Couldn't find any items in the database so not much use. Doesn't seem like it would provide much value anyway if all it does is regurgitate the nutritional info that is right beside the barcode you're scanning anyway. Just use your eyes instead to look at the package.

Will be useful - some quibbles. I need to not poison a family member recently diagnosed coeliac (No Gluten!), but need only a small number of scans per day. I prefer not to sign in. The app recognised only 1 of the 3 products I looked at (33%, not a passing grade), and kept "using up" my number of scans for the day, even though I took the time to send in all the requested details for the 2 unrecognised products (allowing them to improve their app). Still don't know if safe.
