Thanks to Mello Apps Limited, vegetarians can use their iPhone to determine if the ingredients listed on food labels are veggie-friendly.

After taking a picture with the iPhone 3GS, the innovative Vegetarian Scanner app will use the Scan feature to cross-reference the ingredients against a database of additives—immediately detecting if the additives are animal-free.

For those lacking the 3GS camera, such as iPod Touch, iPhone 2G or 3G, or iPad users, you’re not out of luck. A Search & Browse function on the Vegetarian Scanner allows users to peruse through a database of food additives.

Vegetarian Scanner 1.0 sells for $1.99 and is available exclusively in the Health & Fitness category of the App Store.

[UPDATE: We found this disclaimer regarding the app that might make it less than useful for US buyers. “Vegetarian Scanner will only scan food additives with E-numbers available in our database. E-numbers are found mostly on labels within the European Union, Australia and New Zealand. For countries outside the European Union, Vegetarian Scanner will only scan imported European products.”]
