The supermarkets are full of choices these days, but are you making the right ones? Fooducate is here to help you be more informed and to help you get healthier.

The iPhone app will allow you to scan the barcodes of more than 200,000 food products at any local store. You will instantly be able to see how nutritious they really are. Shoppers will learn the WHOLE truth – as well as recommendations for healthier alternatives.

Fooducate gives every product a letter grade, much like on a child’s report card. You’ll also find brief explanations and warnings about that product’s nutrients and ingredients. You will find out what it is that the manufacturers may not want you to notice, such as:

  • excessive sugar and sodium
  • tricky trans fats
  • additives and preservatives
  • high fructose corn syrup
  • controversial food colorings
