FoodCheck – Traffic Light Nutrition Labelling Guide
FoodCheck is an app designed to help you buy healthier products at your local supermarket. It’s not one of those “eat only low-fat” or “count your calories” apps, it’s more of a guidebook which tells you whether a product is really as healthy as the packaging claims.
We recognized that many people want to buy their favorite products, but very often don’t know how much sugar, salt or fat is really “hidden” inside. Once you know, you may not want to stop buying or eating such a product, but you may want to think about how much and how often you consume it.
Traffic light labels are a great way to signal that a product contains lots of fats, sugar or salt by putting a red sticker on those nutrients. If it’s less, the sticker turns yellow and if it is part of the healthiest category it’s a green badge. So if you only want the healthiest choices, look for more greens than red. If you like the product despite red labels, consider eating less for a healthier lifestyle.
We provide hundreds of popular products once you download the app and keep adding more in the coming weeks. If you don’t want to wait for our updates, you can simply enter your own products and check them! It’s completely up to you.
Additionally, we’ve added a nice feature called daily amount which tells you how much fat, sugar, salt or calories are contained in any product amount you enter – just turn your device into landscape mode and explore. If you’re interested in a step-by-step explanation, see our user guide.
Start comparing your favorite products and live healthier by simply buying better alternatives. It has never been easier or quicker to do so – simply download FoodCheck from the App Store today!
