Take charge of your food sensitivities! Reactions to various “natural” compounds in foods can often create an array of health problems, from the GI tract to skin issues to neurological and hormonal imbalances. Food Sense helps you identify your potential food sensitivities and minimize food reactions.

FOOD SENSE includes:

- An easily searchable catalogue of 300+ foods.

- The general levels of amines, histamines, glutamates, oxalates, salicylates, sulfites, and thiols in various foods, as well nightshade status.

- An overview of these various compounds, including typical reactions for those sensitive, and lists of foods high and low in them.

- The ability to create your own personal lists.

- Quick instant access to the levels of these compounds for anything you may eat! 

“My patients and readers will love this! It will save them huge amounts of time, and they can quickly be able to identify which foods they can focus on stage to steer clear of their triggers. Well done!”

This App Is EXACTLY What I Needed!!

I’ve been needing this app for so long!! I was always neurotically trying to figure out what compounds I was reacting to, and now I can see it all in one place. {sigh of relief}. The app is super easy to quickly search through which I like. I find myself constantly referencing it... even though I already know the answer most likely 😂 But seriously, so easy, helpful, and awesome. I also love that you can make your own lists. Some other people seem to want it to address their one issue super intensely, but the way I see it, this is best for getting a general overall picture of things... which is probably more helpful in the end by being less neurotic. Love it.

Quick reference

When trying to figure out quickly what foods to avoid or ones you can have, this app is very easy and helpful! If spices could be added!! That would be helpful as well. I love having all the food sensitivities in one quick reference!! My only other option is to go through Facebook group files on different sensitivity groups and then searching on spreadsheets. I also like that Susan Owens was consulted in providing accurate information, as she definitely knows everything regarding oxalates!

Great Info and sorting tool

I just received the app and having the information about various food sensitivities in one place is very helpful. The app goes one extra step by allowing the foods to go on a self labeled list so that you can categorize the various foods to your individual sensitivities. For example, I have certain foods on highly sensitive, others in low sensitive, and then I plan to make a reintroduction list. I highly recommend it!
