If you have complex Food Intolerances keeping track of your do and don’t list foods can be a chore. This can be increasingly difficult if you are unfortunate enough to have more than a single food intolerance or when you are reintroducing foods after a restricted diet period.
An excellent App by Baliza GmBh may be the simple help you have been looking for, allowing you to carry around with you a comprehensive but easily used source of FOOD INTOLERANCE information.
This App allows you to choose from the most common food intolerances; Histamine, Fructose, Sorbitol, Lactose, Salicylates and Gluten. Furthermore, you can combine two or more food intolerances if appropriate and the App will collate a summated list for you. By setting up Food Intolerance filters of your personal choice you will be subsequently able to screen each food for the content levels of food chemicals of concern.
Foods are colour coded according to four categories; Green (foods that can be consumed without restriction), yellow (foods that do not cause problems for most people), orange (foods that are frequent causes of food reactions) and red (highly problematic foods). Further comments are also added where relevant.
This is a highly informative App with additional notes on each of the food chemicals discussed. It therefore not only serves as a pragmatic food tool but an educational source as well. For added confidence for health professionals the App comes with a reference list.
Baliza GmBh is therefore a very helpful tool for both individual’s with Food Intolerances and Professionals that deal with patients with Food Intolerances. Not only is the information invaluable, the construct of the App is very easy to use.
As a tablet/ phone App it can be readily available whilst you shop or when dining at a restaurant, although one limitation is that it may not always cover all the commercial foods you will find in the supermarket…you will need to sort through the food labels for yourself.
All in all, FOOD INTOLERANCES by Barista GmBh is one of the best Apps of its kind, available on both Android and IOS (Apple platforms).
