If you have food allergies or are just trying to be more health conscious then you are certainly aware of the fact that many foods have hidden allergens and other unhealthy things in them. So how do you know what you are really eating?
I recently discovered a new app for iphone and android that is amazing. It’s called the fooducate app. I installed this app on my android phone. It’s free. The way it works is this:
1. You scan the barcode of any food item or you can look up the food.
2. The app tells you how many calories per serving are in the food. It also gives you a letter rating from A to F and includes additional information such as if the product has known GMOS in it, the amount of processing in the food, the vitamins in it, dieting info and more.
3. You can rate the food based on if you like it or not, share it with others or comment about your experience with the food item.
4. You also are shown alternatives that may be healthier than the given food item.
