Iphone Food Scanner replaces food journal?

By | October 4, 2009

I wonder who really takes the time to carry a notepad and logs everything that goes into the mouth. Anyone?

The Iphone FoodScanner is one of the coolest application that is set to replace food journal. It simplifies the tracking of your daily calorie intake without pen and paper.

Here are some of the features of the iPhone FoodScanner:
1. It uses the iPhone’s camera to scan UPC barcodes on the foods you consume.
2. You can see complete nutrition labels (protein, carbs, fat, calories, etc).
3. It relies on an expanding nutrition database of 200K foods.

The only downside to the iPhone FoodScanner is that it cannot scan foods without barcode such as fruits and vegetables. You need to type the food item in manually.

For those who intend to use this app, you’ll most likely be shocked to know the total calories you consume in a day. Most of us tend to under estimate our calorie intake.
