APP REVIEW: Fooducate


Through scanned product barcodes, this app helps users interpret food labels and notes various health aspects of the food so consumers can choose healthier alternatives.

While the website is great, the app is largely based on people’s opinions, not on advice from experts. Although billed as “like having a dietitian on speed dial,” an RD offers so much more than just defining food ingredients.
