What's New in Version 1.8.8
- To make it simple to understand the amount of sugar in a scanned product we have added how many teaspoons of sugar it has. While at it we also added the % of DV (Daily Value). You find this in Nutrition view.
Great for Gluten and Lactose
I am new to the whole gluten free world, but am also lactose intolerant, and this app is definitely making it easier. Even though I only use it for gluten and lactose, there are several allergy/intolerances it can be used for. I love that I can scan the product and it not only tells me if it's safe for me, but also gives me a list of alternatives. I tend to shop at mainstream supermarkets, and of course not every product I buy is in the app, but I find that most are. If the product isn't listed, it gives you the opportunity to take pictures of it and submit it to be listed. I haven't tried this yet, so I'm not sure if it works or not. Overall, I am happy with it and so far it is my go-to app for gluten free.
Just waiting for more allergens added
I love that it's fast and easy to scan barcodes, and that all the ingredients show in a large, easy-to-read font. The only thing for me is that I'm allergic to A LOT of foods: peanut, soy, barley, coconut, fresh fruits and vegetables (oral allergy syndrome), raw egg yolk, and fish&shellfish (my biggest/worst allergy); I really need some of these bigger allergens in the system of this app to make this extremely effective for me. I have requested these in their in-app requests, so now I'm waiting. I will be using this app to look up all ingredients though, since it's so much easier to read this screen rather than on a small print label. Once there are more allergens added, this will definitely be a five-star app for me!
Would like more
I have had this app for over a year requesting corn free. I have corn allergies and corn comes in so many forms and names I have a list from my allergist it is difficult to remember all the different additives and hard to read the small print on the packages.
I would find it amazing if ipit could add this for people like me to use. Finding corn free products is very difficult. Corn and gluten are in almost every single product on the shelf. People who are allergic to gluten at least have many more options and labeling of "gluten free" on the label. Where as some products might say hfcs free but still have Carmel coloring or another additive that has corn in the product.
