Learn to Select, Store and Cook Hundreds of Fruits and Vegetables Before You Buy

Do you know how to pick the best cantaloupe, prepare an artichoke, or properly store garlic before you use it? When you're trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, it can be difficult to know how to chose, store, and cook with all the different varieties you see. That's why SparkPeople created the Perfect Produce, a premium iPhone application.

Perfect Produce provides:

  • Tips to select, store, and prepare more than 100 different fruits and vegetables found in most supermarkets
  • Calorie and nutritional information for each fruit or vegetable
  • The ability to search for foods that are high in fiber, calcium, vitamin C, and other nutrients
  • Thousands of healthy recipes featuring the fruits and vegetables as a main ingredient. Find dozens of recipes for any ingredient while you shop!


You can download this premium application from iTunes for $1.99. Note that we plan to keep our other SparkPeople applications (Diet & Fitness Tracker and Healthy Recipes) completely free of charge.

Learn more and download from iTunes now!

We hope you'll use our newest Perfect Produce app to make healthy eating and cooking even easier!

    Sounds great... unfortunately I don't have an iPhone, so I'll stick to the computer.

    I have a droid. Will this work on a android?
I have the basic sparkpeople app for it, but am disappointed I can't spin or look at favorites in my food tracker.

    Excellent!

I see it is listed as supporting the iPad. However there are apps and then there are apps. The best are truly cross platform which means on the iPad it will behave as a normal iPad app. Others are not and will it merely launch as the itty bitty iPhone app. Could you please clarify which it is?

Thanks,
Catherine

    While sitting in the waiting room this morning, I decided to check out sparkpeople apps and noticed this one! I'm leary of purchasing apps without a review, not realizing until now it was launched today! Ok - I bit the bullet and purchased it.

Pretty neat! I will use it.

The apple icon is a bit deceiving - I think it should have the sparkpeople logo incorporated some how.

Love the info. Truly a confidence booster in the produce section.

I would recommend.
***** 5 Stars!

    Will this be offered or is it already offered on the site because I do not use my phone like this and I do not have apps. I do not need all of that, I just need the phone to ring and I answer it and that is only in an emergency! Sad, but that is just me. emoticon emoticon

  This is fantastic - I cook with veggies a lot, but this is a great application for expanding my palate, my repetoire, and keeping an eye on what vitamins and minerals each veg brings to my family's diet. Thank you.

    I think it is wonderful how you continue to make the Spark more accessible and user friendly. Personally, I am on a fixed income and cannot afford all of the technology available. However, having such an extensive resoursce available simply from my computer is awesome. emoticon
