PRLog - Jan. 21, 2013 - KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Gluten Free Shopping Scanner is a must-have for anyone looking for gluten-free foods. Compatible with iOS devices, the app lets shoppers scan barcodes at the grocery store to see whether or not each product contains gluten.
Gluten Free Shopping Scanner
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/
