This is a brilliant device that really helps to pinpoint what's going on when you eat certain foods. I have suffered with IBS for nearly 10 years and I used to think that it didn't matter what I ate, I would still have this digestive discomfort day in and day out. I have followed the low FODMAP diet - which is also a fantastic area of science that has really helped us to understand IBS and related issues. I can see exactly how my stomach reacts to certain foods, however I can also experiment with different things in my diet and lifestyle to see if it improves how I react to FODMAPs, all using this device.
One thing that might be relevant to other people suffering with IBS: whilst the low FODMAP diet is certainly useful in minimising symptoms, it is a diet which causes you to eliminate many healthy foods that are hugely beneficial to your microbiome. Something that I'm currently trialling using my device, is drinking a strong Kefir drink each morning whilst continuing to consume all the FODMAPs that I have come to love and hate. So far I have found that my reactions to foods like onions and garlic have seemingly reduced (supported by my hydrogen scores), it's early days but very promising! Worth trying in my opinion, as the low FODMAP diet is not a long term, healthy solution if you find that you react to most or all of the FODMAPs.
A little more on the device itself - the battery lasts ages, the app is perfect for recording data, and I really have found my hydrogen scores to be accurate. My score is usually low in the mornings, but consistently jumps up after a high FODMAP meal (although this seems to have changed since I have incorporated kefir into my diet!). I also took the sorbitol test and interestingly, my score started as low but around the 90 minute mark jumped up and stayed at 10 for the following hours. It's evident from all of my results that this device really does work. The only issue with the device is that it easily collects condensation which is difficult to get rid of, but I'm sure that's something that will be addressed on future models once the company has taken off, and for now my device is still working so isn't a huge deal.
Don't hesitate if it is within your budget and you are looking to work out the best solution to your digestive troubles!

This is an excellent product that offers more consistent monitoring and better pricing than getting it done through a doctor. Used in conjunction with a low-FODMAP low-carb diet, I’ve gone from constant migraines to rarely getting them, and my brain fog has significantly reduced. It’s helping me track my efforts to reduce SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) with diet and anti-microbials. Well done Food Marble. This will make a lot of people’s lives less miserable.

Awesome device, awesome company, awesome staff.
The device has worked flawlessly for me, graphing out my hydrogen levels has allowed me to visualise how my stomach is responding to food. I have been able to corrolate many foods with symptoms and now exploring the possibllity of how it all affects SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth).
I am such an advocate for this company. They have been so helpful and prompt in responding to my questions through the in-app contact page. I can just tell that the staff are awesome empathetic people who want to change the world.

Since using this gadget I have never felt better. It gives me confidence to try various foods in small quantities and check if it agrees with me or not. I would recommend it it to anyone with gut problems.

Food Marble is a great device that allowed me to become more in tune with my body and learn what sugars I can and can’t absorb. For someone who struggles with IBS, I am always interested in ways on how to identify foods that trigger “flare ups.” Food Marble allowed me to pinpoint foods that trigger GI symptoms and ways to lessen the effects or avoid those foods completely.
As a dietitian, I would recommend this device to patients who are struggling to pinpoint their GI triggers through certain FODMAP foods. This device, in conjunction with the downloadable app, also provides various food alternatives to allow for a wide selection of foods, while limiting foods that cause GI symptoms, as well as a food diary to help keep track of symptoms and foods eaten. It’s so much easier than writing everything down! The part that stood out to me the most on being super innovative and interesting was the fact that the device was able to read how much hydrogen was being released from my breath and transmit that information to the app. To me, that was the coolest thing I have ever experienced with the device and app.
Thank you to Food Marble for allowing me to try this product, I really appreciate it.

Dear Lisa and the Food Marble Team,
Thank you for the food supplement packets. I have done some of these and found that i can actually tolerate those foods. This is all thanks to the food marble, which for me has been revolutionary in the fight again IBS. I was one of your early backers and its the best single investment i have ever made.

Thank you to all the FoodMarble team for creating Aire. I’ve been using the device since September 2018 and it has helped me so much. I suffered with bloating and stomach pain after eating and could never pin point what the culprit was and now thanks to Aire I have found the foods I need to avoid. I would also like to thank all those in FoodMarble HQ for the excellent customer support and information over the past number of months.

Finally someone developed a way to self- diagnose my instolerances! It took me 15 years of doctors appointments and being told I'm fine when I clearly was not (I was in pain almost every day) for my doctor to finally order a colonoscopy which diagnosed my lactose intolerance. But it did not test for all the common intolerances and so my other intolerance went undiagnosed. When I got my Aire, I managed to diagnose my sorbitol/mannitol intolerance in under 2 weeks!! No invasive and expensive procedures, no trying to convince doctors I'm not making things up, just eating normally and checking for hydrogen in my stomach. It's an amazing little device that had changed my life. Can't recommend enough!!

Anyone who has struggled with digestive problems knows how difficult it can be to identify the cause. The link between food eaten and symptoms is difficult to identify because of the variable time delay between the two. Diagnostic devices to help haven't been available to the general public until FoodMarble arrived on the scene, and it truely is a game changer. It provides feedback that from experience really is an indicator of gut fermentation - symptoms usually arrive shortly after FoodMarble has detected hydrogen.
It isn't quite perfect - my first Aire device failed during a FODMAP challenge but FoodMarble replaced it and also the FODMAP sugar packet - support has been excellent. The accompanying app is adequate for tracking food, symptoms, etc. but there are better options. It can be a bit finnicky when connecting to the phone at times, and sometimes decides to take a reading all by itself. But these are minor problems that are far outweighed by the utility the device brings. If you suffer from IBS or other digestive issues and need to watch your diet, this device is a must have.

I have waited a while to write this review for a couple of reasons. Initially I got the device (November 2018) and app and was impressed - the FODMAP challenges were easy to do and really helped. No, Lactose is not an issue and yes, Inulin is an issue. Great! Custom challenges (pick your own food to test) also worked really well. But on the day to day tracking and analysis I found the app was somewhat lacking and after a month or so I stopped using it.
I contacted Customer Support who, to be fair, were very helpful and told me an update for added functionality was on the way.
Roll on 4 months and I finally (yay!) got the updated app and it is just SO much better. I can really easily track my food and breaths now. Notifications are easy to add. The food database has all common foods and I can filter by type and by FODMAPs which is great. There are some things I would like to see included such as increased symptom tracking capabilities, integration to Apple Health, and being able to track the days I take medication for symptoms and I hope these will come with time.
I am now using this daily, it is good to know what I CAN digest not just what I CAN’T digest.
Thankfully FoodMarble has moved this app to the next level and look forward to what is to come (would love to see in the food database my average score over time related to each food item, that would be really useful).

I always suffered from stomach issues so the food marble digestive tracker was interesting. I have used the device now for 6 months and it has helped me identify the food that don’t agree with me. This has dramatically improved my symptoms and reduced my frustrations around food and diet.

Great product - it's helping me out with my digestion issues already. Outstanding customer service - had some issues with my device, and after a few days of debugging they replaced it, this one works perfectly.

Dear Lisa and Food Marble Team,
I just want to thank you and your team for the good work you are doing, as you know I am using your device for the last 2 mounts and I am really happy.
I am interested in nutrition, the combination of food as well as the effect and benefit to our body. As I am qualified as a personal trainer, I try to help people with the struggle of losing weight and as well as maintaining it.
Your device helped me to understand why sometimes even when I was eating clean, I couldn’t get the results that I wanted. A few years ago, I did an intolerance test that didn’t show I had any problems, but as our bodies are constantly changing, I realised by using the AIRE device that there are few things that I have to stay away from as my body now finds them hard to deal with.
And once again, I am really happy with AIRE. I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in healthy living. Thank you very much for offering me an easy and a constant opportunity to track changes in my body, have a better understanding and get the results that I want.

FoodMarble have crafted a unique device that allows you to monitor your digestion and related body factors to help better understand the effect of your eating habits. The tiny breath analyser is easily carried and seems to hold the battery charge forever. The well-designed app on your smartphone is continually evolving, and I have found this device to be an informative and excellent purchase.
I look forward to being along for the ride seeing where the developers take it in the future.

Bought for my husband. He was hesitant at first but we did the set up together so it was a fun thing to do together! It does require a few days to get used to all of the features but it is worth it, if you find a problem food. We would like some more interpretation of the results, he got a high score after his lunch but felt ok. But then the previous day, he got a high score and felt very tired, bloated and unwell. We are at the beginning of the testing phase but so far we are happy. More feedback would be great Foodmarble! thanks

Very compact device.Easy to test with. However I feel more back up
required to help user decipher results. For example how there can be a big rise in test result having had no food intake since the previous test about 2 to 3 hours later ?
Also more information needed on food quantity for user when doing a Custom Challenge to make sure it's a valid test.

Superb product! Aire brings empirical data straight to my phone.
Aire takes the guess work out of my food diary and gives me clear concise empirical dietary data.

Initially it took some time for me to start using the device, but one polite response from Foodmarble later, I was up and running. Using it is actually quite straight and kinda fun. I figured out that fructose is my problem, so app guided me to spreading it over the day so have no issues. The app was updated recently which simplified a few things, including the log-in.
The device itself is sleek and much smaller than on appeared on-line.

I suffer from Crohns and IBS so the fodmarble has been a fabulous tool to help me identify which foods are good for me and which I react to. I'd highly recommend it. The app makes it really easy to log things and keep track, and the update to it recently as made it much more user friendly - great product
