Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Winner of the 2014 Innov8 for Health competition, Wholesome is designed to make healthy eating fun, appealing, and easy. With Wholesome you can identify gaps in your nutrition and get whole food suggestions to help you improve your diet. Offering tracking of over 80 macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, Wholesome has the most comprehensive database available for whole foods.
Wholesome is also highly personalized. Using factors like your age, gender, and whether you are pregnant, Wholesome sets customized goals for you that you can then track toward. Want to set your goal higher for a particular nutrient like protein? You can adjust your goal for each nutrient in the Settings page.
With Wholesome you can:
- Track what you eat to find out what nutrients you are not getting enough of in your diet.
- Find out what to eat when you’re low on a particular nutrient, like iron.
- Add your own foods into the app by entering its nutritional content.
- Set your own goals for each nutrient, or default to the USDA guidelines for your age, gender, and activity level.
- Maintain your food diary: add or remove foods to any day in the last week.
- View Food ‘Tips’ to learn about selecting and preparing whole foods for the most nutrition.
- Learn about each nutrient’s health benefits
The ‘tips’ section features content like: pesticide risk and when to buy organic, how to select foods at the store, how to store them at home, how to prepare them for the most nutrition, their glycemic index rating, their GMO risk, whether they are safe for pets, and much more!
Wholesome is intended to help you maintain a natural whole-food diet in which a full spectrum of nutrients are consumed for optimal health. It is not intended as a calorie-counter or weight-loss program, though it does sum up calories.
The database is comprised of whole foods and common pantry items and does not contain a barcode scanner feature. The data and recommendations are reliably sourced from the USDA.

What's New in Version 4.2
Minor bug fixes.
Updated food database.
What an amazing interface!!!
I never rate apps but I have to show my appreciation to the creators of this one. I was looking for a food tracking app that tracked good food. I used other food trackers for years and wondered why I needed their database to track the processed junk I shouldn't be eating in the first place. Who cares if you have millions of items in a database if 90% of them are foods that are bad for you. If you are tracking the food you ate at McDonalds should you really be using a tracking app? I digress...
So I thought a tracker would exist that showed healthy foods to eat but Wholesome is another level. I never thought I could care so much about micronutrients! It is one of the most beautiful home screens I've had pleasure of using and I look forward to eating healthy and caring what I put in my body more than the old calorie counter. Good job husband & wife that developed this! I'm only on this for a day and shared app with friends and wrote this. Thank you!!!
Complete nutrition app
I'd been looking for an app that could do more than track protein, fat and carbs. This app contains many details on the vitamin and mineral content of foods. It's extremely helpful when you're wanting to track nutrients and ensure you get what you need rather than just count calories.
This was just what I was looking for. I have only used it 1 day and already know by what I see that it's going to work well. Thanks so much for putting together such a helpful app.
