• Best Allergy Apps of the Year 2020

The app Food Intolerances helps you if you have to stick to a restricted diet after being diagnosed with food intolerances, sensitivities or allergies. It offers you an extensive food list with more than 1000 foods, tables with the most important data and detailed comments for assessing the tolerance.

Food Intolerances can, for example, be used for histamine intolerance, mastocytosis, a diet low in FODMAP for IBS, fructose malabsorption, sorbitol intolerance, lactose intolerance, salicylate intolerance or gluten sensitivity.

Our app was tested by the medical jury of MeinAllergiePortal and was awarded the Digital Health Heroes Award 2018 at the 13th German Allergy Congress*.

What’s New

Version 4.9

• You can now sort by the overall color-rating.
• The recipe function now suggests frequently used ingredients.
• There are several new foods in the database, including gluten-free oats and naan bread.
• We optimized the order of the search results.
• The keyboard automatically hides when you scroll the search results.
• We added a new button in the setup that enables you to display all individual FODMAP values (e.g. lactose and fructose). Up to now you had to configure them separately.
• If you set the degree of a sensitivity to "no restrictions" you can now learn the percentage of the maximum recommended intake per portion (based on the moderate setting).
• We updated the information in the database and corrected some minor issues.
• We added new chapters to the instruction manual.
• There are numerous additional detail improvements.

• Nutrition in-app: We revised the presentation of the nutritional values.

We really hope that you like the new version! By the way, if you want to support us, we would be very happy about a review in the App Store!

Wonderful app but.........

They did another update and added more foods but they list corn, popcorn and the like as safe and according to everything I have read, corn is one of the worst foods for salicylate . Also figs are listed as safe but I have read they are moderately high in salicylate.

New updates have made some foods high in salicylates as green. Misleading
This app is wonderful! Every update has been wonderful but notice a few foods missing. One is plain corn and corn on the cob. They have corn salad......don't even know what that is. Greens (collards, turnip etc) missing as well. I would also like information on medicinal herbs like milk thistle, ashwagandha, St. John's Wort etc. I find conflicting information on the web. Every food intolerance imaginable is listed as well as other allergies. Great app.

I have dietary fructose malabsorption and the app’s been a big help in three ways:

1) The obvious way; when I come across a new food or want to look something up, it’s great having a convenient trusted source (and one that keeps comments)

2) What I can and can’t eat is pretty complicated and I don’t expect others to keep up with it. This can lead to some problems when others cook though - I don’t want to refuse my in-law’s Christmas dinner or seem difficult. They’ve downloaded the app now too and it’s easy for them to make sure there’s something I can eat (especially since they only need to think about my weird restrictions occasionally).

3) Fructose malabsorption isn’t especially well known - the app can be nice for establishing a bit of credit when I need to tell someone about my restrictions (“good odds he’s not entirely making this up”).

Thanks for the great app. Has definitely been a quality of life improvement.

Nice app but disagree with some foods

It’s nicely organized, and I like the shopping list. The descriptions of different studies in things like bananas and avocados and peanuts is great, I love being informed to make my own choices.

But the colors of “danger” level are clearly subjective. You NEED to read the actual description, not just avoid every food that’s yellow, orange or red. Example: labeling “polenta” as VERY HIGH in histamine is disingenuous. They explain it’s because it’s “usually made with Parmesan”. Uh maybe some recipes? But that doesn’t mean polenta itself is high in them.

You also need to update your MSG guidance. “Chinese restaurant syndrome” as you call it is founded in racism and not science.
