FoodMarble Breath Test {with Aonghus Shortt}

Aonghus started working on FoodMarble back in 2016 when his fiancée was suffering with gastric issues. Aonghus was just 30 years old at the time.

After several invasive medical tests and countless prescriptions making no difference, he knew there had to be another answer.

He then launched FoodMarble in 2018, not only to help his fiancée, but the millions of people searching for an answer to their digestive issues. Many of us have tried everything from swapping diets, to cutting out foods and found no solution.

FoodMarble got its name because a marble is unique; no two are the same. FoodMarble views the gut in a similar way. Since we are all unique, FoodMarble stuck for the company name.

The goal today is to discuss their pocket-sized device which helps take the guesswork out of eating.

Aonghus Shortt’s Background

It’s not as if just anyone could create a device like the FoodMarble AIRE. It’s incredibly technical.

So, I asked Aonghus about his background prior to FoodMarble.

Aonghus had been coding since he was in his teens. He then studied mechanical engineering, followed by a PhD in electrical engineering at university.

Just prior to FoodMarble he worked for a company as a data scientist.
