Foods can be surprisingly high in salt, fat, saturated fats (saturates) and sugars, but many people struggle to understand nutrition labels on food packaging. FoodSwitch is a revolutionary, award-winning, free smartphone app that helps you make healthier food choices.
Consensus Action on Salt & Health (CASH) in collaboration The George Institute of Global Health (TGI) and other leading UK nutrition experts have brought to you a free and simple to use app for smartphones to help you find out what’s in the food you’re eating, so you can make simple switches to healthier options.
FoodSwitch UK allows you to scan the barcode of food and drink products and instantly see whether they are high (red), medium (amber) or low (green) in fat, saturates, sugars and salt.
It also searches the database for similar but healthier alternative products, making it easier than ever to switch to healthier food choices.
The app includes five different filters to choose from, so whether you are looking to lower your blood pressure, reduce your saturated fat (saturates) and sugar intake, or cut back on your calories, FoodSwitch UK can help.
Use FoodSwitch to see what’s in your shopping basket, and make better food choices when shopping for you and your family. FoodSwitch is available as a free, UK-only download from iTunes and Google Play.
