Protein App for Vegans

A new iPhone app launched that helps people track their protein intake.

Recently, iProtein launched—a new iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad app that lets users know the amount of protein in different foods. The app targets vegetarians and vegans, as well as bodybuilders, all of whom can be concerned with the amount of protein they are receiving. IProtein rates foods from extremely low to extremely high protein content with a color-coding system, and includes an information page that describes vegan diets and protein, providing pointers for healthy, balanced eating for vegans. The application is from the creators of the Vitamin K app and the Carbs app, and is on sale for $1.99.
