grocery store. Now I have to say that the information about FODMAP is informative, and helped to understand what its purpose is. But, I have found equally good info by googling it.
  • So so helpful and informative

    Before finding this app, my only source of help – and a good one too- was A website called help for IBS. I also had heather van Voorhis‘s Help for IBS cookbook. The amazing thing about the Monash app is the university’s breakthrough discovery of FODMAP chemicals as a real cause of IBS upsets, and the helpful guide to what foods to avoid or limit. I needed to lose weight, and I wanted to do weight watchers, but it would never work for me because of the foods they suggested. Now, with the use of the Monash app, I have been able to coordinate WW with the app Guide, and finally I’ve lost 13 pounds. Yay! But even more important is the helpful information. Sometimes when I have a flair I don’t know why, but I’ll go on the app and look at some of the foods I’m not sure of and I see exactly what I did wrong, and how to avoid it again next time. Thank you so much for your hard work, for your research, and for caring about this medical problem that is so debilitating and so ridiculed by the medical community.
  • Useful and useless

    By Egadzooks!
    This is a good app, but there have been items for which I want information, but I can’t find in the app. For the price, the food database should be more complete. The app is easy to use overall.
  • More user friendly for. USA

    By DJW.
    App is generally helpful however not as user friendly for US . Hope they will expand food list.
  • Only a Start

    By LiddleKiddle
    This app is what I wanted, but right now I feel that it is incomplete. I am in the US and many common foods are missing. The last update was a month ago, but when I look online, fresh cranberries are listed on the web site but they are not part of the app data asr. As this app costs more than most, I am hoping that it will continue to grow. As it is now, when in the store, I have to also consult PDFs I have downloaded from other sources.
  • Worthless

    I live in the United States. I couldn’t even check coffee, to see if I can have that. Recipes if you want to cook every meal.
