foodwise is the mobile app that wants to liberate you from reading food ingredient labels and nutrition facts. Enter whatever foods you're avoiding, like gluten, added sugar, or artificial additives, scan the barcode of a food, and foodwise will tell you if that food contains anything you're trying to avoid.

We're starting with the ability to detect allergens and additives you want to avoid, but our mission is to bring whatever you need to know about your food right to your smart phone. Our mission is to empower you to eat wisely.
