About this app


Peel is the easiest way to learn about and detect the harmful ingredients that may conflict with your food intolerance or diet:

With PEEL SCAN, you can scan the ingredients list on any food label, restaurant menu, or recipe and get an instant answer: "Avoid" or "Safe" based on your food intolerances or allergens you want to avoid (e.g. Gluten, Dairy, Yeast, Fructose, etc.), your dietary considerations (e.g. No Added Sugars, No Artificial Sweeteners, No Harsh Food Colorings, etc.), or a popular diet you follow (e.g. Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, Palm Oil Free, etc.).

With PEEL SEARCH, you can skip Google and lookup thousands of ingredient names to instantly check if they fit your diet.

With PEEL UPLOAD, you can upload any image from your photo gallery (screenshots from websites or food apps) and instantly analyze its content to spot harmful ingredients.

Peel will help you make healthy choices for you and your family :)


▶ WORKS ON ANY INGREDIENT LIST, NOT LIMITED BY BARCODES: Peel does NOT rely on static barcode databases (which are constrained to geographical regions resulting in limited or outdated data points). Peel uses OCR technology and therefore allows you to scan and analyze an ingredients list in real-time. As long as there are ingredients, in English, you’re getting an instant assessment.

▶ GIVES SIMPLE DIET-BASED SCIENTIFIC ADVICE: Peel provides straightforward advice: "Avoid" or "Safe to eat" based on your diet preferences. No generic product assessment, no information overload. Peel gives scientific & objective assessment of ingredients, backed by our Expert Nutritionists and Nutritional Therapists.

▶ ANALYZES MULTIPLE DIETS AT ONCE: If you select more than one diet in Peel (paid plan), every time you use Peel, you will get an aggregate recommendation based on all your diets.

Great experience with the app so far! It's extremely comprehensive and really opens up options for those of us who don't always have the time to cook meals from scratch. Being able to use the app to quickly look up all ingredients without missing anything is awesome. I for one don't have every single ingredient ever made out of animal products memorized as they can be unrecognizable words, so this app is immensely helpful!

was told about this from reddit last year, just downloaded. was super excited to try it out and discovered i was only able to select one diet restriction and everything else is behind a paywall... immediately undownloaded and was disappointed. at the very least allow people to choose three, what happens if people are allergic to food colorings, animal products AND gluten? shouldnt have to pay when theres other apps that allow multiple diets for free.

Thank you for the feedback. You're absolutely right: a year ago, the app was 100% free. Since then, we got expert nutritionists onboard to build the most accurate diets yet (different approach than barcode scanners). This required a sustainable plan for the project. Could you please email us at so we can fix this for you?

It's a simple app that gets the job done. Can be used in many situations, not only on food labels. The app scans ingredients. Not barcodes. So works on food menus, online food sites, etc... keep up the good work!
