  • (2021-01-21) orion wolf-hubbard: I am vegan and just started using this extension. Fig will highlight any questionable ingredients and let you click them to get more information why it was flagged, I have actually been learning quite a bit from this feature. Overall its very intuitive and it's extensive list of ingredients lets you be confident it will catch anything you want to avoid.
  • (2021-01-17) Deena Taylor: I've been using FIG for about a month now and I love it. I am an oat sensitive, dairy free celiac so I have to monitor ingredients like a hawk. I still have to watch for cross contamination warnings on some things but fig has been a great initial indicator if something is even a possibility or if there's something suspect hiding in a mile long ingredient list. It's saving me a good amount of time and eye strain. haha! The creators have also been great- They helped me with a little troubleshooting and are open to feedback. Thanks FIG!
  • (2021-01-14) Sean Ostro: Fig takes all the work out of shopping for food online – no more scanning through the ingredients list for words I can't pronounce! Even though I don’t have a specific dietary restriction, Fig has helped me avoid added sugars and tons of other harmful ingredients I wasn’t even aware of. Absolutely love it!
  • (2021-01-11) M: This app is awesome! As a vegetarian who has recently been trying to cut sugar as well, it gets tedious having to read ingredient lists when I want to buy an item I'm not familiar with. This app does the work for me and let's me know if there are any ingredients I want to avoid in a product. Thank you so much to the creator for making my life easier!
  • (2020-12-02) Natasha Hirschfeld: Eating healthy really does not come easily to me. If I'm honest, it's not something I thought about at all until I realized how I was nearing 30 and started feeling kinda childish for being so okay with junk food. FIGS to the rescue, part one: this service makes it very easy for even a lazy gal like myself to fine-tune my groceries away from unbridled unhealthiness. Now I wonder what I was thinking, blindly trusting the food available to me simply because it was available, as if that meant it was just fine to eat! FIGS to the rescue, part two: I may not be able to trust all the food on the shelves, but I can definitely trust FIGS to do the real work of grocery shopping that I'd be way too overwhelmed to do myself.
  • (2020-12-02) Christian Parrish: In the era of COVID and all things at-home delivery, FIG has been a godsend! I've been able to keep to a health forward diet more simply and easily than I could have imagined -- no more tediously looking over ingredients lists or calorie / macros counts. I've tried Noom and other behavioral modification apps, and I've found FIG to be the easiest, most intuitive way to eat healthier and be well.
  • (2020-12-01) Devin Solanki: Whether dieting for a healthier lifestyle or a serious medical, I've never found a tool that was so easy to use that has made such an impact on my ability to stay committed to healthy eating. I especially LOVE the ability to read a real dietician's notes on any high risk ingredients.
  • (2020-11-30) Anthony Hagouel: Cut down on time to search for harmful ingredients. Personalized, so can't ask for more. Cute lil icon too!
  • (2020-11-30) Kevin Li: This is pretty good.
  • (2020-11-30) Kwasi Bowman: I love Fig! I have been experiencing some stomach sensitivity and my doctor told me I may want to try a FODMAP diet. It was a lot of hassle to find the right foods and understand why factors like portion size, may change the FODMAP index of certain foods. Fig takes out the guess work so I can just add an item to the cart, and move on.
  • (2020-11-24) Connor Kraus: FIG helps me avoid added sugar and artificial sweeteners. Love it.
  • (2020-11-16) Andrew Hollar: Hi there, I'm Andrew and I'm one of the creators of Fig. I'm of course biased and hope you like our extension, but I wanted to tell you a bit about why we built Fig in the first place. Up until 2014, I never really watched what I ate - no ingredients were off limits (truly the glory days!). That all changed suddenly in February 2014 when I came home from a trip to Mexico. I didn't know it at the time, but I had developed post-infectious IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), likely from food poisoning in Mexico. I was having extreme GI symptoms like gut pain, diarrhea, and constipation. I could barely sleep through the night and was exhausted all the time. Life as I knew it literally came to a stop. It took me three years and too many doctors to count to put a diagnosis to my symptoms: IBS and SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth). In 2017, I started a Low FODMAP and low sugar diet to address them both. For the first time in three years, I finally felt like myself again. I will always be grateful to those on the internet who helped me find my way back to good health. The problem? A Low FODMAP diet is REALLY hard to follow. There are literally hundreds of ingredients you need to avoid entirely or limit portions of. I would spend hours in the grocery store with my partner reading ingredient labels and trying to figure out if a specific product would match my needs. Too many days, we'd go home empty handed. There had to be a better way. Hence, Fig was born. If I've learned one thing while developing Fig, it's that no two people eat the same way - and our unique needs change over time. We've tried to make Fig as personal as possible. I also know how important and significant dietary needs can be. Fig won't be completed overnight and we'll make some mistakes along the way, but it's needed and I'm committed to getting it right. As you use Fig, please feel free to reach out to me personally with any questions, concerns or ideas: andrew (at) foodisgood (dot) com. Thanks for placing your trust in us and for helping us to build this important tool. Take care, Andrew Hollar
  • (2020-11-13) Julia Zigman: This saves me so much time having to read ingredient labels, especially shopping online when you have to search - it's so hard to tell when items are gluten free sometimes, and Fig makes grocery ordering a million times easier. Love it!!
  • (2020-11-12) Suman Gidwani: My partner is allergic to gluten, garlic, onion, and dairy. Historically, he has only been able to eat food that we make from scratch at home. But Fig has helped me find great ingredients and snacks that he can actually eat! It's changed our lifestyles and helped him feel safe in the food he eats!
  • (2020-11-12) Emilie Burton: Love Fig!!! So easy to use and convenient! It really helps keeps you on track and make it easier to stick to my meal plan.
  • (2020-11-12) Sunita Sharma: My niece has a severe nut allergy, so I feel very nervous cooking for her when she visits. Now with Fig, I can make sure all the ingredients I use are safe for her to eat. It has given me so much peace of mind!
  • (2020-11-12) Avina Sharma: I have been trying to follow a Whole 30 Days diet for YEARS, but always end up making a mistake! Fig does all the hard work for me so now I can just sit on my couch, order snacks to my home, and finally feel good about what I am eating! It's awesome
  • (2020-11-12) Anurima Sharma: Fig has helped me find treats to send my cousin (who has IBS) on his birthday, a cake to send my best friend (who is vegan) on her birthday, and so much more! Along the way, I learned so much about their diets and so much about what I was putting in my own body! On behalf of me, and my friends/family who I can now safely cook/shop for, THANK YOU!! :)
  • (2020-11-12) Jacob Lynch: I was diagnosed with IBS back in 2018. I wish I had Fig at the time! It makes it super easy to find what is in the food on shopping for and works great on Instacart! Plus I can avoid additives like unnecessary sugars and sweeteners. It's really changed the way I shop.
  • (2020-11-12) Shannon Longworth: Makes living with a restrictive diet SO. MUCH. EASIER. Thank you!!!
  • (2020-11-12) Maxwell Rebarber: I like eating healthy and Fig helps me avoid a ton of crazy bad ingredients I didn't even know were in my food. I'm learning that the US lets food manufacturers include carcinogens and other bad stuff all other countries ban. Manufacturers also disguise sugars under many, many names to hide them from us. Fig helped me learn about them and avoid these too. Super helpful!
  • (2020-11-05) Nick Dowdle: Love it! This is an incredibly easy tool to use. FIG has changed the way I navigate my diet.
  • (2020-11-02) Lance Horn: much faster to find ingredients with this then trying to find them on the page
  • (2020-10-23) Beth Connell: FIG has been incredibly helpful as I have many dietary restrictions, some even in conflict with one another. This has made planning my grocery list so much easier. Plus, I have learned a lot about the things I should be avoiding and the various ways they are described in product ingredient lists. This is a game-changer for someone like me!
  • (2020-10-23) Elizabeth Vickery: If you're looking for a way to feel less stressed about shopping (and finding recipes!) for your dietary needs, this is it. Specifically great for low FODMAP dieters, keeping every restrictive diet attainable, easy, and even fun! Great way to add variety to what can be a boring meal plan
  • (2020-09-10) Ben Schrank: My partner has IBS and SIBO and we are constantly reading ingredient labels trying to figure out if he can eat certain foods. Having ingredients flagged automatically for us is a game changer. There are still some bugs that need to be ironed out, but I've messaged support twice and they've been really responsive each time.
  • (2020-09-03) Vas Bailey: Outstanding! As a person with many diet needs--this has genuinely been helpful to me. Thank you.
  • (2020-08-24) Helen Weinberg: Mind blowing and so easy! So much less stress and time!
  • (2020-07-01) Postgrad Housing: Fantastic Product! Great for shopping for food with a severe peanut allergy.

    Hi! When I use the extension with Wegmans, I have to refresh every time to get the app to show up. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!
  • (2020-12-03, v:0.3.21) Elaine Taylor: How to get to the App
    I've resisted getting Chrome -- I resent Google taking over the world, but I downloaded it so I can use your app. I downloaded it and now I go in circles and can't get to where I open the actual app. I've used Safari and Firefox and have many apps. I've never had this problem. So, please list the steps I need to take once I open Chrome
  • (2020-07-16, v:0.2.5) Cathy Thomas: - affects to network
