If you're concerned about your nutrition, you'll surely be interested in downloading the Open Food Facts app for Android. Thanks to the latter, you can view the nutritional info of thousands of food products an drinks that can be found in stores and supermarkets.
Check the nutritional values of any food
Downloading the APK will grant you access to an open database with thousands of food products and on which hundreds of thousands of users from all over the world collaborate. It's a non-profit project to which anyone can contribute by adding products through their barcodes, including different data such as their origin or nutritional values.
The app gathers information from all over the world (UK, Germany, France, Spain...) and about food that we can find in any local store or supermarket. We can search manually or scan the barcode to find information such as:
- Explanations about the small print of the products you buy, including alcoholic beverages.
- Discover the carbon footprint (CO2 emissions) entailed by the production and packaging information.
- Nutritional values (nutrients, fats, carbohydrates, calories, fiber, proteins, salt...).
- Find out what kinds of allergens it contains and for which diets it's suitable (bio, gluten-free, halal, vegetarian, kosher...).
The app works offline and allows you to add your own food. Therefore, if you want to collaborate by adding contents that aren't in the database and help other users, go straight ahead.
