AIRE is a breath test device. It's small but powerful. Together with its app it can help you find the foods that are most compatible with your digestive system. We like to think of it as a personal digestive tracker.
When food isn’t digested fully, a lot of it will turn into gas in the gut. Many people cannot efficiently handle this gas, so it builds up causing bloating, pain and even diarrhea or constipation.
Fortunately, you can measure how much of this gas is being generated, since some of it will pass from the gut into the bloodstream. The gas then travels in your blood and when it reaches the lungs, it exits on your breath, where it can be measured.
The technology for doing this is used in the top digestive health clinics and gastroenterology departments worldwide.
We’ve adapted the technology, making it smaller, portable and more affordable for personal, everyday use.
First we test how your gut responds to some very common carbohydrates like fructose and lactose.
Construct meals and snacks from foods that suit your unique digestive system.
Track your food intake, gas levels, stress and sleep to start bringing your symptoms under control.
*FODMAPs = Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols. These are certain types of carbohydrates found in a lot of foods, that ferment rapidly into gas in your gut.
Aonghus wanted to build a device to help his girlfriend find which foods were compatible with her, but he soon realized that such a device could also help a lot more people around the world.Early 2015
He set out to build a breath analyzer more affordable and accessible than those available in hospitals, to help people see how their body responds to different foods… And it worked!Late 2015
FoodMarble was formed and was accepted onto HAX, the world’s largest hardware startup accelerator. This meant that half the team moved to China to develop the prototype into a consumer grade device, while testing got underway back home in Ireland.Early 2016
One of our medical advisors, previously working as a gastroenterologist, loved the idea so much that he got on board to help us finish AIRE and bring it to the world!April 2016
We couldn't believe how much interest, love, and support we got when we showed people what we had built at the HAX Demo Day in San Francisco and on social media.May 2016
Since Demo Day, we’ve evolved our design even further and after a lot of work we’re finally ready to introduce the finished product!Summer 2016
We are offering a small inital batch of pre-orders for a special early bird price of $125. Click here to find out more.
