Ready to certify your product or recipe as approved for the Monash University Low FODMAP Diet™? Follow these six steps:

Step 1: Create an account

By creating an account, you’ll not only be able to submit your application, but also gain access to information about low FODMAP requirements, our services, and the latest FODMAP news. 

Step 2: Check your eligibility

Check that your product or recipe is eligible for certification before submitting your application. 

Your product or recipe application will not be eligible if it contains:

  • garlic, onion, or their derivatives
  • added FODMAPs, including fructo-oligosaccharides, inulin and polyols (other than sorbitol and mannitol), maltitol, xylitol, erythitol, lactitol and isomalt. 
To apply for recipe certification, you’ll need to submit a minimum of 10 recipes per application. 

Step 3: Finalise your application

Complete the online application process to certify your food, beverage or recipe. For product certification, you will need to submit a sample of your food or beverage for testing in the Monash University laboratories.

Step 4: Wait for product testing

The independent team at Monash University will conduct laboratory analysis on your product to ensure it meets the low FODMAP criteria. 

For recipes, we’ll use our extensive database of laboratory-tested ingredients to assess your recipes. 

Note that these analyses will attract assessment fees. 

Step 5: Join the program

Once your product or recipe gains approval, you’ll enter into a licensing agreement (licence fees apply) with the Monash University Low FODMAP Certified™ program. This means you’ll:

  • be included in the approved products featured in the Monash University Low FODMAP Diet™ App
  • be able to use the Monash University Low FODMAP Certified™ icon and trademarks on product packaging, recipes, and marketing including websites, social media, in-store advertising and print media.

Step 6: Launch!

Start using your certification with pride – you’re officially certified with the Monash University Low FODMAP Certification program.
