Here’s an app we have to have: the new (free!) GS1 GoScan. It’s been three years in the making, and for good reason – it’s the first of its kind in Australia to be endorsed by the whole food industry – and with just the swipe of a barcode, it can tell you if a product suits your special dietary needs.
Developed in conjunction with more than 70 brands, the app helps you choose the foods that are right for you and your family. You can even personalise the settings to receive an alert based on your specific allergens or requirements, so it makes managing allergies, intolerances and special dietary needs (like vegan, organic, halal or kosher) easier.
It’s also a great idea for anyone interested in knowing more about the nutritional value of a food, in addition to what’s on the label. And if you aren’t at the shops, you can still use the app to browse by product description, brand or category for instant product information that supports informed food choices.
Download it for free at the App Store in Australia and New Zealand, and visit www.goscan.com.au for more information.
