FODMAPLAB is the perfect companion app for Low FODMAP dieting. Easily lookup foods and their FODMAP contents, record your experiences and symptoms, and keep track of how your symptoms change over time.
Easily lookup your favorite foods:
- Learning about foods and their FODMAP contents has never been easier. FODMAPLAB lets you search a wide variety of foods, use and combine filters, and browse through categories and collections of foods.
- For each food we provide you with an overview of its FODMAP contents, portion size guidelines (for foods moderate in FODMAPs) and a summary of your past experiences with the food.
Track symptoms with the journal:
- The journal is designed to help you easily record your daily symptoms. You can record symptoms in categories like 'pain and cramping', 'gas and bloating', and 'fatigue and tiredness'.
- In addition to symptoms you can also add notes and food experiences to your journal.
Visualize your data and gain insights:
- We provide you with beautiful graphs and key statistics based on the data you record in the journal.
- Following the development of your symptoms over time will help you understand your progress, and the impact of your dietary choices.
All the while keeping your data private:
- We never send your data to our servers - the app has been designed to function 100% offline.
- We only store data on your device. It is then your choice if you want to share or take backups of your data.

Ratings and Reviews
Contradicts other info I have
Says some artificial sweeteners are ok but other sources say no. Doesnt say why or why not something is ok, for instance biscuit is green or ok. Do they mean a gluten free biscuit? Because a wheat biscuit is not low fodmap.
Good app for ingredient lookup
I wanted an app to let me easily look up the FODMAP status of ingredients. I tried 9 different apps, everything I could find in the App Store that seemed relevant. I tried looking up 15 ingredients in each app.
This app provides ingredient lookups through its Catalogue section.
The information is good, and seems consistent with most of the other apps.
The search feature is the best of any app I tried. It does a nice job with search-as-you-type, even finding substrings; for example, "berr" will find "blackberry" without you needing to hit enter.
It also breaks the FODMAP information into four ratings, showing which of the four irritants is present.
The official Monash University app provides more complete information on some ingredients, so I defer to it when in doubt. But this one is much easier to use.
I've rated this app slightly higher than the official Monash one. Even though Monash feels more complete and authoritative, and I use it when I can afford the time, this app is easier to use... which is important when I'm standing in the grocery store poring over an ingredient list.
Unsophisticated but easy to use
Foods are easy too look up by category. You can rate them according to your experience but then app does not save even if you click on save box. Annoying since my experiences were sometimes different than recommended.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
