"You can eat better"

A comprehensive nutrition app to get into healthier habits

THE VERDICT

Fast food can be as addictive as many drugs and equally detrimental for your health. However, it's so easy and fast to get it, isn't it? Sometimes it's not the times or the accessibility but the ignorance of which are the alternatives. Fooducate is a comprehensive nutrition app that will help you get into healthier habits. It allows you to scan barcodes and get detailed information about food products: ingredients, nutrients, calories and overall rating based on all those parameters. In addition, it will show alternative (and healthier) products to the one you are looking at, check real-time info about products fed by the community and track your own weight loss progress.

THE PROS

Fooducate is set in a simple yet beautiful and intuitive interface. The app is made up by four sections - food finder, health tracker, community and daily tip - that go through all the phases of getting into a healthier life: changing habits, tracking progress, getting motivation by peers and expert advice on how to improve in each iteration. Finally, the level of detail about food ingredients and nutrients and the way it is displayed (the good, the harmful...) is outstanding.

THE CONS

It isn't available in certain countries. Needs better language support. It doesn't support popular fitness trackers (wearables).

    I really like this app especially because I'm trying the vegan diet out and this app helps me avoid animal byproducts that I don't know of. My only complaint is that some food/drink profiles have duplicates so I'm not sure if it was added either by Fooducate or another user. Also whenever I try to add a food the app freezes. I'm using "my fitness pal" until the bug is fixed. I just have to say th

    This is a much healthier way to record your diet, without obsessing over calories. It's not as easy to add homemade foods, like sourdough bread or even a salad without adding every ingredient individually, but it definitely comes in handy with packaged foods. I like it enough that I'm considering spending the yearly $15 to upgrade and be able to do more complex nutrient tracking.
