Best of the Food Apps: Fooducate

By Allison Mars, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

Every Friday this summer we will be posting about a new food app that we’ve tried. There are tons of food apps out there, and our goal is to arm you with the “Best of the Food Apps”!

Having a smart phone has many benefits. Being able to check your email and facebook instantly, or google something whenever, but it can also help at the grocery store. I found this list of “27 Awesome Apps for Healthy Foodies” and decided to check a few out. I’m one of the few people on the planet who doesn’t have an iPhone, so I checked out some of the Android based ones. My thoughts about these foodie friendly apps will be featured weekly starting with the Fooducate app today:

Whip out your phone, scan a food’s barcode and a grade will pop up. Fooducate grades foods based on their nutrient content and ingredients. It can even offer you alternatives that have been given higher grades. It also tells you why the food received that grade and offers detailed explanations of both the positive and negative aspects.

Download the app now to your Android or iPhone!
