NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — FoodMarble, a cutting-edge digital digestive health company, today officially introduced the world’s first personal digestive tracker to the US market: FoodMarble AIRE. Launched in December 2018, the pocket-sized breath analysis device is designed to empower a healthier gut and minimize discomfort by combining leading digestive health research with the latest sensor and mobile technology. This device uses existing hospital technology, but is smaller and more portable. The accuracy of the device has been scientifically confirmed by top gut health experts through clinical trials, peer-reviewed and published studies. FoodMarble AIRE connects via Bluetooth with a smartphone app. It is based on hydrogen breath testing technology, and techniques used by top gastroenterology departments worldwide.

The FoodMarble AIRE is a patented technology that helps people with digestive problems to reduce symptoms. It allows them to track their food intake in real time. However, it’s especially useful for those with food intolerances such as IBS, a disruptive digestive problem suffered by 12 percent of the world’s population. And while up to 40 percent of adults worldwide suffer from digestive issues, IBS remains the most common gastrointestinal disorder and a chronic condition that can cause emotional stress including anxiety and depression, and that requires ongoing management strategies.

“I initially created FoodMarble for my wife who was suffering from IBS and placed on a series of medications that didn’t help, but upon discovering that billions of people around the world were going through their daily lives with intolerable levels of indigestion, discomfort and pain, I wanted to do my part to help” said Aonghus Shortt, CEO and co-founder of FoodMarble. “Since launch we’ve sold over 20 thousand devices that are helping people around the world take control of their digestive health and relieve debilitating symptoms; we’re looking forward to increasing that number exponentially as we grow.”

While breath testing is popular for diagnosing digestive disorders and discomfort, it’s not invasive and patients are comfortable with it. However, it can be done in a clinic and takes many hours. The testing protocols and interpretations of the results can vary and you only get a snapshot of your digestive health when you take the test in a hospital. FoodMarble, however, allows continuous, validated home-based testing that, in turn, empowers a more holistic and accurate approach to personalized food discovery as well as long-term management of your gut health.

FoodMarble launched the 6-Week Discovery Plan (and FODMAP Test Kit) to coincide with the US rollout. This allows users to determine their tolerance for the following food components: Lactose and Fructose; Sorbitol and Sorbitol. Access to in-app features, recipes, and a three-stage support program including Baseline, Reset, and Discovery provide users with the tools and information they need to manage negative symptoms like gas, bloating, cramping, and pain.

FoodMarble AIRE device retails for $179 and is available at FoodMarble.com and Amazon.

The FoodMarble 6-Week Discovery Plan retails for $49 and the FoodMarble Combo, which includes the AIRE and 6 Week Discovery Plan, retails for $228.
