Installing Fig:

 

The Fig Browser Extension automatically checks if groceries and recipes are likely Low FODMAP on your favorite food websites. The first step is to install the Fig Browser Extension on your desktop or laptop computer.

 

Setting up Fig for Low FODMAP:

 

Once you’ve installed Fig, you’ll be asked to create your Fig profile. Your Fig profile represents your unique dietary needs and preferences. During profile creation, you’ll be given the option to select a Low FODMAP diet. You can either choose a Low FODMAP Elimination Diet or a Modified Diet if you know your specific triggers like lactose, fructose and fructans:

 

 

Using Fig to find Low FODMAP groceries and recipes:

 

Once your Fig profile is complete, shop for groceries and search for recipes online like you normally would. A Fig icon will automatically appear next to products and recipes on websites where Fig works.

 

A green icon means the product or recipe is LIKELY Low FODMAP. A yellow icon means the product or recipe MAY be Low FODMAP. A red icon means the product or recipe is likely NOT Low FODMAP.

How to interpret yellow and red ingredients:

 

Red ingredients like chicory root extract are generally high FODMAP at all serving sizes.

Some yellow ingredients like peach and raspberry may be high or low FODMAP depending on serving size. It is best to check the Monash FODMAP app to understand which portion sizes are Low FODMAP.

 

Other yellow ingredients like “Natural flavors” may be high or low FODMAP depending on their content. You can click on any ingredient to learn more:
