AllergySafe is a mobile application that allows you to choose from a list of 7 of the most common food allergens, create your profile, and find safe to eat foods at several of the most common restaurant chains.
To start with, you set up your profile, and you can select what you are allergic to. Upon completing your profile, you can browse through several restaurants, view their complete menus, and based on which allergens you saved in your personal profile, you can see only the foods safe for you to eat. You can also search for restaurants near your location.
Note that certain foods may be processed in the same factory as a certain allergen, or there may be some risks of allergen cross-contamination. Some examples of this potential allergen mixing include, but are not limited to: shared fryers, cutting utensils, oils, and other manufacturing equipment. However, AllergySafe takes this into account, and all foods with such constraints will be shown with asterisks (*).

Ratings and Reviews
The app helps find restaurants with menu items based on allergies as in the user’s profile. The UI is slick and easy to use as well !!
Soybean oil not considered
My daughter has a soy allergy, but in double checking the info on this app, I’ve found that they don’t consider soybean oil when trying to accommodate a soy allergy. Be careful if you have a soy allergy—double check on the restaurant’s website. I love the idea of this app, but it needs to be more accurate when dealing with health.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for your feedback. We have not seen Soyabean Oil listed as an allergen in fast food restaurant menus. However, in future release, we will update the app to provide the warning about Soyabean Oil used in cooking or as an ingredient.
I am allergic to coconut and this app helps me find the best fast food places that fit all my needs.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
