Mobile App Checks Ingredients

A new app allows consumers to scan product barcodes and determine whether items contain non-veg ingredients.

A new mobile app due to launch at the end of this month will allow users to scan product barcodes and check for animal ingredients or allergens with a single click. The software, titled Inrfood, contains a database of more than 200,000 products and 40,000 ingredients, uses a color code that enables shoppers to easily identify items that are not suitable for vegans and vegetarians, diabetics, people with allergies, pregnant women, or those with heart conditions. Aided by a team of 25 dietitians, nutritionists, and researchers, the app also gauges the healthfulness of foods by categorizing ingredients as safe to eat (green), better in moderation (yellow), or best avoided (red). Inrfood will also have a web interface for checking products at home.
