HOW SHOPWELL WORKS
ShopWell takes the guesswork out of deciphering food nutrition labels while you shop at the supermarket by providing you with personalized food scores. ShopWell’s scoring system and scanner assesses foods based on your age, gender, health goals, diet needs, and your ingredient and nutrition preferences.
Food scores range from 0-100 and are bucketed into three categories: Green scores are a strong match for your diet, so are typically okay to eat in normal portions. Yellow scores are a medium match for your health, so you should read the labels carefully. Red scores are a weak match for your diet, or contain a potential allergen so these foods should be avoided or only be eaten occasionally in small portions.
ShopWell draws on trusted resources and guidelines set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Institute of Medicine (IOM), and the latest peer reviewed research.
ShopWell works with United States based grocery foods only.

Great app! But I have some requests
I love this app. I realized very quickly how poor my diet was and changed my shopping/eating habits instantly! Salads I thought were good are bad, snacks I avoided are in fact fine.
The user interface is good and pretty intuitive.
I do have a couple of request though...
I understand that it is difficult to cover the vast array of foods out there and that it's an ever changing landscape, but the database could be expanded. I find it covers about 60% of what I scan.
I would love to see a GMO option in the "avoid" list. While it's still unclear if GMO products are health issue, choosing foods from producers with environment/community responsibility is our duty and will impact on the future of farming methods.
As another reviewer mentioned, more specific sugar levels would be useful. Some fruits (especially dried fruits), for example, are inherently very high in sugars but don't trigger any alert. Specifying "added" sugar alone isn't enough.
Other than those minor requests, this is a really awesome app!!
My husband and I use this app constantly and it's changing how we shop and eat! It's so easy and fast and helps us make MUCH better choices. He has an intolerance for corn and nuts because of a digestive issue and it's so much faster for him to find products he should avoid AND better choices the app suggests. I try to avoid sugar and I've been amazed at how many foods in the grocery store have added sugar. My favorite part is the better suggestions. It doesn't just tell you to avoid a product; it suggests better, healthier ones. They're usually on the same shelf!
I used to love the app
I'm quite disappointed in the new update. When I scanned things today it kept popping up as having dairy, gluten and wheat! So I hit the ingredients button and it's reading "sunflower butter" and classifying it as dairy because it says "butter". To me, they're tried to make a shortcut, thus, providing inaccurate information and ultimately very poor customer service. The missions are gone, as well. I enjoyed doing them. Please correct the ingredient "sensitivity" and bring back the more accurate scanning process. Thank you.
