This app was designed by someone with IBS who discovered the low-FODMAP diet to help with his symptoms. It’s meant to simplify the FODMAP diet to its most basic elements, by collecting over 600 FODMAP-friendly foods in one place. The database shows you the full FODMAP content of each food, and allows you to search by foods and categories and then rate foods by how your body responded to them.
