n Food Facts is a health app with an enormous database containing important information on various food products. It's a collaborative project, so the information is provided by a large community of volunteers (which can also include you, of course).
The way Open Food Facts works is simple: with the app's barcode reader, you can scan any food product package. From there, the app shows you nutritional information for that product: its additives, allergens, and more. It also includes an analysis of the nutritional quality of each product by ranking it from A to E, with A being the least processed and E the most processed. Open Food Facts even lets you compare similar foods to see which has fewer additives, less sugar, or better nutritional value overall.
If you scan a product and it's not already in the database, you can fill out a short questionnaire on the product to add it to the app.
Thanks to Open Food Facts, you can check detailed nutritional information on any food product you buy, making better choices and eating healthier. It's also a great app for anyone who suffers from allergies or intolerances, since you can add alerts to let you know when a product contains an ingredient you should avoid.
Open Food Facts is an amazing and useful app that's easy to use, helping you make better choices at the grocery store for a better and healthier you.
