The Food Marble breath tester and app will help you find the foods that work for your digestive system.
It is a personal breath testing device that can measure levels of hydrogen and methane, much like a mail-in SIBO breath test kit. Food Marble can help us better understand, manage, and treat SIBO—as well as help us detect which foods may be aggravating your symptoms.
The food you eat travels through your stomach and into your small intestine for absorption. Anything that isn’t digested continues on to your large intestine where bacteria break it down in a process called fermentation.
When the bacteria start fermenting the foods, they release gases, such as hydrogen and methane. If these gases build up too rapidly, they can cause symptoms like abdominal pain and bloating.
These gases also cross into the bloodstream and then the lungs before being exhaled through your breath. By measuring these gas levels with the Food Marble device, you can get real-time feedback to help you determine whether what you ate is right for your body.
