Best of the Food Apps: True Food

By Allison Mars, Dietetics Student, Sargent College


This Friday on Best of the Food Apps we review “True Food”. The True Food Network is the action network portion of the Center for Food Safety. They have various campaigns to stop factory farming and the production of genetically modified foods. This is where the app comes in, providing shopping tips on avoiding GMO foods.

True Food is a guide to learning about genetically modified foods. It offers “4 Simple Tips for Avoiding GM Foods” and news stories about GM and food politics. This app is good to have if you’re concerned with keeping genetically modified foods out of your diet or if you want to learn about where they’re found and why. If you go to the “More Info” section on the app (hidden under the menu) it provides information about organics, supermarkets and GMO, and it has a “Myths and Realities” section. Overall, True Food is useful if you’re looking to cut out GMO foods or interested in becoming involved in a campaign against factory farming.

True Food is available for download on Android and iPhone

I still am undecided about if genetically modified foods are a major concern or not. For long term health.
