Get to Know: Fooducate

Fooducate is an application that scans the barcode of various grocery items and then tells you the nutritional value and other facts regarding the item. The website claims that there are over 200,000 unique product searches, and you can add additional ones if you come across something not in the database. The application is easy to use, and oftentimes insightful. Perhaps not for those on the grab-and-go, but for those motivated enough to change their diet, this little app can certainly help with making better food choices.

The website is very easy to use and search for products, as seen below:

 

The application is just as user friendly, with a bar code scanner for searching products on the go. Scanned items automatically go on the history tab and you can easily put items on a shopping list.
