I've been using this product in the Original Book 20 Yrs + APP really Great! Names or Nbs to check, has 1 or 2 Smilies for Good or Very Good, and Grumpies for Bad or Very Bad, Neutral Face for OK. Convenient for Quick Glance OR More INFO. Should add MSG (not just full name & 621)

Just paid for and downloaded this app and the first list of ingredients I have gone to look up and half of them aren't even listed ... ??? The list appears to be pretty light on for and you have no way of knowing what the app contains til you get it... Disappointed

Hi Katie Thanks for your feedback. Depending on the product type (food, cosmetic), manufacturers can list ingredients by multiple names eg. avobenzone in sunscreen has at least 9 synonyms. We typically list only the most common covering about 80% of products. Pls email with your ingredients & we'll happily send an evaluation.

7/2022; This app is excellent for nutrition conscious label- readers. I did not know that potassium sorbate was derived from petroleum. This is one example of this superior quality reference. This deacon--with a degree in nutrition--recommends it!
