The app Food Intolerances is a tool to help everyone who has to stick to a restricted diet because of food intolerances or allergies. Typical application cases are: histamine intolerance, mastocytosis, fructose malabsorption, sorbitol intolerance, aspirin intolerance, gluten sensitivity, lactose intolerance or a diet low in FODMAPs. The app was reviewed and evaluated by a medical jury and was awarded with the Digital Health Heroes Award 2018.* It contains more than 900 foods that are commented and rated in view of the following subjects: - Carbohydrate malabsorptions • Fructose • Lactose • Sorbitol and other sugar alcohols • Oligosaccharides (e.g. fructans and galactans) • FODMAPs (total) • Sucrose - Histamine intolerance • Histamine content • Tyramine content • Histamine liberators and DAO inhibitors • Problematic medicines • Food additives - Salicylate intolerance • Salicylate content • Problematic food additives - Other intolerances and allergies Filters for gluten, wheat, soy, yeast, sulfites, dairy, egg, fish, meat, pork, beef and honey - More features • Detailed info texts • Flexibly adjustable rating system • Filter function • Sorting function • Possibility to write notes and manually adjust the rating • Adjustable portion size • List of favorites • Shopping list • Blog • Direct link to Wikipedia articles • No internet connection required - Nutrition facts (in-app purchase) • General nutrition facts (e.g. energy, protein, salt, omega-3, ...) • Minerals and micronutrients (e.g. iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, ...) • Vitamins A to K • Recommended daily intake • Glycemic index and glycemic load • Nickel allergy and nickel content • Sort foods by nutrition values (works in combination with the filter function) * http://www.baliza.de/blog/files/histamin-health-heroes-award.html ** This app doesn’t rate brand specific products, but common foods and basic food categories. It provides you with all the information needed to deal with your intolerance and to avoid common mistakes.
I’ve been diagnosed with fructose malabsorption. Two of the main problems with this intolerance are onion and garlic, but this app says those are in the green area and fine to eat. That’s not true for me and it makes me believe this app is not reliable. When I went to email them through the app I got a pop up saying email was not available. I may try to get my money back from apple directly, as I can’t trust the info on here.
I have been trying to find a central source of tyramine and histamine content and failing because everything was just lists with no supporting data. It’s amazing that it actually cites the studies and reasons.
I like 90% of this app and honestly I just downloaded it and am learning more. It would be a great if it had a bar code scanner that one could use while shopping to find out about foods that contain those things that set off ones intolerances.
This app is amazing, I’m so grateful I found it and I don’t have to struggle with what to eat and what not to eat anymore!
I already know my allergies.. I thought this app would give me recipes & substitutions, disappointing.
This is a great app! The information they include is nothing like any other app that I have found. There are so many different settings to tweak it just the way you want and include all your sensitivities. It’s just great! Give it a try and the 99 cents for the upgrade is well worth it and a steal in my opinion. Keep up the great work on this life saver of an app, it’s helped me so much. Thank you!!
Great for planning meals at home and for eating out especially. Love the way you can sort foods by your particular intolerance. Really well designed. Lots of detailed notes on each food explaining things to watch out for and be aware of. Definitely the most helpful app for food intolerances of all sorts, and especially good for situations where you aren’t sure what is bothering you and want to try more than one elimination diet. Lets you do it all with one app! Thanks for a great tool.
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.
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.
