Just installed this app. So far 10 out of 11 things have not come up in the data base. So i don't even know how well this will work. Its ok.
Doesn't work in Canada, even for Walmart products Didn't recognize UPCs on items that I bought at Walmart and am pretty sure are also sold in the US. (Tried Great Value Crisp Rice 525g; Quaker Instant Oatmeal High Fibre Raisins & Spice 425g 10pk, Equate Original Mint Antibacterial Mouthwash 1L.)
Great for non-food items Great product information on consumer goods. However, I would not recommend this app for food products. I would expect foods with GMO ingredients would rate lower than organics, but that is not the case. Rates solely based on nutrition, which is useful, but should also account for genetically modified foods
Very helpful app, but lacks Cdn database I love this app, especially the health ratings and the scanner, which is very cool. Just wish there was a bigger Canadian product database.
To ryan You're obviously A MORON. There has been extensive testing on gmos on mice causing suppressed auto immune functionig and respiratory supression from being fed gmo peas. Do your research and don't let yourself be another sheep. Gmos not only cause health problems but it isnt humans place to play god and screw with dna. This will eventually cause the sterilization of ALL plants, and we are going to run out of any food at all because of idiots like you always willing to believe what their told.
Misleading Lots of conflict with EWG and my own research, can't believe they'd list some of these products as green or healthy... uninstalling and will be using my own judgement/research and EWG's site and apps for info ...
Fixed scanner incompatibility for some devices.
