Introducing a new nutritional app that you’ll want to have with you every time you pop out to go buy some groceries. Fooducate offers UPC spanning and a database of over 200,000 items (and growing) to not only give you a full nutritional rundown of the items you’ve bought, or plan to purchase, but healthier alternatives too.

Fooducate plans to help educate the public by making learning and understanding nutritional information about the food products you buy easier and more interactive. Instead of having to read the nutritional data and ingredients for every single item you wish to purchase, you can simply can the UPC into Fooducate and get an overall health score for that particular item.

Fooducate takes all the nutritional information available about each product and provides you with an overall score. It will also give you any particular warnings and important information about the products themselves, in additional to the Food Points value for dieters.
