Meal delivery programs have been picking up steam nationwide as more people come to realize how easy, affordable, and delicious it can be to get the recipe and ingredients delivered right to their doors. But until recently, people with GI issues were unable to tap into this convenience market. Enter ModifyHealth, an entrepreneurial-based company focused on delivering healthy meals to those with dietary limitations.
Based in Atlanta, Ga., ModifyHealth offers a meal delivery service designed for specific GI conditions, such as IBS, Crohn’s disease, colitis, celiac, and SIBO. And now, this nationwide provider of gut friendly, fully prepared low-FODMAP meals has recently been recognized by Monash University as low-FODMAP Certified.
“Products that receive this certification mean that consumers who follow a strict low-FODMAP plan can feel easier knowing the meals they choose will not trigger their symptoms,” said GB Pratt, Founder & CEO of ModifyHealth.
Monash University is the birthplace of the low-FODMAP protocol and known internationally as leading experts in IBS research. Approximately 20-25% of people in the U.S. struggles with GI disorders in which dietary modification following a low-FODMAP plan is a recommended treatment.
"Beyond delivering low-FODMAP meals, we are passionate about ensuring positive outcomes for patients," added Pratt. “We're honored to have earned Monash University's certification and view this as an important step in our mission to make food as medicine simple and effective."
To make the ModifyHealth experience more convenient for subscribers, the company streamlines the process, so customers are no longer forced to deal with searching for recipes, grocery shopping, and food preparation.
The recipes have been developed by award-winning chefs under the direction of Patsy Catsos, MS, RDN, LD, a dietitian with specific expertise in low-FODMAPs. All recipes adhere to evidence-based FODMAP guidelines and thresholds while maintaining appropriate nutritional values.
