About this app

Do you want to know whether a food is compatible with fructose malabsorption, lactose, sorbitol or histamine intolerance? Or would you like to find out whether it is gluten-free or suitable for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)? Then: Ask Ingrid!

Ingrid is your companion in everyday life with food intolerances and special dietary requirements. She will assess your tolerance and indicate the amount of fructose, lactose, sorbitol, gluten, histamine or FODMAPs in your food. You can search for foods such as vegetables, meat or fruit, but also scan packaged foods. With her news feed in the app, Ingrid keeps you up to date with the latest nutrition news.

Download the app for free and set your personal intolerances. Ingrid shows you all the important information and her assessments at a glance. These are based on scientific findings and were developed in collaboration with the experts at the European nmi-portal. Ingrid also shows you how well individual foods are tolerated by other sufferers.

Try out "Ask Ingrid": You have 2 scans and 2 queries per day free of charge. You want more? For only 8 Cents a day you get unlimited access.

Scientific data
***
The data comes from the nmi-portal. This project has been conducting research in the field of intolerances for many years and has created the basis for Ingrid with the nmi-database. The data used all comes from scientific research, has been evaluated by those affected and checked by nutrition experts.

***
Community rating: people affected rate tolerance
***
However, Ingrid also has a very special feature: All users can document their personal tolerance of certain foods. This data is analyzed anonymously by Ingrid and made available to all other users. This means that you not only see the nutritional data on tolerance, but also the assessment of hundreds of thousands of other people affected. Thanks to these two independent evaluation criteria, you can design your diet ideally and individually and finally enjoy it again without discomfort.

***
Only compatible foods
***
Ingrid also automatically shows you an individualized list of foods that you can tolerate. Because Ingrid is not about prohibitions, but about a better attitude to life. And that includes a balanced diet.

***
Please send any questions, requests or suggestions to ingrid@frag-ingrid.com. If you like Ingrid, we look forward to a positive 5-star rating.

Dear developer! I would like to use the app in English, so I changed it from German to English in the Settings menu. The seting DOES change the main menu to English, and also the main list of foods, but it DOES NOT change the sublists language. For example: I see the following in the main foods in English: - Alcoholic beverages - E-numbers - Vinegar etc. But if I go into any of these, then the sublist will be displayed in german: - Bier - Champagner - Dessertwein, Süß etc. Please help!

English Speakers LISTEN!!! Open the app and skip completely ahead until you see the 3 dots in the top right corner, click it, then click the 5th option down to change the language from German to English. This app is a lifesaver and a time saver as well for me. Thank you so very much to the developers!!!!

It's is available in English indeed. It's German by default so you need to configure the language in the settings. What's not clear is based on what a user should adjust the rating. They should elaborate on that. Appart from that, very nice app.
