Most of us vegans will tell you we get pretty fast at scanning through food labels looking for animal ingredients. Soon, we may have some help though.
A new mobile app, Inrfood, will scan barcodes and tell you if there are any animal ingredients in the product! According to VegNews, the app that will launch at the end of this month will also identify foods with allergens, foods not safe for pregnant women, and individuals with heart conditions or diabetes using a color code – green means safe to eat, yellow means better in moderation, and red indicates food to be avoided.
VegNews reports that Inrfood will use a database of over 200,000 products and 40,000 ingredients, and information from experts including researchers, dietitians and nutritionists. And if you’re not at the store? You’ll be able to use the app to check products on the web.
