The rating system is unfortunately misleading, particularly for many vegetables. They are marked as low FODMAP, but when you read the details, that is only for small serving sizes, and states that "large" (i.e. more realistic) serving sizes are moderate or high in FODMAPs. This includes broccoli and other vegetables generaly noted as moderate in most literature. The "traffic light" rating system is thus unreliable as a quick reference if you have to read the details for everything.
Sophisticated App The level of detail and underlying research is impressive. It illustrates that both the form and quantity of a food can significantly affect FODMAPs suggesting that many online lists are misleading. Identifying underlying sugars is a great feature as problem foods for individuals can point to other unrecognised and more subtle offending foods. One limitation, more evident in other lists, is food coverage. The complexity explains why it can be so hard for individuals to identify offending foods.
Awesome app...but! Love the app, the only thing I'd suggest is putting an option to upload recipe ingredients to see if that would trigger any symptoms. Like if I wanted to know if homemade brownies had a high amount of something in them, and what serving size to eat, I could upload all the ingredients and the app could tell me if I was going to have any issues with them. Hope that made sense. Haha. Love it otherwise!
Excellent App I'm new to FODMAPs and this app is excellent. Great information booklet which is easy to understand and has great tips for shopping and eating enough fibre etc. Before you eat something you can quickly check if it is FODMAP friendly using the search function and easy to understand traffic light system. Highly recommend it!!
Your health is worth the money An easy and comprehensive food guide app that has helped me avoid certain foods and has helped me resolve a stomach issue. That is a very big deal. I use it when shopping and ordering out as well. I hope new foods for the U.S. will continually be added (I think this app would sell even better in the giant U.S. market), but as it is, it is fairly extensive and most unprocessed food is country neutral. Great app!
Works well This diet has worked perfectly for my girlfriend. Using the app with a little bit of creative substitutions I have been able to make many meals for her. Which allowed us to greatly vary flavors of her food. I recommend anyone with ibs to try out this app.
