Fooducate Yourself - Smart Phone App Brings Nutrition Info To Your Pocket

Last fall we came across Fooducate, an iOS and Android app that gives you a sneaky peek inside packaged food ingredients, and were impressed. Then in December, Apple chose Fooducate as the best app in the Health & Fitness category in their App Store Rewind 2011 year end retrospective.

Fooducate is dead simple and a great way to get better informed about what you're eating. Just use the camera on your phone or tablet to scan the UPC code of just about any packaged food and Fooducate will come back with information the manufacturer may not have been very transparent about, along with recommendations for healthier alternatives.

Just a few days ago, they launched a companion website that lets you enter UPC codes manually for the same information, so you don't need a smart phone to eat smart!
