Lifesaver I am lactose intolerant and have a milk protein allergy. I love this app, it is definately my go to when I'm grocery shopping. It doesn't have every item but they have said their working on adding more. If apps like this didn't exist shopping would be a lot harder because Google searches suck and are not helpful at all. Also if you scan an item and the app says you can't have they do provide alot of alternatives.
This is a life saver! I was recently diagnosed with a gluten and egg allergy, so it's difficult to know what contains gluten when some packages say "gluten free" and others don't. This app makes shopping easy, fast, and gives me peace of mind. And it teaches me by telling me what ingredients are allergenic. I think the UI could be a little better aesthetically, and the inventory isn't entirely complete yet. But this is certainly a necessary app for those with special dietary needs/wants. Thanks much, guys! Keep up the great work!
Great app to help parents and friends This is a great program to help parents who are new to food allergies (and even those who aren't). It is also great for friends and family members who want to make sure they buy things that are safe for your allergy kid. One feature we need is the ability to track the allergies for multiple people. That would help for grandparents and families with children with different allergies. I'll give the app 5 stars when that's available.
I tested this on some products I have at home, with poor results. Some items that were certified by the Non-GMO Project were marked as ‘not a verified non-GMO product.’ The app seems well-designed, but the data seems dubious.
Being Lactose Intolerant was over the mood to find this app cause thought it would help immensely as its a new allergy for me, however the items ive tried to scan from the kitchen cupboards are not on here! Will try it on my week shop but not holding my breath. Dissapointed to say the least
Missing something This is actually a great app. Let me know when you put Corn, all its forms, on your list. I can't fully utilize the app if my allergen isn't even on your list. I did select it on the wish list, I guess I'll just keep reading the labels.
Now you can check how many teaspoons of sugar there are in scanned products!
You can as well see the % of the daily value for sugar.
Happy scanning and enjoy!
