Created by a registered dietitian, Gluten Free Shopping Scanner draws the largest database on the market—over 650,000 products.
Using the app is easy. You simply scan a barcode and look for the green thumbs-up (Contains No Gluten) or the red thumbs-down (Contains Gluten).
"I've been eating a gluten-free diet for nine years," said the app's creator and dietitian, Lacy Wright. "And I just wanted to find a way to share my knowledge with other people who are sensitive to food allergens. Hopefully, the app will save people a lot of time in the grocery store!"
This app has a variety of other features to help gluten-free shoppers. You can type in keywords manually to search for products or browse by category. A comprehensive food ingredient list shows the "gluten status" of each, as well as links to available Wikipedia articles. Users can upgrade the app to access information related to casein, a milk protein. Parents of autistic children will find this extra info very helpful.
Whether for you have intense gluten intolerance or simply choose to eat a gluten free diet, this app works well and looks even better. Unlike other apps on the market, you do not have to pay a subscription fee. Download it now for $3.99: http://itunes.apple.com/
