What is the problem? 

A lot of food & non-food products contain ingredients or additives that are unknown to us as consumers or are hard to recognize. It gets time-consuming to read every label.

What needs to be done?


Have a user-friendly app that makes this process effortless and more accurate.




Why is this tool important? 

People choose to stay away from certain products that are not in line with their chosen lifestyles or medical limitations. Staying committed to these choices aids in improving life quality.





Who is the primary target? 

1- Those with food allergies, food intolerance, or medical conditions.

2- Individuals with certain life choices who deal with dietary and consumption restrictions (eg. food products, medicinal supplements, and cosmetics).

3- Those responsible for shopping and cooking for people with dietary limitations/ restrictions on a daily basis (in households, foster homes, daycares, etc).

4- Those hosting and planning large gatherings occasionally or professionally. 



How can this work?

Scan the barcodes. 

The data that is inserted in the app will be aligned against the restriction categories created by the user. Users will then be told of those restricted ingredients present in the product.

Starting with her salad dressing and not wanting egg in it and so on with avoiding Oxybenzone in her sunscreens; there are just a lot of items to avoid that she does not know about.
