Very helpful and pretty comprehensive. However, it's a bit bulky to use.
I only bought this because I'd rather consult the original source, but the red light green light system is awful. I went through all of the foods thinking the red light ones were the ones I couldn't have. Then I read a recipe that included sweet potatoes, a red light item. So I tried searching for it, but sweet potatoes wouldn't come up in the search bar. I went back to the guide and found it, and clicked on it. I saw that I can still have sweet potatoes, just a small amount. Awesome, I have to go back and start over now. I appreciate the attempts at recipes, but I cook from scratch a lot, so I'd rather just go through the lists and find the proper serving sizes. I think it would make a lot more sense if you had something like: potato, sweet : green (.5 cups) Also, fix the search bar.
This is a good basic app, but it really needs an update. Apps have changed a lot since this was created. We need to be able to barcode scan or search more Australian packaged foods. Even if we could submit to Monash for their research labs to test, that would be a great start. I don't regret paying for the app, but with its limitations I feel a bit ripped off. Was highly recommended by my gastroenterologist
Love this app. It has been a life saver!! I have found so many foods that I thought I wasn't allowed. I am allowed them, just in half or quarter servings! Makes getting to know about low fodmap diet way easier and less overwhelming. My dietician recommended it to me and yes it costs to buy the app but to me it's been well worth it. Love that they update it with new foods that they have researched.
It's clunky and the search function often freezes up. Some of the serving sizes used to give food a rating are impractical, such as a serving size of 2 brussel sprouts. Because of the poor calibration the color coding system is not useful. You need to open each food to read the description to see if it is actually safe or problematic. It seems like a lot of work went into gathering the data but very little attention was given to testing usability.
This is the first time I've ever paid for an app like this and although I've had a couple of navigation issues with it, it's easy to work out once you know how. Also it's good that the developers actually read your reviews and address your questions, so I'd advise anyone having problems to read the other reviews and the answers , as I did.
