  • Great base app for intolerances

    The idea of this app is amazing. It has tons of foods and lots of uncommon foods as well. What would really make this a 10 star app is if the nutrition content section (for example, the fructose content in my case, with fructose malabsorption) were displayed per serving size rather than per 100mg. It's already color coded as high to low fructose content with little explanations, so that's pretty great, but i know that when trying to calculate the rough amount of fructose in two cloves of garlic or a single apple would be tough without a scale (I don't have a kitchen scale and I'm more familiar with US style serving sizes rather than gram amounts even though I don't even live in the US). I'm sure that would take a ton of inputting but I'd praise the developers and would definitely pay extra to have that as an extension!!

    Overall this is a great app for combining various food intolerances into one comprehensive guide. Very useful! For future updates, I would love to see the available filters include a more detailed breakdown for those following a FODMAP diet. Right now this app groups FOFMAP foods under two categories (fructose & sorbitol intolerance), but doesn't provide a filter for oglios or polyols like the Monash University FODMAP app does. I would also love to see Tyramine as an available filter as well. Right now tyramine info is buried in the comments section as opposed to being a separate filter.
  • Great app!

    This app has everything you need for quickly assessing if the food your considering will trigger you. It's complete with color coding, and cross referencing for every kind of allergy trigger. It found foods to be cautious of with my latex allergy as well. It also has a way to add glycemic load potential of your body building. So glad I bought this, makes shopping so much easier and the coding is customizable for your unique body. Wonderful!!!
  • Love the app but...

    This would be a 5-star app IF it had the feature of letting users add custom/new foods. Until that time, I'm forced to use a similar app that is not as good, because I can add additional foods I'm intollerant to. When this happens and I can do that, I'll be back and will give it 5 stars!!
  • THIS APP IS A LIFE SAVER

    Can't live with out this app! Very user friendly and well researched. After being diagnosed with Histamine Intolerance, it was SO stressful figuring out what I could eat without having a reaction. This app takes out all the guess work and educates you. Easy to use on the go. I am so thankful to have found it!

    Dairy, fructose are out for this histamine intolerant girl. This app has saved me many times. My favorite part is that I can customize the things I've found to be ok or put comments in. Since everyone who suffers from these afflictions is just a little different, this app is an amazing reference to have.
  • Great for histamine intolerance

    This app is fantastic for when I'm shopping or eating out and trying to work with my histamine intolerance issues. It tells me what foods and medicines are good and bad, by degree, and the reasons for it. It also warns me when foods contain substances that often cause migraines, which is great. It uses info from the EU, which is much further ahead in understanding HI than the U.S. It's easy to customize for different intolerances, like gluten. Very pleased with this app!
