The Gluten Free Scanner

The Gluten Free Scanner


Having allergy to gluten is frustrating enough. The Gluten Free Scanner works simply and fast, using your mobile phone camera to scan the barcodes already found on the products you buy.

We use the largest database of food and drink products available in the US, to detect the presence of gluten. This database includes over 700,000+ products and growing. A team of dietitians, nutritionists and researchers take care of the accuracy of this information.

Every scan will be analyzed on three levels, to provide greater information and protection:

- The product is gluten free.
- The product can contain gluten. The app shows the list of ingredients (allergens).
- The product is not gluten free. The app shows the list of ingredients.

This enables you to make a more informed decision as to whether or not to try the product.

We have plans for new features in the future and always welcome your suggestions.

Note:

The Gluten Free Scanner only works in the US and should be used a as a guide only, is not intended as medical advice ( http://scanglutenfree.com/eula ).

Was ok, until trial ended I have used this for awhile, and even though half the items I scanned weren't there, I liked it. But now uninstalling because the trial period I was never told about has ended and I'm expected to pay $10 for a crappy app

Saving My Life, Literally! I cannot believe this app has such a low rank. It saves me time in looking up ingredients. I shop more confident knowing not all products that claim to be glutton free are actually glutton free! Thanks to this app, those products are exposed and I don't get seriously ill. I can live without fear of consuming glutton unknowingly. Bless you for this. My husband and family thank you as I'm able to go to family functions, barbeque, etc. I'm very happy! It takes time to add various food items. Patience. ;-)

It's ok... It doesn't have many things in its database so it's not to much help. I need something that has a lot more food in its database so I know what I am eating

Eh Not very useful. I think it might be in the future, but the database is so small. And nearly all of the items I scanned said" may contain" and that is simply not helpful information.

Works good but needs a bigger database I read a lot of the comments about this app. Something you might find helpful about items that say gluten free on the package but say may contain gluten on the app. Gluten free is not always gluten free. The fda states labeling a pkg as gluten free has to meet a requirement of 20 per million, meaning there is still trace amounts of gluten in the product. Look for it to say certified gluten free on the pkg, which has no trace amounts of gluten. Hope this was helpful to everyone.
