Food labels are such a mess the government is redesigning them. Ingredient lists are so confusing you need a doctorate in food science to decipher them. A shopper could spend hours in a grocery store squinting at, calculating, comparing and contrasting, and still not get it right. “ShopWell” is trying to help by allowing consumers to scan food labels and receive comprehensible, personalized information.
Here’s how it works. Register for “ShopWell”, and note your age and gender. Add your goals (General health? Or are you fighting osteoporosis? Do you have diabetes?). Then, note what you want in your diet, such as protein or iron, and what you want to minimize (added sugar, say). Add your allergies and intolerances, and start scanning.
