Monash University FODMAP diet app

Monash University FODMAP diet

3.5 star

Researchers at Monash University have developed the low FODMAP diet and a corresponding app to assist in the management of gastrointestinal symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The Monash University FODMAP diet works by swapping foods high in fermentable carbohydrates (FODMAPs), with low FODMAP alternatives. Around 75% of people with IBS experience symptom relief on a low FODMAP diet. The app comes directly from the research team at Monash and includes the following: - General information about the FODMAP diet and IBS. - Easy to understand tutorials to guide you through the app and the 3-Step FODMAP diet. - A Food Guide detailing the FODMAP content for hundreds of foods using a simple 'traffic light system'. - A list of branded products that have been certified by Monash as low FODMAP. - A collection of over 70 nutritious, low FODMAP recipes. - Functions that allow you to create your own shopping list and add notes to individual foods - A Diary that enables you to record food eaten, IBS symptoms, bowel habits and stress levels. The Diary will also guide you through step 2 of the diet - FODMAP reintroduction. - The ability to adjust units of measurement (metric or imperial) and activate colour blindness assistance.

Monash University FODMAP diet App Reviews (554)

Why did you make updates that were worse? Do you not do user research with people who have ibs?Recently you made an update to the times which actually make it hard to record the data where I have to tap twice to edit the times? This was somehow easier to do before so I’m not sure why this change was introduced. Could you do voice dictation so that it types as you speak for the diary section? I find typing in food measurement the most cumbersome part. I do appreciate the clean interface and the simple logic that’s applied. Although it could do a bit more to help users spot or identify patterns in their behaviours so that they can see how it affects their symptoms such as sleeping patterns, quantity of liquids they’re consuming, how often they might feel symptoms throughout the week or if these symptoms only occur in the mornings etc. If the app could provide the analytics then it would be so useful to identify triggers in behaviours. For design, my only issue is that the British stool chart could perhaps make the stools look less realistic as doing the app in public or shared spaces can be a bit off putting, I personally don’t want to get my phone to do a diary entry and then for someone to see an image of my stool if that makes sense so more discretion would be good for privacy. Happy to comment on any other features if you want to get in touch as I study UX but also suffer from GI issues. More user research and testing would really help but I know that it’s not easy.Score: 3/5

The food/symptoms diary is really easy to use and the Reintroduction part of the diary comes preloaded with types of food to reintroduce for each FODMAP group and suggested amounts to eat for each Reintroduction day, which makes everything SO much easier! The filters are great if you want to filter out particular types of FODMAPS, which will be great once in Stage 3 of the diet (Personalisation).

Not for me ...Would be way better if they they included the portion sizes in the recipes. For example, according to the list of foods, avocados are only ok if you only eat ⅛ of an avocado, but there is a recipe for guacamole that is twelve servings but doesnt say the serving size. When you figure it out it seems like its around a 2-3 Tbsp serving which imho is ridiculous - who would go to all the bother of making it to only eat 2 or 3 bites. Who eats only 2-4 chips with guac?? Torture. Would rather not have any at all. This app is full of info telling you how little of everything you can have, like 1/2 an asparagus spear or 2 brussel sprouts, and I guess thats just how fodmap works but personally its not for me.

My go-to guide!My husband has had IBS for 20+ years, but could never figure out what was wrong. We knew he was lactose intolerant, but there were so many more problems than just that. In 2018, after blood tests, cat scans, excrement sampling, colonoscopies, etc., his gastroenterologist suggested we try a FODMAP diet. Parsing through all the conflicting information felt impossible, and in the end, the best source was getting it straight from the horse’s mouth: Monash University. After months of elimination and reintroduction, we discovered that he is Fructan intolerant on top of the lactose intolerance. He has now been off fructans (or on low fructans) for 3 years, and his IBS is virtually gone! Unless he accidentally gets too much, he feels 100%! We use the app EVERY SINGLE DAY just to check if some random food or other is okay to eat. I recommended it to everyone with IBS, just in case they solve their issues.

Almost 4 weeks in and my life has changed drastically. And I feel positive about the future. It’s not a simple program and requires a discipline about food I struggle with so the dedicated support of my partner has helped enormously. Yes there is a lot of researching and double checking, learning new information, seeking out products, new recipes, denial of favourites (garlic and onion!!!) and lots of organisation and forward thinking. But it is SO worth it. We are both very thankful for the work of the Monash University team whose work provides the opportunity to take active steps towards good health. The symptoms I had suffered for years were worsening, they were debilitating and were significantly affecting my life. To be frank, I’m feeling a bit apprehensive about reintroduction of potential trigger foods (as you really notice it if you have a set back) but I have a good dietician and I’m also keen to identify the triggers, and the amount of the food which can be consumed before it triggers return of symptoms, so I’m committed to seeing this thru. The MONASH FODMAP APP has greatly facilitated the essential diary keeping; without it I’d have fallen by the wayside by now I believe.

Hoping for moreWhile this app has some info about FODMAP and ibs it also has little in terms of recipes. I have found more variety of recipes for free online. For the price tag of this app I was expecting weekly meal plans and even a shopping list section to make it easier when shopping. Save your $$ and go online for recipes, info etc.Score: 1/5

Hard to actually use due to lack of productsLack of products making it hard to enter in food and struggle to make sense of what you can and can’t eat as there is no much food in a supermarket that isn’t in this app. It only has very basic food entered into it.Score: 1/5

You need this app!I was told by a few people not to bother buying an app as “all this information is online for free”, which is sort of true. But after having a few bad experiences with incorrect information I learned my lesson and purchased. I use this as my one source of truth when it comes to what I can eat. I love the diary feature which I use daily. It would be cool if this could integrate into Apple Watch to track water intake (a nice to have feature, not a necessity!) The reason I gave only 4 stars is because there are some certified fodmap friendly foods that aren’t included in the app (yet) and I’d love to have a barcode scanner for foods. It’s an excellent app and I’ve found it easy to use!.Score: 4/5

Not too bad!Have downloaded the app today and am enjoying seeing what I should and shouldn’t be eating. However, for the daily menu it would be great to have an option to click on an item and add it directly to the menu rather than typing it in. A barcode scanning option would also be handy. Other than that it’s a great app.... and I can still have my wine :p !!!!!!.Score: 4/5

Offline useIt’s a great app but when I go shopping in large supermarkets I almost always can’t connect due to poor reception and just give up trying to look up foods. There’s not much point looking them up at home or outside the supermarket. Would it be possible to make the app so it could be used offline as we don’t all have decent phone reception?.Score: 3/5

Very helpful!I was feeling really lost about what I could eat on a low FODMAP diet and this app has been the biggest help. I can eat a lot more than I originally thought—and this app even tells you how much of a high FODMAP food you can safely eat, which has been a big help. Highly recommend if you’re starting out on low FODMAP diet..Score: 5/5

Still a bit clumsy and not usefulI engaged a filter for Australian and NZ foods only. They became dominant but not exclusive. The list is so vast you need to be able to reduce the huge list of junk food that dominates. Until this is done it’s not practical to use. It’s a lot of money for a list that turns out to be inadequate once you try it. It’s dominated by junk food manufacturers and packaged food..Score: 1/5

Great app but recipe images oddFabulous app. Would like to see more ingredients listed and added to the food guide when possible. One small thing that strikes me as odd is the use of stock photos for the recipes. Most include images of ingredients that aren’t in the recipe - like onions and beetroot. Would be great if they included real corresponding images..Score: 4/5

Not colour blind friendlyHello, I’m red green colour blind and it is a nightmare to discern which foods are ok and which foods are not because the shades of red and green as indistinguishable to me. 10% of males are colour blind.

Life changingThis app is straight from the source that did the FODMAP research. I’m referring to the comprehensive food lists multiple times a day, and the ability to filter by which indigestible sugar a “red light” food contains is making my IBS detective work much, much easier. The diary function is easy to use, thorough and incredibly useful, though having a drawing of faeces next to your meal notes is a bit off-putting at first! There aren’t many recipes, but there are plenty more ideas online, though googling is not always as reliable as this app in finding recipes that are completely safe. I’ve pretty much adapted all my staple curries and stews based on the advice here and on the Monash IBS blog. If you are going to the effort of this fairly challenging diet I think it’s essential to have a 100% reliable, science based app to make sure you’re doing it properly. It’s impossible to memorise so many good and bad foods so having a full reference in your pocket at the supermarket gives you complete confidence in the process, rather than being hit or miss. Thanks for your work and I can feel it making a difference less than 10 days in!.Score: 5/5

Limited and confusing at timesSometimes the categorisation is confusing. For example for oats. No mention of steel cut oats or unstabilised oats unless they are listed under different names. Unclear what are the best type of oats to make porridge from. Would be helpful to have more brands listed for cereals and breads e.g. Ceres Bircher muesli, Ancient Grains Organic Breads, Healthy Bake Breads..Score: 2/5

Excellent AppThis is one of the best things I have followed. I never write reviews but felt I had to let other people know this is a fantastic app. I have followed the Mediterranean diet and fasted and tried various healthy alternative eating habits and still had terrible pain and discomfort. When I started eating foods that had been tested using science by the The Monash UNI I had an instant change to my gut and how I felt. After two days I felt so different. No more cramps or wind, Diarrhea or constipation. I have been eating anything recommended under the green dot to see how I felt initially. No milk, wheat, and certain vegetables. This has been life changing for me. I can’t recommend it enough. And I can still eat some types of cheese! Thank you Monash. I’m telling everyone..Score: 5/5

Super useful for a forgetti spaghetti like meI’ve been using this app for years and I love it! It’s so convenient to look up ingredients when I forget what does or doesn’t have fructose.

A lifesaver!This app has been an absolute lifesaver for me after my dietician suggested I try a low FODMAP diet.

Could do more!My expectations were higher after paying $12.99 for the app. I excepted to be able to add foods from the food guide into the food diary + be able to scan a barcode and it could tell me whether that food was FODMAP friendly.

Can’t share my diary reportI used to be able to share my diary report with my dietitian and now I can’t do it anymore. For an app that costs this much, I would expect to have better basic features... Also, it would be nice if we could actually take a picture of what we’re eating to register in the diary. As there’s a lot of Asian food/dishes that are not on the list, sometimes it’s easier to show the picture to my dietitian rather than writing it down on the app. There’s a lot of room for improvement..Score: 1/5
