You may be familiar with the little known FODMAP diet, which has proven useful for people suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols. A diet low in FODMAP foods is often recommended for those who suffer from abdominal distress caused by sugars found within certain foods.
Following any restrictive or specialist diet can be difficult, but Heali enthuses that both nutrition and personalized dieting should be simple.
Their tools are devised for those wanting to follow a healthier regime or those combatting chronic health conditions. The App contains a pervasive list of therapeutic and lifestyle diets ranging from low FODMAP to low carb, paleo to pescatarian – and many more.
Heali is designed and managed by a dedicated team of dietitians, nutritional scientists, and engineers passionate about using food for its curative properties.
The App is relatively new, so its development and algorithms are still being fully formed. However, their current offerings are extensive, with a database of over 1 million recipes, food products, and restaurant dishes. You can populate your preferences with an existing lifestyle, customize your own for a hyper-personalized nutritional profile, or use their dietician’s recommendations and suggestions.
The App enables users to take photos of menus, scan barcodes, and search for recipe ideas or ingredients. If the results aren’t quite what you’re looking for, Heali prides itself on making alternative proposals based on your own individualized needs. The Heali App is available for free download on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
