Nutrients (previously called Foodle) is nutrition at your fingertips! How much sugar is in an apple? How much potassium is in a banana? Discover nutrition facts on thousands of foods complete with all vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats, fatty acids, sugars, sterols and more compounds like caffeine.
"After a heart attack I really needed a good tool to determine the fat content of my diet. Nutrients has a comprehensive, well tended and ever expanding database of nutrition info. It's easy to search and attractively presented. Its built in units conversion ability makes it simple to compare servings of like amounts of diverse foods. Best app for this purpose I could find, and I looked at a bunch."

Nutrients even syncs your journal to the Health app making it easy to see what nutrients your consuming with other apps.
"Finally an app that gives a complete nutritional breakdown of food. This holistic approach takes the focus off calories and back onto food as a whole. As a nutritionist I highly recommend it to all my clients."

Easy to use
Great app for nutritional information.
Very disappointing. Could be 5-star but...
1st) There was no way to trial the app without paying first. I purchased it based off of reviews but, I would have liked to have a trial option first, but I gambled anyway, and lost...
2nd) Once I had the app, I was very surprised to find no systems or account setting or about the app, or any introduction on its intention, purpose and the best way to use it. So I was left just to use intuition. And this is what I discovered from that…
3rd) it seems to be fine if you just want to look up an average item such as an apple and get detailed information on it. However if you really want to track and customize, this app won't do it. It will send all the information from your journal to apple Health where you can see the running balance of stats. That's OK that its not internal, but...
4th) the biggest issue comes with the fact that you cannot add items that don't exist in their database, such as the protein powder and almond milk that I drink in the morning. Neither are in the database. So, I tried to create it as a recipe, but if ingredients aren't and the general database you cannot add it. And you can't just simply add nutritional info from the label either.
5th) This app would go from a 1-star to a 2-star if they could just simply provide a welcome intro page that gives an overview of their mission and the best way to use their app; from a 2-star to a 3-star if you could trial test before purchase, and...
6th) it would go from a 3-star to a 5-star instantly if they could allow you to add in your own items in detail if they don't have it specifically in their database (such as creating a new item by manually inputting info from label and or activating a reliable bar code scanner)
But as it stands, its a waste of my money. I was looking for something to be better than MyFitnessPal at customizing/saving AND have detailed micro-nutrient data. So far I'm still searching.
