I was just told about a cool new app for the iPhone. It is called “Allergy Talk” by Fooducate. From what I can tell, it allows you to instantly tell which food items contain the following allergens: gluten, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish, egg, milk and soy. (You can turn the allergen alert on and off to meet your specific needs.) I think the information comes from scanning the bar code. You can also discuss the allergens (I’m assuming with other users of the app?). If this is as good as it says it is, reading labels may be a thing from the past!
