Ratings and Reviews
It's a start
I can't find the part that explains what "ASA" means, and the foods are rather unorthodox to an American palate (ostrich?). But I still reco it bc it helps keep a lot of info straight when your dining out or grocery shopping. Also - can we add our own foods ? That would solve some of that issue of unusual foods. UPDATE: I can't seem to update the app - anyone else having this problem? All my other apps are updating just fine...
Developer Response ,
ASA is the abbreviation for acetylsalicylic acid and represents "Salicylate intolerance". Although unusual, some of the exotic foods may be interesting to people with certain allergies. We just recently released an update with a significantly increased food database, we hope you like the new version better! Update: If you send me an email from within the app I am more than happy to help you!
Wonderful app but.........
New updates have made some foods high in salicylates as green. Misleading
This app is wonderful! Every update has been wonderful but notice a few foods missing. One is plain corn and corn on the cob. They have corn salad......don't even know what that is. Greens (collards, turnip etc) missing as well. I would also like information on medicinal herbs like milk thistle, ashwagandha, St. John's Wort etc. I find conflicting information on the web. Every food intolerance imaginable is listed as well as other allergies. Great app.
Gotta Have App
I found this app extremely useful in navigating foods given my histamine intolerance. The best part is being able to set the level of intolerance (moderate, severe, etc) which adjusts how foods may affect you. It can be tricky when not everyone reacts the same way - but as a general guideline this is awesome. Thank you!
