Food Sense Guide Comments & Reviews 2022

- Amazing App!!!

I was so excited to find the Food Sense App! It is user friendly and beautifully put together. It is clear a lot of time, energy, and love was put into the research and development for this app. Everything you need is in this app. No longer the need for multiple apps, this app has it all! I have 3 favorite features of this app. First, one feature I love is the catalog of different categories of food. I love that I can go to the catalogue, select a specific food category and then select the specific food I want to know about. It will list all the different food sensitively categories and where this specific food falls. Love I can get a quick and comprehensive look at a specific food. My next favorite feature is the Compound Info. For example, I can click FODMAPS and get a quick look at all the foods that are high in FODMAPS or low in FODMAPS. No more searching for each food one at a time, they are all there in a quick easy to use format. Lastly, I love that I can create lists. I have a list that I call “Foods I can’t Eat.” I love, love, love this app. I am so excited I found it. I have had it 5 days and I have used it every day. If you have food sensitivities, this app is just what you need.

- Amazing!

I was so thrilled to find the Food Sense App. So much dedication and hard work went into making this and I am so happy with it. I especially love that I can go through the sections of food, and open each one individually to see which categories it falls under. And it may be under many. My absolute favorite part is being able to click on a food and move it to a list that I created (you can title it yourself) which I tagged “Foods I can eat”. You can create many lists from foods that are moderately reactive to complete no-no‘s. This is an absolute find for someone just starting out deciphering their diet or for someone who just likes keeping track. It takes all the worry and guesswork completely out of the equation. Trying to figure all of this out on your own would be exhausting to say the least. Thank you Melanie for creating such a resourceful tool!

- Extremely helpful tool that makes eating less stressful!!

Melanie Avalon has created an app that caters to my exact needs of understanding why certain foods don’t agree with me. Whenever I eat something that causes discomfort/gastrointestinal distress/brain fog/ whatever(!), I log onto this app and am quickly able to figure out what compounds in that food likely are the culprits. It’s helped me narrow down which compounds specifically don’t work for me as I have been able to cross reference reactions from different foods to determine commonalities, and therefore, am able to identify what is problematic for me. I appreciate this app so much and recommend it to anyone who has inexplicable negative symptoms after eating.

- Quick reference

When trying to figure out quickly what foods to avoid or ones you can have, this app is very easy and helpful! If spices could be added!! That would be helpful as well. I love having all the food sensitivities in one quick reference!! My only other option is to go through Facebook group files on different sensitivity groups and then searching on spreadsheets. I also like that Susan Owens was consulted in providing accurate information, as she definitely knows everything regarding oxalates!

- Valuable Info Source

What Melanie has done has saved me countless hours of research and notes. I am someone who must avoid lectins, have histamine intolerances and a gluten sensitivity. While I eat clean real food I am always making new discoveries on foods that affect me and have to research why, this app will help me quickly identify that particular food. I can also quickly search a particular food and know if it’s in my prohibited group. I find this extremely valuable for me and my health. Thank you!

- Valuable Resource

Food Sense is a valuable resource for anyone on a journey of improving their health! The ability to create lists within the app and keep track of foods that do or do not work well for your individual wellness is so helpful. This allows you to investigate what compounds may be an issue for you. I love that the app also has clear descriptions for each category with resources listed and linked for further research! A great resource!!!

- So so

This has a nice easy to use format. But the lists are not very complete as an example tuna is not listed even though that's a very common food. Many other foods are missing as well. As an example eggs and egg egg whites are separate entries but there is no entry for a whole egg which many people feel is safe to eat. Disappointing because the format is very easy to use and the ability to create lists is very helpful. This app has been around a long time, sadly they have not added more foods. There is no information about food additives which cause symptoms for many people.

- Thank You!

I’ve been working with food lists for the last couple years, and what a gift to have all of the potential triggers in foods in one place. I’m always eager to learn more. Melanie includes useful information about the compounds in plain language. I’m especially impressed by the number of reputable resources she cites. You don’t always find references on food lists. I can’t imagine how much time this took. Thank you!

- Great Info and sorting tool

I just received the app and having the information about various food sensitivities in one place is very helpful. The app goes one extra step by allowing the foods to go on a self labeled list so that you can categorize the various foods to your individual sensitivities. For example, I have certain foods on highly sensitive, others in low sensitive, and then I plan to make a reintroduction list. I highly recommend it!

- Best App

This App is so helpful when shopping for people who have food sensitivity and allergies. This is the first time I’ve seen the information all in one place I also realized some foods were giving me problems but I didn’t know why until the app broke it down. Thanks Melanie you really make preparing meals so much easier!

- Great start

This app is very comprehensive for food sensitivities and intolerances. I have found most of what I’m looking for in this app. I would love to see the next level of being able to track symptoms of each food. This is something I have not been able to find in the App Store - something that lists the sensitivities, logs what you ate, and tracks how well they were tolerated (or not). Thank you for creating this.

- Great tool to heal leaky gut, lose weight

I learned that much of what I ate contained significant amounts of lectins. No wonder I was gaining weight with “healthy” food. I am grateful to find an app with a quick way to create a new list to help me balance my microbiome, heal the gut and confirm instinctive choices I make in food. This is one of the easiest apps to put to use immediately. Thanks!

- Thank you, Melanie!

I appreciate and admire Melanie’s passion for health and healing. Her own passion shows in her podcasts, food sense guide, and now, supplements. I’m grateful that she is willing to put it all out there to help others! This Food Sense Guide makes it easy to look at the foods I’m eating and how they might be affecting me. Thanks, again, Melanie, for all you do and share.

- Easy & informative

I’ve recently tried to cut out histamines and gluten and this app has helped me so much. It’s really easy to make lists of foods that you need to cut out or things you’ve tried that you need to avoid. It has mostly all the major foods you would question. Definitely recommend.

- A sensible easy-to-use specific food app

Finally! Great app that explains some of my food sensitivities. I love the three colors that alert the degree of concentration. With all this talk about nightshades, I'm happy to have an app that can easily say yes or no. Design is simple, elegant and easy to navigate. Really helps when I grocery shop now and I don't have to punch in measurements.

- Simplistic

I have been wanting to check out this app for awhile. Recently, I received this app as a “thank you” gift from Melanie. I love how this app is broken down, simple to use, and you can see the various compounds with vibrant colors. This will be very helpful as I continue the path of healing my gut!

- Invaluable!!!

Recently learning that I need to avoid high histamine foods, as well as follow a low fodmap diet, this ap is extremely helpful. It can be very overwhelming trying to find the beat foods for your body, and this ap makes it so easy! I love that I can creat a list of foods my body does well with! I love that I can easily look up specifics in foods. Thank you Melanie!

- So informative!

I love this app! The foods I have always had issues with are now making sense because with this app I can figure out what the common denominator is! It is helpful in informing me on foods that I didn’t even know contained the sensitivity for me. I am looking forward to organizing my problematic foods and moving forward to better health!


As someone recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, this app is an Absolute Lifesaver. Not only is it informative & well-organized, it’s well-made with a unique, clean design. I am impressed on multiple levels: as a software developer, as a user, & as someone with autoimmune disorder. Thank you Melanie for making this!!

- Excellent App!

This app gives me good information about certain foods and what is in them. This makes deciding what belongs in my diet much easier. I appreciate all the work an research that went into this comprehensive list. I hope it continues to grow. Thank you!!

- I like this quick reference !

This app is nice because it’s a no nonsense quick guide . I have a suspicion that I may have a gluten sensitivity and I think I’ll be using this app a lot to help me navigate which foods to eat and which ones to stay clear of.

- This App has all the things... could want to track the compounds in foods that may both you or trigger symptoms. Easy to use and very nearly every food you will ever eat. Great app!

- Fantastic and Informative App

This is a fantastic app for those with food sensitivities or simply to learn more about the foods you are eating! Melanie goes above and beyond when researching and to verify the sources and studies she comes across. She is a trusted treasure in the world of health and wellness!

- Awesome!

This is so helpful and has tons of flexibility in how you use it. You can create your own lists with your own labels and add foods. There are lots of resources and tools built in and it is very user friendly.

- Clearest and easiest list you never knew you needed!

Love this easy app. Have been showing folks whenever intolerances comes up in conversation. So glad I found it!

- So helpful to have in your virtual pocket

Such a helpful resource Melanie. Thanks for doing all the hard work of putting this together to make it easier for us to navigate our own health.

- Easy to use and comprehensive

This app is an excellent resource for checking a food/beverage for elements that may not agree with you. Could not be more straightforward. Highly recommend it.

- Amazing

This app is incredible. It’s easy to use and filled with such useful information. I’m amazed how often I turn to this useful app. Thank you Melanie for all your hard work.

- The End All App

The most comprehensive app for food sensitivities. If you have multiple sensitivities, this app will be your savior! I have had multiple apps, but this one beautifully blends the all. And I trust the research behind this one.

- A must have food sensitivity guide

Very user friendly and aesthetically pleasing. All-encompassing with great explanations and summaries for all topics/categories. I have not come across any other app that provides such an in-depth and easily accessible food sensitivity guide. Great tool!!

- Love this app

This is such an easy to use app if in a grocery store just type in a food item! Only thing that I don’t like is that garbanzo bean or chickpea is not listed 😔

- Great App! Really useful!

This is such a great app if you have food sensitivities! I have been trying a low Fodmap diet to pinpoint my tigger foods and this app has been great! I love being able to add lists as well!

- Great App!!!

I was looking for a list of lectin free food list. This app. helps me to confirm if any food I eat have lectin. It is very user friendly and easy to use. Thank you for making this app. I am a fun!!!

- Super easy and helpful

Thanks for such a helpful app it helps a lot. You can make your own list of food to avoid or eat and drink

- Well organized and easy to use!

Great app! So much info and well organized! Very easy to search and save data, love it!!

- Very vague

I was hoping for more concrete info about the quantity of compounds in particular foods. Items are grouped as either “high” (all red) or safe (green). The app may be useful if you are looking to completely avoid a substance (for example oxalates) but if you are able to eat moderate amounts of a compound and looking to know quantity per serving, this will not give you more information.

- Great info!

My patients and readers will love this! It will save them huge amounts of time and quickly be able to identify which foods they can focus on stage to steer clear of their triggers. Well done!

- Food Sense

Excellent App! It's a lifesaver for those learning about food sensitivities and an applicable way. I only wish it had more foods or an advanced version...😁

- Beth

I use this reference more often than I thought I would. It is very helpful. Thanks for compiling this.

- Extensive database!

This app has so many foods for reference for all sorts of sensitivities! A must-have for anyone trying to figure out food intolerances!

- Such a great tool!

I use the Foodsense app all the time for my own research and for my nutrition clients. It's very well researched, easy to search and comprehensive. Great job!

- Much needed resource!

Great app. Helpful information, easy to use and responsive support. I use this app daily for my many restrictions and tricky diet.

- Great App

Great App to help figure out food sensitivities! Melanie is amazing! She puts in so much time and does extensive research to help people get the best information possible.

- So helpful!

This app is a really innovative way to track and pinpoint food sensitivities. I highly recommend it!

- Easy to use

Like how easy it is to look up a food when out shopping. Easy to see at a glance. Great layout!

- Recommended

After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, I needed to manage Salicylates and Sulphur/Thiols in my diet. This app conveniently provides a one stop reference, plus much more. Very helpful.

- Fantastic app

Melanie has done a great job with this app! Heck, all her work is great - I love her podcast too! Highly recommend!!

- Very helpful app

Easy to get information about sensitivities

- Love!

This app is a game changer. So comprehensive. Great info., very thorough yet easy to understand. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

- Love It!!

Highly recommend this app—but have a request: could you please include info about lectin content in each of the foods listed? Your app would be wildly popular with the Plant Paradox followers!

- I’d love details on oat milk , and water chestnut flour ..

Update : I was wrong , about only being able to add 14 foods to a list, I figured out that you can do this , just don’t try to add the same food twice to a list, 😂 app is pretty good, it takes some of the guesswork out of trying to figure out what I can safely eat, I have a total of 30 foods .. somewhere where we can add custom foods suited to self might be a good idea too as HIT and MCAS is so individual and time spend searching internet would be good to be able to add to personal list and record foods that aren’t listed , I’d like to know details on oat milk and water chestnut flour and would love to see more foods added along the way that are both histamine and oxalate free. Initial thought 💭 ”App is good except that I can’t add more than 14 foods to a list , if we could create a bigger list I can make a “Safe foods” list ..”

- Great app

I never thought I need an app like this, but a sudden onset of a food allergy, and intolerances to histamines made me down load this. It is extremely helpful to be able to know what foods contain histamines as this is all new to me. I don’t know how I’d navigate my current situation without it. The app is really straight forward and simple to use. Melanie was very responsive when I needed a clarification on a good type, and will also add in a food that the app didn’t contain.

- Fantastic!

Awesome app for overcoming the confusion associated with food intolerances!

- Connecting the dots

I downloaded the food sense app and plugged in my IgG food sensitivity test results from 2018. I have struggled with GI distress since I was 16 (36 now). Eliminating my “red foods” helped a lot, IF for the past 18 months helped even more. But I could never figure out the connection my red foods had to one another and what made them different from my green foods. Along came the Food Sense app and BAM! Oxalates it is! The app has so many foods on it, more than were tested in my blood work, so I can easily check it and predict which foods are going to be a problem and which will be easy. I highly recommend the app!

- Thank you!!!

This is such a helpful tool! Not sure how lost I would have been on Google without this app. Plus you never know which sources to trust… I definitely trust Melanie and any information she provides. I’ve recently taken charge of my health and paid attention to my digestion. This guide will help me rule out and remove intolerances and make well-rounded food lists. Thank you!!

- Learn To Take Care of Your Health. Get this app!

If you don't know the difference between amines and proteins, or fodmaps and roadmaps; if you want to take charge of your ingestion and digestion; if you want the chance to improve your health issues and possibly add years to your life, this app can be a tremendous help with those endeavors. The information seems to be current and well researched. You will learn about the components of various food types that have an effect on the way your body works. It has a list feature that I haven't used yet, but think it will be a very useful tool. I use many apps and this is one of the best for allowing the user to choose foods that can minimize or maximize various conditions that we experience when/after has become my 'go to' food reference, quick and it.


The FOOD SENSE GUIDE is an incredibly comprehensive, simple to use & extremely helpful guide that shows the compounds found in a TON of foods broken down by categories (there’s about a dozen from Fruits & vegetables, meats, alcoholic drinks etc). For each food in the guide, the app gives you the levels / presence of about a 1/2 dozen compounds, including Amines, Glutamates, Oxalates, Salicylates, Sulfites, Thios, Nightshade & Histamines (love that the app includes this one especially being an allergy sufferer). Thanks for creating this App Melanie!! Looking forward to having it always handy when I want to check out a new/different food. Definitely give it TWO THUMBS UP & recommend it to literally anyone who eats... especially if you at all suspect you may have some sensitivities or just to educate yourself about your food choices. GREAT APP! 👍👍

- Great app!!

This app is a godsend for people with food sensitivities. Very informative and easy to use. Love it!

BEST BEFORE refers to quality: your food will still be safe to eat quite a long time after that, if stored sensibly (cool, dry ideally). Use common sense. It's fine unless it looks or smells off/odd. A rough guide to some foods, and how long after the date they can be eaten:
