It seems like everyday there is a new study or article on a specific food or product that is now deemed unhealthy or harmful. Over time, it becomes a little overwhelming when you are food shopping because you are trying to remember all of these things. We all want to make sure our families are getting the healthiest products so the new app Fooducate is a lifesaver.
This app analyzes information found in each product’s nutrition panel, shows you highlights on the product, provides a specific grade, and if the product ranks low, they give you healthier alternatives. The great thing about this app is that they look at excessive sugar, trans fats, additives and preservatives, food color, and high fructose corn syrup, many of which most consumer reports do not focus on.
It is easy to use as you can simply scan the barcode of the item in the store or you can even type in the product and search for it. You can download the app or visit their website and search for your staple products online as well.
