Best of the Foodweb: Fooducate

By Kelli Swensen, Dietetics Student, Sargent College


As much as I love looking at mouthwatering pictures of food, I have become obsessed with this week’s food blog. Fooducate was started by Hemi Weingarten, a dad of three toddlers who was tired of trying to decipher food labels and health claims. He immersed himself in learning everything there is to know about food, nutrition, and food marketing strategies. This passion for taking the mystery out of food is the driving force behind Fooducate. The blog is dedicated to helping consumers who want to be healthier make conscious decisions at the grocery store by becoming better informed about food labels and confusing ingredients. The posts are short, concise and extremely interesting, so go and click on one of the links below and begin your fooducation! Fooducate also has a really cool app that is worth checking out!

Thanks for the kind words Kelli.
Our iPhone / Android app lets consumers scan the barcode of a product and immediately see how healthy it really is. The app also offers healthier alternatives.
here are the links to our app:
