I'm intrigued as to how it teaches you about ingredients you didn't know about if it covers packaged foods. Don't packaged foods in the USA have to have all the ingredients listed on the box? If they do, then you should know exactly what is in your food.
Simple advice for breakfast cereals - don't buy one with any added sugar!
I love fooducate. It really helps make good choices and tells you about suspicious ingredients that you never even knew about! I like how it has an 'alternatives' button which helps you find a better choice than the one you were going to make.

I found Special K was alright and the only reason you're going to loose weight with that is because You're replacing two meals a day with a bowl of cereal! Pfft. Theirs no fun in that!
I also eat raisin Bran :) I use .66 of a cup I'm guessing cereals in the "A" cat is probably All bran cereals with no fruits of any kind

I heard about this app on I think the Dr. Oz show? I love it!
I was out of cereal and started scanning in the grocery store isle, yes plenty of strange looks but oh well. I've seen worse at Wal-Mart! lol I thought Special K was healthy and promoted for weight loss... Fooducte gave it a C- . I switched to a B+ cereal, less calories per serving of the same size...Raisin Bran (Great Value brand) was my choice!
Looking forward to making more healthy choices using this app!
