The Monash University Low FODMAP Certification Program

The Monash University Low FODMAP Certification Program is the original testing body of foods and products for FODMAPs. It was established in 2014 due to overwhelming consumer demand for low FODMAP products, unsurprising given that irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which a low FODMAP diet is designed to treat, affects 1 in 7 adults. With a low FODMAP Certified label on eligible products, the food industry can help meet this growing consumer demand.

The term FODMAP was invented by our team – the founders of the low FODMAP diet. The original researchers found that following a low FODMAP diet improved symptoms in 75% of people suffering with IBS.

Monash University has developed an ecosystem to help translate our FODMAP research around the world. Products that meet criteria to be labeled as Low FODMAP Certified have these benefits:

  • Be listed in the #1 FODMAP App and Top Medical App in the world – The Monash FODMAP Diet App. All certified products, brands and your company logos are listed in the app with information of where to buy these products.
  • Be listed on monashfodmap.com that attracts > 500,000 visits per month. Our website provides the general public, health professionals and food industry a wealth of information on the FODMAP diet and IBS.
  • Our certified products and brands are regularly promoted across all our social media platforms reach > 100,000 followers.

Joining the Monash low FODMAP certification program gives you the license to display Monash’s stamp of approval and trademarks on product packaging, website and promotional materials.
