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 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.
Excellent application!! It helped me a lot!!
Wastes time and money
It would be nice if there was someone to call with how to set up Allergies. You couldn’t get any info on who to email unless you purchased app, now I want to delete it
Would rate it much higher but the app says that olive oil is low in Salicylate which most articles online say is actually very high. Many people get sick from olive oil. If the programmers fixed that error, had a way for us to submit a report, or would explain why they think it is not high, I would change my rating. Hope that this is the only possible mistake.
Edit: I forgot to mention how helpful it is to have all the info re the different intolerances. I’ve learned a lot thru this app. This app has been very helpful as we have been learning about and trying to navigate multiple food intolerances. Thanks!
Your app claims that avocado doesn’t have histamine but actually avocado is high in histamine. How do I get a refund? I, paid for it today and took one look and decided I don’t need this app.
Great app so far! One question, in the info section it mentions there's a fructose to glucose ratio, but when searching for a food, I don't see it. For example banana chips, shows sucrose in grams and %, and free fructose, but I'm not seeing a glucose ratio? Please help!
