Do You Know What You Are Eating?

Are you confused by the nutrition labels that appear on items when you go food shopping? Are you concerned about whether you are eating the right foods? Need to control sugar, artificial ingredients, additives, preservatives and carbohydrates? Well, you’re in luck – thanks to an app on my smartphone, Fooducate, I am able to scan the barcode on packages and review not only the ingredients of each item, but also learn about its nutritional value.

Fooducate works on all Apple and Android mobile devices. All you need to do is download the Fooducate app to your smartphone, scan the UPC barcode of a product in question, review and analyze the information found in each product’s nutrition panel and ingredient list, and see recommended alternatives. Fooducate has a rating system for each item based on its nutritional value.
