The low fodmap diet is a therapeutic approach for those suffering from IBS symptoms. This diet-as-a-therapy starts by removing all high-FODMAP foods from your diet for up to six weeks, avoiding only those foods that might be triggers.
Dietitian's recommend maintaining a fodmap food diary to support the fodmap approach and helping you beat IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
The low-FODMAP diet is an evidence-based approach. Studies have found it leads to improvement in 7 out of 10 IBS patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
If your symptoms improve, then the app supports the process to methodically add back the various FODMAP food groups one at a time to see which ones you can tolerate. Thereby achieving a better-balanced diet and being able to eat a wider spectrum of foods. The diet is not forever. Its more like detective work to see which FODMAPS trigger IBS symptoms.
Tummi App is designed to support people with an IBS diagnosis through this detective work. The Tummi FODMAP App allows users to check foods for high fodmaps, maintain a food diary, log flare-ups and identify the foods that trigger IBS symptoms.
Using the app you will be able to manage all three stages of the low FODMAP IBS diet to learn which FODMAP foods lead to flare-ups and optimise your diet for reduced symptoms. Improve your chances of successfully following the low FODMAP diet and then re-introducing foods to understand the ingredients that are triggering your symptoms.
The Tummi FODMAP App helps many people to resolve issues with digestion, abdominal pain and bloating. The App is useful for users to monitor a variety of gut health related symptoms.

Develop strategies to keep intermittent, like bloating, in check. Many users go back to the app from time to time to upgrade their low fodmap adherence
The app should be used in consultation with a healthcare professional.
The low FODMAP diet app has been developed based on the research and clinical studies on IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) completed by Kings College and Guys and St Thomas (KCL) and Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
Adoption of a diet low in fodmaps will often help where diarrhoea, wind, bloating or constipation are caused by gut inflammation. Some users with occasional flare-ups of these symptoms can beat bloating, and other embarrassing gut health symptoms, by following the fodmap approach under the guidance of a dietitian.
