Fooducate App

I found a very cool app for my iphone the other day. It called Fooducate.

I was scanning all kinds of products in my kitchen yesterday. The first thing I grabbed was a carton of Swanson's 100% natural chicken broth.

A photo of the item comes up along with a grade- C+ for the broth, then calories per serving.
Below that there is a red mark alerting me to the fact that this broth is salty and has 35% of the daily max. That is per serving which is 1 cup!!

Later I scanned my tortillas and it warned me that what I was eating had over 35 ingredients in it!!

Overall I think this will be a good tool for me and be a reminder to check my labels!!. If you try it, let me know what you think.
