FODMAP Friendly Food Program
FODMAP Friendly, one of the leaders in the low FODMAP landscape, was founded by Tim Mottin and Sue Shepherd. Sue had previously been on the research team at Monash University that developed the low FODMAP diet.
FODMAP Friendly is best known for their certification trademark. The round logo (seen below left), featuring interlocking green “Fs”, signifies to consumers that the product bearing the logo has been laboratory tested to be low in FODMAPs and safe to consume when following the low FODMAP diet, even during Elimination.
FODMAP Friendly uses DTS Food Assurance, an independent lab and Australia’s largest food testing organization for their FODMAP testing.
Their similar, but square logo (seen below right), is used for Accreditation to identify those organizations and persons who demonstrate expertise, knowledge and practical understanding of FODMAPs. For instance, FODMAP Everyday® is Accredited by FODMAP Friendly and Dédé Wilson, our co-Founder, is also individually Accredited.
FODMAP Friendly Low FODMAP App
The FODMAP Friendly smartphone app (seen below) has a database of over 600 foods including FODMAP Friendly certified products. With the app you can check if a food is high or low in FODMAPs from the convenience of your smart phone device.
The app has recently been completely overhauled (2022); it is more robust than ever! Please read these companion articles: FODMAP Friendly Lab Testing Explained, and also How To Use The FODMAP Friendly App.
