How often have you walked into a store and seen a product that peaked your interested, but once you started reading the ingredients, you realized you’re allergic to an item in it or it’s something that’s not good for you? We’ve all been there. Well the new app ipiit helps people with food allergies and other dietary restrictions find items that work best for them in the grocery store.
According to an ipiit press release, “users select from a list of common food allergens, preservatives and additives like almonds, egg, gluten, lactose, milk protein, celery, wheat, artificial color and sweetener and azodicarbonamide/ADA. Profiles can also be tailored to be non-GMO, MSG free and corn syrup/high fructose corn syrup free. Once preferences are set, that is it, the app is ready to scan and make food recommendations. Currently, ipiit has 15 food preferences to select from and over 300,000 products loaded into its database with more constantly being added.”
When users scan the barcode of a product, they will be told whether or not it should be consumed based on your preference. If it does not fit with your settings, ipiit will suggest other items. ipiit can also be used to compare products’ nutrition values to determine which is best for you.
ipiit is available for free on Apple and Android devices. For more information and to download the ipiit app, visit: www.ipiit.com.
