A friend recently emailed me and asked if I had heard of the Foodswitch App? I hadn’t, so I quickly got googling and found out what it was all about.
The George Institute of Global Health has released an app that allows you to compare the nutritional value of over 20,000 processed foods – Such as jams, tomato sauces and cereals. All you have to do is scan the bar code on the product, and the app colour codes the total fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt into red, amber and green; helping you make healthy food choices when you are on the go!
