About this app

Nickel Navigator is a support tool for individuals on a low-nickel diet. A food journal lets you track your daily nickel intake. You can browse though the food groups to see which foods are the lowest or highest in nickel, and you can search for a particular food and drill down into its data to understand how its nickel content varies. The data is a compilation of 200 sources, including national food studies and scientific journal articles. The average values are weighted to your location so that the samples most geographically relevant to you are given priority. No internet connection is required.
Note: The low-nickel diet is not for weight loss. It is intended for use by individuals with a diagnosed nickel allergy.

I love that this app is based on scientific backed datasets. I found out that nickel was the culprit behind my migraines, skin allergies, fatigue, and full body joint inflammation. After I found out, I was too scared to eat anything but an egg on white rice. I was hungry and overwhelmed trying to figure out what was safe. This app has everything I need, and has made the change so much easier.

Very helpful to get an idea of nickel content in various foods. It helped me manage my nickel allergy and reduce symptoms. It is nice to see sample variability in order to asses how risky a good is, if there are regional differences in nickel content, and if a single sample is dramatically altering the average nickel content of a food.

Pretty good except when it says avacado very bad but guacamole ok? Isnt guacamole raw avacado? Then lettuces ok, iceburg ok but possibly very high!?? Also it would be nice if everything was based on 1 cup of food and drinks and 1tsp for cooking items.. as of now these ounces mean nothing to me.. just hoping its just avarage amount people eat.
