razrsaurus - Great app, only tiny improvements needed
Great app. Everything you wish your home spreadsheet did with pretty colors and 10,000x less effort. Makes it easy to track food quantities. Some people have complained that it doesn’t show summary totals in grams, just percentages—but you can just go to the apple health app to see that over time, which is really great. I wouldn’t change the interface on this app. Wish the health app could also display the DV you set in this app for comparison on those charts.
A couple of extra nutrients like omega 3s, maybe biotin, would be great. Splitting hairs but I’d love to see folate breakdown for fortified folic acid foods and natural food folate.
Also, I don’t see a way to retroactively add a journal entry. You can move entries from the current day to a previous day that you did at least one entry for, but if you didn’t do any entries yesterday there’s no way to do it retroactively. That would be a helpful feature for those days that get away from you...in the meantime, I guess I just have to stay on top of things!
mnh16 - A few problems
I didn’t see a tutorial, which I could really use. I find it frustrating that when I want to create a recipe, there are often only brand name versions of ingredients that should just be raw. Since I am not sure what the brands represent nutritionally, this seems odd. I made a sweet potato soup for instance. When I tried to indicate that the recipe calls for 1.25lbs of sweet potatoes, I could not. Instead, there were many brands of sweet potatoes listed and none were available to input in quantities greater than 200 grams (pounds were not an option). I had to calculate grams to pounds and then input several different brands of sweet potatoes at 200-grams each. I had no idea if these were all plain, raw sweet potatoes. This seems really weird.
Also, as a vegetarian, I am concerned about niacin intake. I purchased nutritional yeast powder (unfortified). No such thing exists in the database.
In general, I want plain foods, not brands, and in standardized measurements. Some foods are available in tbs. some in grams. Some only in ounces. It’s all over the map.
0161019 - Simple and Accurate
Some time after using this app, I've realized it frequently miscalculated percentages of nutrients. The app is basically useless if it tells me I'm getting 0% of a vitamin when I'm actually getting 50%.
This app is very impressive and has a great, intuitive, user friendly platform. The food items are quite generic and there are some missing (like bok choy), which is a bummer, but the data seems accurate which is important for me (I see that it comes from the USDA). It competes with MyFitnessPal. However, it would be GREAT if it broke down protein, fat, and carb percentages per day. And it would be nice if it included omega-3 which is critical. Lastly, I'd like to be able to go back and change food items for a previous date. I want to reiterate that the food items are very generic so MyFitnessPal has a leg up because of that--however, I prefer quality of accuracy over quantity of items. Anyway, thanks a lot for a great and useful app!
I'm updating this review to say that I've noticed that sometimes the nutrients don't add up properly, which is very frustrating. Sometimes I add a food and the values become lower. Especially with vitamin B5. It's important for me because I'm fighting allergies. Could you please fix that? Thanks again!
Julia98-16 - Very Detailed!
I really like this app for the most part. I wanted to track my nutrition, but most apps are based solely around calories and weight loss... not good for someone recovering from an eating disorder.
This app is so great for me because it focuses on nutrition, and it makes you want to fill the bars up. It doesn’t tell you how many calories you’ve eaten, just gives you a percentage and bar to fill (exactly what I needed). The nutritional values are so detailed, too.
My only problem with the app is that it doesn’t recognise a lot of bar codes, which can be annoying. However, I assume they’re always working towards adding more, so it doesn’t bother me tremendously.
Overall, I do recommend this app! The nutritional details are impressive.
the great dog lover - Missing “added sugars”
I am a registered dietitian and I have my MS in Nutrition. I teach an online nutrition class for a community college and have been searching for an app that is inexpensive, user friendly and not bias towards weight loss, that I could recommend to students.
Initially this app seemed perfect, I like that you can calculate your own nutrient needs and manipulate the profile. I like that it syncs with iOS health, which I use. However, after several days of use I’m really frustrated by the way it tracks sugars. It tracks all sugars (including naturally occurring sugars from fruit or milk) not just added sugars, which is what I want to know. I had eggs, two pieces of fruit, a kale salad, and a small piece of lasagna yesterday. While I was on target with calories, fat, protein and carbs.... my sugar category was really high, despite the fact that I had nothing with any added sweetener. This really needs to be fixed!
Mljohnson1123 - Eh..
This app came soooo recommended that I pondered for a long time about buying it since it’s 4.99!!! I don’t normally just randomly pay for expensive apps. Yes the library is very extensive. However after journaling all my foods, all the nutrient information is smashed and you can’t see it. I am not sure if I’m missing a feature in the settings that I need to turn off or on. I have no idea but for that reason I am not impressed. I seriously think I just wasted 4.99. I would like a refund. I send a feedback to the company hoping they might fix it or tell me what I’m doing wrong but I haven’t heard back yet. I am not pleased!
Maricat823 - Good Idea, Poor execution
There are a lot of requests to see the grams rather than % on journal. Keep color bar to determine percentage, and replace # with mg.
I filled out the RDA for the AA in my profile, but it doesn’t show on the journal.
Allow a user to enter their weight + daily calorie intake and calculate RDA, allowing for adjustments by the user.
When entering my protein/carb/fat daily requirements, it should show the calorie calculation at the top. It’s simple math, but I had to go to another app to do this.
The layout is awkward, but works well enough. Hire a UI team.
Add instructions. I didn’t know how to enter MY needs, calories. Also had to look up RDA on another app for my weight and age. AA have zero for default. Why?
I don’t care about any of the other features so I haven’t used them nor plan to. Copy meals from another date is useful, since people tend to eat the same things over a week.
Keep it up. It seems almost meeting the need MFP is lacking. But their UI and functionality is better. If they added minerals Vitamins and AA today, Id switch back due to the ease of use. Beat them to it, please. And I’ll stay loyal and pay for updates.
88Rene - Best App to manage your health
If you need to manage a health condition, no matter which one, then this is the app to go. Smart aging to stay fit ? Again this app.
Most diseases are traced back to poor diet and its mind boggling after using the app you will skip 75% of all isle in the super market and the fresh produce section will be your favorite
The graphic showing the daily vitamin intake vs ideal target could be better. Data should synchronize across devices and it would be good to get weekly and monthly statistics that one can identify vitamin or mineral deficits faster. This said the app still is miles better than 8 other apps I tested
MindyMart33 - No copy and paste feature!!
Just downloaded this app today, to help me track sodium, iron, and potassium. I am surprised that nobody complains that all recipes have to be entered the long way!! I would much rather have a quick copy and paste option, after finding a recipe I like from a website.
Update: I also would appreciate it, if they’d make it easier to swap ingredients. The process of deleting what I don’t want, searching for the replacement ingredient, and then adding that in, is tedious. Sometimes, the amounts I need are not listed, either. Then I have to go with the closest amount that is listed, which throws off the nutrition facts. (Ex: 5 TBSP butter in a recipe, but my only options in the app are 4 TBSP, or 1/3 cup. Neither is exactly correct.)
dduukkiiee - Wish it were more accurate
Either the nutrient listing on the back of the bag of Brad’s Crunchy Kale is way off, or your nutrient listing is way off. Whereas the Brad’s package says that there is 30% daily value of Vitamin A in 2 ounces of their product, the App says that there is over 2000% daily value of Vitamin A in 2 ounces of their product. I’ve noticed some other discrepancies as well, which tend to lower my level of trust in the App. I don’t regret buying the App, as it has helped me see where I am lacking in my diet, and it’s fun to see the bars on the chart increase when I add a certain food to address that issue. I just wish I could trust it more and don’t have to keep second guessing it.
Super annoyed subscriber 10001 - Not for home cooks
As a home cook, I'm disappointed in this app. Its food journal feature will let you choose between any number of commercially available, processed foods (i.e. Digiorno's pizza), but won't let you select basic ingredients that go into a home cooked recipe (i.e. pizza dough). I'm confused about this because presumably people who want to keep track of their nutrition are not the top consumers of processed foods like Digiorno's pizza? Also, the app seems really unscientific to me because it tells me how much of my recommended protein intake I've achieved per day without having ever asked me about my weight. My understanding is that your recommended daily value of protein is directly tied to how much you weigh so this feels sketchy to me. Would not recommend.
nathanwiens - Works, but pretty buggy
I love the concept of this app, however I’ve seen numerous instances where a recipe I’ve added has a total calorie count, then the calories from fat are massively larger number than the total cals. E.G. pasta dish that’s 459 total kcals but from fat it’s over 1,000 kcals. Curious if it’s calculating the fat kcals from the whole dish and not dividing by servings as is the other nutrition metrics.
Also, editing a recipe and attempting to select an icon and the app hangs for a few seconds and doesn’t select the icon. Is it worth the $5 I spent? Not in its current state—I think there needs to be some more QA and ingredient database improvements (no pure maple syrup, let alone organic?). Hoping for an update soon!
Lhomey - Big disappointment
I was so hopeful when I found this app! I wanted to input my own recipes and see a breakdown of nutrition per serving, which it does have the capacity to do. However... 1) the ingredient library is VERY limited, forcing me to input brands I didn’t use and just “hope” the nutritional value was similar to the brand I did use; 2) the only measurements option is metric (no option to measure in imperial measurements and, unfortunately, I don’t know the conversions off the top of my head, so I need an additional conversion app to use this app!); and 3) its not very intuitive in its setup and menu options. I wish there were a way to return an app... I just wasted $5 on this and I’ll never use it!
buzzer0913 - Best App For Tracking Nutrition IMO
I have tried multiple other apps for tracking calories and this one is my favorite, hands down. The very simple search interface allows you to find the ENTIRE nutritional profile of an exact portion of food including total calories, total protein, fat, carbs, vitamins, and minerals. On top of that, you can add individual food items or even ENTIRE CUSTOM RECIPES to "your journal" which then keeps track of how much you have eaten for the day. Very happy I purchased this.
scourge2bunnies - Bug Needs Fixing
So far this is a very good app, but I’ve come across a few bugs that need fixing. First bug: I tried to add a new item to my pantry, and it overwrote another item I had in the pantry. I ended up with 2 versions of the new item and the other item disappeared. Second bug: I was adding a new item to my pantry, and the nutrition values were being stored in the wrong places. The item had 300 mg of sodium. I entered the Sodium, but the app displayed it as 300 g of sugar. I entered the amount of sugar, and it wasn’t displayed at all. Since I’m diabetic, this bug really concerns me. Can you please fix it?
4ZTYM - Best App Available!
I am so appreciative and grateful for you to give this app away for free. I am diabetic and need it so much and it has helped me to figure out the nutritional breakdown in my recipes. I have been having problems with kidney function and need to limit potassium and your app allows me to see exactly what I have in my recipes so I can add or eliminate certain ingredients.
Words cannot say enough as how grateful I am to you and the fact that you do not even charge anything!
TiffanyGrace87 - Great idea! Horrible execution!
If this app had more food options this would be my favorite app. I love that it breaks down all of the nutrition within food and not just macros and carbs, fat and protein. I wanted a more intense look at the food I was eating and the nutritional value.
I like that this shows you the nutritional value between an apple and a piece of chocolate. All of the Keto like apps will categorize fruit and sugary crap as just a carb with no nutritional difference. This app is great in that aspect.
HOWEVER and this is a YUGE HOWEVER...this app does not have any food that I eat. No protein powder, no bumble bee tuna, no Halo Top... NOTHING. I purchased this and it is completely useless to me. Waste of $5. *Ugh*
thankful1000 - Great App, Pantry has glitches
Great app for tracking your total nutrition picture. Easy to enter. Perfect for I what- to make sure I am getting a sufficient amount of micro nutrients.
Some people are complaining about their full day only showing in percentages. Just select it, it then shows it in the next pain with weights.
The entry fields for the Pantry are not correctly linked. To enter grams of protein, I had to enter it as saturated fat. All of the fields are wrong. Thank you in advance for fixing this!
Saussha - Would rate it a 5 but...
Offers the very best tracking of all nutrients in food. Other so are mostly concerned with calorie breakdown. If you are like me, you are trying to see a bit more than that and you need to know about iron, calcium, minerals, etc...this is the app for you. I’d give it a 5 for sure but it badly needs an update to allow the barcode scanner to work better. All the times I have tried to scan, it’s only worked a couple times. This ability to enter food and supplements is really important. Please fix!! :)
veggieeater97 - Works sometimes.
The app glitches a lot. You can’t add your own custom foods, you can’t make recipes with the foods that are already listed on the app. When journaling sometimes it’ll get stuck and put the wrong nutrient info no matter what portion you’re journaling it may say something like 4000 calories for .5 cup of beans. I normally don’t write reviews but paying for this app, and not having it work the way it was designed to is frustrating. It’s not completely bad, but there are a lot of limitations I’d like to see fixed.
.::D-JayDizzle::. - Not worth the time
When I saw the barcode scanner, I was pumped because I thought it would be something I could scan in my supplements, pre-packaged foods, etc. You can’t. Their database support for this app must be extremely limited, because I have yet to find something I can scan in! Then, to try and stay on track, you spend hours (if you’re me) looking for ingredient equivalents on their app, which only gives you a roundabout estimation of your consumption at best! Finally, since I paid for the app, I waited to see if they would upload more stuff to their database. It doesn’t appear that they have. Overall: 1/5, do NOT recommend.
heatherMSRD - If you fix this, it would be great!
I’m a dietitian and I enjoy a lot of things about this app EXCEPT that it gets some nutrient values totally wrong. For example, if you enter a sizable portion of raw sunflower seeds, the vitamin E level doesn’t budge a single percentage point. This is clearly inaccurate, as sunflower seeds are quite high in vitamin E. I’ve seen this happen with some other values around folate and zinc as well. There are some definite gaps in syncing up foods from the list and their corresponding nutrient content. If you fixed this misleading element, it would be nearly perfect!
NeedsAccuracy - Limited foods... no option to add your own food brands
Nice app if you're not concerned with accuracy. The food journal nutrition information doesn't tell you the total quantity (mg, mcg, IU, etc.) of the vitamin or mineral, it only shows a percentage you have consumed. The total vitamins and minerals needed for males and females is different and the app doesn't ask for sex to calculate the correct RDIs.
The app advertises thousands of foods. This is true, but still the selection doesn't include any of my healthy organic and/or gluten free staples. Additionally there isn't an option to add your own food brand's nutrition information into the app so that the displayed nutrition facts are accurate.
Sunil Jaiprashad - Limited
So the app is limited on sizes for items when creating a recipe for example you cannot enter 413g. You either get 350g or 465g(which you have to use a cups because the most grams you can enter is 200g using their options.
It says it has a very large DB of foods. But it does not have Metamucil, certain types of sardines and other items. Mainly because they are limited on the brands that are in their DB.
Also, there is no way to add these items
Support is nonexistent. There are no FAQs or forums to use. You cannot contact them on Twitter ( they do have an account). The “discuss” option takes you to a reddit subreddit that is for another one of their apps.
And you can send emails, but nothing really happens.
Finally, I have tried the Scan barcode feature and nothing can be found. I even manually search for an item and found it and then rescanned the barcode and it told still not found.
jasovi - Helpful Overall But Still Need to Supplement (pardon the pun)
Overall, I like the detailed nutritional data the app provides. It does fall short in some areas. Specifically, the app:
- you can’t add food to the database so you have to find “the next best fit” which means your results are even less accurate
- doesn’t include nutritional data for anything you juice (so all of that info can’t be tracked in this app).
In short, really good app but not THE solution for comprehensively tracking nutrition.
Food Allergy Friendly - Very useful, would like to see more foods in the journal
Great app to track vitamins, minerals, calories, etc especially if you have to avoid certain foods and want to keep a balanced diet. Only recommendation is I would like to see more unusual fresh fruits/vegetables listed like broccolini, bok choy, various sweet potatoes (white varieties like Japanese yam or Hannah yam-they have less vitamin A than the orange varieties). Although for raw arugula they have several “brands” which throws me off?
Kittymyuri - Overall exactly what I was looking for
Just what I was looking for- an easy to read macro tracker. I just wish it were easier to use the other features of it. It would be nice to be able to scan bar codes or to have suggested ingredients to make up for any deficiencies. It would also be nice if it connected to some kind of recipe site and helped with nutrient analysis of the recipients too.
FiFi__1985__SXO - Great App but need help with Pantry
This is a great dietary app with all the details you allow for. I just used the new pantry feature to add a food, I went add a second food, I could not figure out how to do so. I was expecting to see a plus sign that are elsewhere in the app. Also, in a future release would you incorporate “added sugar”.
Thanks for your help and for creating this app!
twigatano - Needs Work
I’m not confident that this a very accurate tracker. It has a wide range of values for example for peeled potatoes. Seems that should be pretty straightforward per gram...
It is also quite glitchy. When adding ingredients to a recipe sometimes you have to put in the same ingredient twice to get the right total amount. But often it will just keep changing the original value. For example, I needed 250 gram potatoes but the max I could select was 200. When I tried to add it again with 50, it deleted the 200 Gram entry.
I did figure out that to change the calories on the profile, you have to adjust total grams of protein, fat and carbs. That makes sense.
It has potential but at this stage is more of a rough guide than an accurate count to depend on.
Gaworder - app I use every meal
This is the best app for nutrients. However, How do I set the number of calories per day? I do not want 2000 which is what it is currently set at.
Also I created a ‘recipe’ called ‘breakfast’ which has the breakfast items I eat everyday. I do not know how to add ‘breakfast’ to my journal. When I go to journal and press the plus sign all I get is search for individual food items.
I use nutrients on an iPad which is at the current iOS level.
I tried to go to help and to the web site but I never could get there or find anywhere to get help. All help does or the website does it put me back to the download page for the app.
Any help on these would be appreciated. I will continue to use nutrients, but it could be made easier.
penh - Not a useful app at all
I wanted to track my nutritional intake to make sure I was getting enough vitamins, and was put-off by how “weight loss” focused other apps were, so I gave this a try. I cook at home, and input my recipes, but was confused to learn I could only use their library of ingredients, which doesn’t have a lot of my products. There’s no way to manually enter a product yourself. Once you manage to piece together a recipe that’s similar to what you make, there’s no way to add it to your daily journal of what you ate that day. A total waste of $5.
rdav31 - Lacking
- nice overview
- relatively simple to use
- only gives percentages for your journal summary and no breakdown of actual grams, etc
- the percentage summaries are based on some random daily amount. Doesn’t allow you to input your intake needs. Ie, If you workout and have higher calorie needs, it still assumes a 2,000 calorie diet.
- to the same point as above, would like to adjust the targets I have to be individualized. Protein, fat, etc
- no ability to breakdown meals. Only daily intake
Just a basic app with a little more nutrient info than some of the others so may suit some people but anyone that actually takes nutrition halfway serious will find this app lacking. Back to trying to use a spreadsheet and out $5. Better than the apps that charge a big monthly fee I guess
ratermayor - App meets realistic expectations
I love this app. I need a general over view of the nutrients I intake. I eat mostly whole foods. This app takes time to get used to and a discerning eye for what you’re actually inputing. I’ve found everything to be functional and fairly accurate. Recipes work really well and cut down on inputing data. Especially the daily intake calculator. Often times I use the app as a database to plan meals. I use a scale at home to measure my food and it makes using this app much easier. Thats actually true of any tracker though.
Wish list *Linolenic acids like Omega-3 (ALA) and Omega-6 (GLA) under amino acids.
*A tutorial or help file that explains how to navigate and use the app
Pernà - Love this app! Want these features...
I love using this app! It is great for helping me to understand nutritional values of foods I eat. I would love these features:
-Ability to integrate with Paprika to add / exchange recipes with that app. I can meal plan in Paprika, send meals (i.e. recipes) to grocery list, but missing nutritional analysis like this.
-Ability to create a meal plan in advance
-Ability to get reports on journal history to look for nutritional issues so I can adjust my diet.
In general I’m looking for a workflow that allows selecting recipes to add to meal plan, evaluate nutritional value, and make adjustments for current or future days.
wcapellan - Can I give it half a star?
This app does not do what it describes it does.
I cannot create my own recipe and calculate the nutritional facts, which is the sole reason why I bought this app. The button is there but it is not functional. When creating a recipe, ingredients are not added. Also, not all ingredients are listed. Shouldn’t it have a search bar so we can add ingredients not listed? But this last point is irrelevant if when adding an ingredient to the recipe, the ingredient never is added to the recipe.
BatmanLex - Waste of Money
There are better trackers available for free. I purchased this app because I didn’t want to pay the expensive subscription fees for other tracker apps to track more nutrients such as fiber intake, etc. The app doesn’t recognize half of my frequently eaten meals and snacks so all of that would have to be manually entered and it’s just not worth my time to do so when there are plenty of apps I can use that do this automatically.
Tyson87132 - Almost Perfect
Needs to be able to rearrange food items, change quantities, change past day items, and prove broader selection of foods. Still not a complete list. Most promising nutrition app though.
Andrew Vegan - Good, but...
So I wasn’t a big fan of FitnessPal and I like the look and feel of this app. The biggest drawback is when you enter in something into the Pantry, it goes out and grabs information that may already be in the database. If I am adding something to my Pantry, I want it to reflect the nutrients that I put into it and not something in the database, that is incorrect.
ABK1319 - Disappointed
I paid $5 for an app that I was only able to use for two days. I have tried to use the app on my iPhone AND my iPad. Both devices software are up to date. I have had it downloaded for over a week and since the second day I’ve had it, it will not even open. I emailed the support email provided last week and no one has responded. Great concept but a complete waste of money and poor customer service.
Dodgeman4700 - Not user friendly
It does not have many brand name items. So I have to use generic items most of the time. The data is not that accurate when used in this manner. The database needs to include brand name items I get from the grocery store. I shop at target for example. No target brand items exist in this database. Also, a barcode scanner option would be nice.
GWGregg - Wasted $4.99
Just downloaded this app today to find it’s very buggy on my iPad. Newly created ingredients don’t add well to recipes. Existing ingredients don’t scale nutrients properly when adding partial or multiple servings. And as of ten minutes ago, the app is now crashing on launch. All other apps are behaving fine, so it’s definitely a problem with this one. Have tried restarting iPad, with no help. Wasted $4.99 and wish I could get a refund.
Srkniery - Lack of Foods
I love what they tried to do here with the building your own meal part, but they went straight for that and somehow managed to miss what every small and less refined app already had. There’s such a tiny catalog of food options almost none of the food I have in my cabinet or drinks from fast food places in my car have a profile on here.
HNR8989 - Vitamins
I wish you could add in specific vitamins you are taking instead of just being able to add food. It would be nice to be able to see if you’re able to hit your vitamin goals.
Reason for four stars - Very useful app, crashes often
Nutrients is a handy app for seeing my overall nutrition, and especially useful in detecting gaps. I just started a vegetarian/pescatarian diet and Nutrients is helping me maintain a healthy balance of vitamins, protein, etc.
But the app crashes at least twice per session. This is tedious, and particularly irritating since Nutrients is a paid app.
ffka - Could be so much better!
Great info but it is missing so much! You can’t add food to past days (if you forget something) and there are hardly any “whole” ingredients. Like dried fruit, nuts, grains. It’s mostly highly processed/packaged foods. Also the barcode scan doesn’t work. There’s no way to change your settings. Very frustrating app. For $5 I expect a lot more!
Melwhi - This is a great app
The only change I would like would be the ability to add foods to the database. I use a number of Trader Joe’s as well as specialty products that aren’t in the DB that I would like to incorporate into recipes.
Ninja McQuade - Excellent
The app tracks all the basic nutrients and is nice for saving recipes. Best I’ve found. I only wish the journal view had an option to click on a day to see amino acid values!!
Stephan.ilberg - Needs improvement
Let’s start with the good.
It’s a great tracking app that gives you all your tracking in an easy to read dashboard.
Now to the shortcomings.
Most of the foods you want to track are not in the library and not recognized when you try to scan the barcode. This means lots of time entering food if you want the right values.
App has tons of bugs, from showing entered sodium values as sugar as well as not recalculating daily values right after deleting wrongly logged entries.
Portion measures not intuitive to enter, no way to change after entering.
Overall I think there are better, easier and more intuitive apps with more features out there.
Ghhfcbhdbjb - Great app!
This app tracks every important nutrient in your diet. It has a huge list of fresh, prepared, and restaurant foods to choose from. I love it. It would be great if they could add vitamin pills to the list too.
jane rose - Crashing
The app crashes repeatedly and will not open after adding custom pantry items. The only way to get it to open again is to uninstall and reinstall the app, which causes you to lose any recipes you've previously entered.

Steven_OZ - Very Informative
I think this app is great, and could be even better with a few tweaks and updates. For example, I cannot see the mineral chromium in the nutrient list. Chromium is a very important mineral in regulating blood sugar levels. Regarding vitamins, I suggest both Vitamin K1 and K2 be shown. Including ORAC scores would also be great. ORAC is becoming mainstream and allows a comparison between foods of their antioxidant potency. ORAC stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity. My final comment would be to add the alphabet vertically beside foods when looking at food groups so you can for example get to "onion" quickly without having to scroll through hundreds of foods. Just press "O" and get taken there quickly. Great app, thanks!
lkijygtd - Refund requested
Review doesn’t let me rate it as 1 star. I am unable to start a new day so only got 1 days tracking for my money. Tech help doesn’t work. Don’t waste your money. All Nicknames needed to register a review are taken for 1, 2 start ratings.
Leelee🌺 - Waste of money! - Do not buy
I recently purchased this app. Every time I try to add an item of food to the journal the app crashes. It's hopeless. I emailed the app developers and received no response. $8.99 spent for nothing! Not happy at all! I do not recommend this app whatsoever.
Hermann 555 - Confusing information
according to Wikipedia a 100g corn kernel provides 86 calories however app Nutrients shows 88k calories... which sounds too much.
random1234567890 - Lots of info, not sure about some aspects
This seems like a very detailed app: it's almost overwhelming looking at the number of foods it lists. It's really frustrating that in order to hide certain categories or nutrients (mainly the former is my concern), you have to pay (which also removes the ads); why not just charge 99c for the app and get on with it? There's also some... unconventional design choices (like making the serving size a button, only putting the search function under one tab, for example). It's also a shame that they couldn't've put some info about foods available in Australia in the app, considering it's available in Australia (and many products that are "American" that we can buy in Australia have different ingredients here). Still, it seems like a solid app, and I hope it can take on some of these queries / suggestions and continue to improve.
SingerBec - Small business owner
I love this app! Easy to see the benefits of each food. Perhaps for the next version 1. Have The option of saving your favourite foods so you don't have to scroll through the complete list each time. 2. Have standard amounts for organic food vs. Non-organic food. 3. Perhaps some recipes? 4. Perhaps some health foods like spelt, Himalayan salt, nut spreads etc. I really do love this app though. Thank you for taking the time to put it together and help me revolutionise my diet!
Meluko7 - Please update.
Just have one really frustrating problem: there needs to be more choices for measurements of the food. For example, no one eats a whole up of walnuts in one go. I'd like to check the nutrients in say.. 20g or 2 tbsp. This would really help and I would probably use the app more and recommend to more of my clients and fellow colleagues.
Lea1234567 - New version is useless
I previously would have given the Foodie app 4-5 stars. It was the only calorie counter I had found that could be easily used and that worked for people outside America. The reason was that it gave the calories for 100g portions. This enabled me to easily calculate the calories for however many grams my portion weighed. Now I can't do that because everything is in cups. I don't go to the shop and buy my food in cups. It comes in packages with the grams marked on the front. How many calories are in a 125g punnet of blueberries? You will never be able to know by using this once great and now redundant app.
Ageofangels - Needs more meat
While I found this app very useful over all I was disappointed with the meat content. I am Australian so things like bison are not much use to me. And the only beef or lamb included is ground. Add more of these and it would have been 5 stars.
Nswayze224 - Mr
The content is all here but I was a little disappointed by the interface. For example, Searching a food by its vitamin content displays the food but you manually have to type in the name again to bookmark it or display its contents .. Over and over again.
Adding integration for recipe apps would make this awesome as well
Birdmousebee - Very informative
This app is great for discovering what your favorite fruits vegetables etc have in them in terms of antioxidants and minerals. It is also visually appealing. Love this app and will definitely keep it! Ps I didn't pay for the extra add-ins, and I still like it.
Kelly Connolly - Awesome app
Love this app. As a budding nutritionist it's great to have all this information in such a simple and easy to use way right at my finger tips. I don't have to go through loads of notes to find what I need. It's right here at a glance.
RickLew - OK but with misleading representations
The app includes a lot of items but it is missing too many - not much about meat and no way to set your own daily requirements based on your diet objectives and weight etc.
I don't like paying for it on the iPd and then finding out that the iPhone version is still locked. Also, I think that if you pay to have it unlocked it is a con to only unlock one section (which is nothing but a sort anyway) leaving other sections still locked.
I think the app is worth a few bucks even if it is only a simple list of readily available info with 2 or 3 sort options, but be up front and charge for it and then unlock the lot.
Leaves me irritated
Rohannaravenswing - Love My Food app
A great resource for anyone interested in health fitness and nutrition. Would like to see a few more 'exotic' foods included such as kangaroo. Also maybe serving size calculator to help plan meals but all in all worth the money!
Tarny308 - Ok
Would of got five stars. But due to the cost of all the in ap purchases it lost stars its a shame coz u really need those other sections unlocked. For $1.99 and 99c I don't think so. When there are about 30 locked sections. Sort of a waste of what could of been an awesome ap. Think someone got greedy designing this one. mmm hmm
jessoosh - A great start
It would be even better with more fruits and veg, particularly the more exotic ones (like dragonfruit, custard apple, starfruit etc) also would be good to include kjs as well as calories.
Also I'd like to see different varieties of mushrooms added.
Jazz-e-boy - Daily use
Use this nearly every day great for working out what's going into the body and why friends and family might be ill from deficiencies...
hbags - Good but has its faults
Nutrient Browser doesn't seem to work... it doesn't list items in priority of content,,, not sure what it uses to list the foods. But the rest is really good!
Anables - Sensational information
This is a perfect application to assist in understanding nutrition and the value of each food type and product.
Oceanic.angel - Excellent!
Great, useful app! Some of the more hightec options like sorting via genre or nutrients cost extra but the content remains the same! Just a good way of supporting a great app!
Sckardel - Good
Good app, but it would be nice if there was a section where you could add your own food or create a meal on it.
andorado - Huge potential
Funtional and visually pleasing. The database needs more accessibility, be nice to search on nutritional factors, for example which foods have the highest iron content or lowest sodium etc. Might happen one day, be worth paying for, I think.
Dave at DFM - Mr
this is an excellent app for teachers of healthnin the upper high school years. All the information at your finger tips. It would also be excellent for dietitians and their clients.
Mermaid Liz - Awesome!!!
It makes finding the most nutrient dense foods so easy. A real must for anyone wanting to get maximum nutrients and minimum calories from their food.
BrandyScorp10 - One of my favourite apps
Contains almost anything a layperson or food/health enthusiast would want to know about nutritional components of food.
Becsgotswag - 👍
Very American-based with no consideration of other nations; however, perfect for raw items such as fruit and vegetables.
All nick names - Very Useful
I really like this app it gives you a detailed description of basic foods and vitamin intake.
Sahand119 - Time killer
Awesome way to pass time and gain your knowledge about things that keep you healthy 😄
Dna-444 - It's good but it keeps crashing on me.
Not bad little apps..there is still lots of missing food..sweet potato is one and few others..would be great if it's not so costly to unlock the others..
Elmo Ellie - Wow
I love this app so much it tells you the real taste and if it is healthy everyone in my family loves this app!!!
Andyando906 - Spend the dough. It's worth it...
Anyone involved or working in nutrition will find this app a simple and comprehensive aid in referencing or educating in nutritional concepts.
Sarahtear - My food
Very good for the nutritional values, minerals, vitamins etc.......
Also, helpful to anyone overcoming, or fighting an "Eating Problem as it is factual.
Nartran - Fantastic!
Great app! Information is presented clearly. Design and style are consistent. Great work. Thank you.
Vigilante333 - Good
Good app especially since it's free, but misses out on 5 Star rating because it lacks a breakdown of the fats into saturated/monounsaturated/polyunsaturated etc
Stars 4 - Health Bliss
Very useful app.... I would recommend this to anyone that takes care in their diet intake
redjuniperberry - It now has adds!
Great app - very informative BUT you get adds even if you have paid for it! Adds are not ok with me.
Jlw89urbdkwe - Great
So helpful, definitely recommended
BeccccW - Needs iodine
I really like this app however you need to add iodine as it's an important mineral and people are very deficient in Australia.
Jess.84.W - This is brilliant
As a quick nutritional reference this is brilliant, I love that it connects to Wikipedia too
Dipper2011 - Great app
This is a great app well done. Very useful information.
Sadlerij - Good app
Useful for designing and planning baby food recipes for my infant who has decided not to drink all her milk.
ghegypt - Excellent app!
Easy to navigate and very informative!
Kaamana - Great App.
I really like this app. and I found so helpful to my health condition. Great work and thank you.
Darkjimick - Great app
Great app but would be better with more foods like chocolate and chicken
Anonymous3333333333333333 - !!
So simple and such good info. Great set out also.
Wynterz12 - Good, but could be better
Good app, but needs more foods added, also list cooked meats instead of raw, and break down the fats.
Adam Levak - Good but not amazing
Good for what it had on there, many food items to be added though ...
Miss LOL Chick - Luv this app
This is a very useful app for models. I really like how it connects to wikipedia.
Colin Spain - Very handy app
Use it often. Have Menieres disease so look for sodium levels under 120gm per 100gm.
Yoyobunny - Food
Omg I love this app it's so good
Hope you get nice reveiws

macotl - Great app, one clear improvement to make
I like the app, but I’d like to be able to create ingredients when some are missing or the nutrients are totally different than what I’m eating
FHHJFVJFGBVCC - Am I missing something?
I paid $7 for this app and I can’t add a food with the nutritional info from the package. I can only pick from app list and the products I have are not on the list. I’m in Canada and it’s only big American food companies. I would like to chart food I buy from local markets.
skynet2014 - A must have
A must have for any health conscious person.
It would also be grate if a comparison section be added.
r.f.l.p.s.n.t - Exactement ce que je cherchais!
J’ai fais de longue recherche sur l’appstore pour trouver une application comme celle-là. L’application est simple et complète, particulièrement pour les aliments frais. Des tableaux facilement compréhensibles contenant tout les micro nutriments. Il est aussi possible d’ajouter des aliments qui sont transformer ou particulier à votre région.
midnorton6197 - Disappointing
I echo the views of a number of reviewers, especially those of us in Canada. I just tried to find out how nutritious my breakfast was. None of the packaged ingredients could be found - looks like I might have had more luck had I been eating Cheerios or Fruitloops or some other frosted delight, but I wasn’t - and these are mainstream items like milk, margarine, yoghurt, almond butter, peanut butter and bread! There is definitely detail there, but after reading more reviews (I know, I should have paid more attention before 🤦🏼♂️) I am not sure I trust it.
ahl71718 - Very good database but calculations for meals not accurate
AlexZandi - Apple Watch app keeps crashing
Redmozart - App not on I Watch
Is not available on iwatch as was stated.
Khethma - Actually tracks sugars independently!
To manage IBS, I have to follow a strict diet that severely restricts my sucrose and starch intake. I’ve tried dozens of apps and programs, some of them very expensive, all in an effort to track my sugars independently. This is the ONLY app I’ve tried that actually does it. Some claim to, but many that claim to actually don’t. This one DOES! And it’s easy to use. It syncs nicely with the iPhone Health app too.
However, you do have to be cautious with some foods because it makes assumptions about how you’re preparing it that might lead it to include incorrect nutritional data. For example, it includes a high amount of lactose in the scrambled egg entry. There’s no way to tell for sure, but I think this is because it assumes you’re preparing your scrambled eggs with milk. If that’s how you prepare them, then that’s fine, but it’s not something everyone does. So it works better if you build your own recipes from the basic ingredients, which it lets you do.
All in all, if you want an app that actually lets you track all the nutrients in your food, like separate sugars, this is the best and possibly only app out there that really lets you do it. For that reason, I’ve given it 5 stars.
Acr20160121 - So far so good
Just downloaded the app. It has comprehensive information about items that are found. Some items are difficult to find. Perhaps the ability to scan the item with the iPad and have the nutritional info uploaded would help. The journal is easy to use and add items, even creating a recipe is easy. I'll keep using the app - its working out well for making sure I get everything I need to stay well.
Nathalie Quebec - Super app
J'adore cette application
wyattryatt - Disappointing.
The app was one of my favourites when I first downloaded it. It has a lot of very in depth information, but as I used it more and more I realized it wasn't necessary accurate. The more of a certain food I added to my journal, the lower my daily percentage of a nutrient went, rather than up. Since the newest update, the beef category isn't showing any foods under vitamin B12.
Too many inconsistencies and inaccuracies have left me to just use skipthepie.org and delete this app. I hope they fix it, because it has promise, and isn't cheap.
J0e0s1s9@ - Suggestion...
Hey, just started red with the app and have been happy, but I do have one suggestion. In the journal overview section is it possible to show the units of measure (eg. mg) for the vitamins/minerals in addition to the daily recommended allowance/requirements? Specifically interested in this information for Iron. Thank you!
Magz2015 - Fantastic
This app has ALL the nutritional information you'll ever need about every single food item or meal, store bought, cooked or from a restaurant. Simply awesome!
Gramma62 - Great
This is a great App very helpful and easy to use!!
Bramlin - I really like nutrient app
This is a very comprehensive tool for finding out if you are getting the right nutrition. I have a gut issue and need to keep an eye on getting a healthy diet. Kudos to the creators.
Tupix - Good
This is a nice app. It would be nice if the database would be more extensive specially with packaged foods. This is the only app that actually gives me more nutritional info on foods. All the others want to charge a yearly membership.
HarryS719 - Awesome
Fantastic nutrition app! Would be cool if there was some description of the benefits of each nutrient.
D Hosh - Awesome
I love this app. You can make recipes and save them to figure out how many calories you are consuming. I lost 10kg so far counting my daily intake with this app and a $20 scale.
Faz Shah - Awesome ideal app
The best design nutrition app and very helpful
And fantastic app ever
Steve-321 - Best Nutrition App Ever
I've tried other nutrition apps and there are none as broad as this.
Stephlea - Great app
I love this app to help track nutrients, especially during pregnancy. I would love for the app to have more foods included.
Znbhg89 - Good
Very useful and easy to use app but would love an option to create custom ingredients for your recipes aside from the ones offered in the database. Also, it would be nice if you could add an entire recipe into your journal to save time.
Geo_d - Best nutrient app by far
An easy and concise way to track and tally almost any food metric you like. (I say almost because I'm sure someone somewhere could find something. However, I couldn't think of a single improvement)
Great job! Keep up the awesome work!!
Beffb - Great info site
Very detailed information, clearly laid out.
flossalot - Very Informative
Love to use this app for figuring out nutritional values in recipes. Thanks!
Sarjola - So far it's best nutritional data app I could find
Update: would like to see the Amino Acid Score and Completeness Score. The amino acid score is very important.
Two days after I requested they update the app so that one could combine nutritional values from more than one food they updated the app so you could do just that. I'm not sure if they listened to my request or it was something they already had planned, either way now that I can combine nutritional values from several foods I will use this app all the time for designing smoothies that have a high and well balanced nutritional value. I feel now this app is definitely deserves a five star rating.
Below is my review from before the update.
You be nice to see an update so we can combine foods within the app four instance a half a cup of Brazil nuts and a half a cup of sesame seeds and then be able to see the total nutritional value of the two foods together.
MtotheCMC - Totally worth it but....
I love that app. It's sync with Apple Health app. and Wiki! I recommend Foodle all the way!!
Unfrozen.Jon - Excellent Health Tool
It gives you precise nutritional info so you can make an informed decision about what you eat and avoid green washing.
EvilG71 - Easy to use
I like it a lot!
Tenet5953 - Comprehensive
Just started, looks good. Seems that the "talk balloon" or info appears where the "back" button should be to go back to the alphabetical list of foods.
CLKarcz - Great info!
Like the info provided. Great resource. Wish the add-ons weren't so pricey, though.
Jknielse - Poor food selection and overall workflow
I paid for this app and was very quickly disappointed. Many products you can buy in grocery stores are not present in the app, and even when you do find the item's you're looking for, there is no built-in way to add their nutrition information together. You essentially have to do everything by hand anyway.
Save your money, just look at the nutrition labels on the things you buy.
Sour_Grapes - iOS 6 Working yea!
Thank you very much for the fix! Much, much better now.
Upgraded to 3.0.2 and when I start the app, the title screen comes up, and after a few seconds it "minimises" itself. This makes it very difficult to use the app.
Lyn1983 - Missing nutrient discriptions!!!
I love this app and for the longest time I hesitated buying an upgrade for it. I finally paid the $2 and I was disappointed to know that if you click on a nutrient, it doesn't teach you anything about it! I thought that's what I was paying for. Now I feel ripped off.
Jean-Francois Moreau - Content is good but...
The purchase description is unclear. I made 2 purchases and I was disappointed with what I got. I would not have made these purchases.
LDMMPB - Will not open on iPad
PLEASE FIX BUG!! Will not open on iPad!! Works on iPhone but not the iPad. I even rebooted my iPad and still didn't open!!
Notwhatiwant - Too many options within categories like meat and meals
I preferred the older version as there are now too many options, especially within meat and meal categories that have been added. Now when I search the nutrient protein, the first 100 are all meat options. I can no longer discover the proteins in vegetables, nuts and seeds.
It has become more difficult to navigate
judcat - Wow
I love it! All his information and in one place too! What I really like though, is how they've included many obscure foods as well.
Élie Parisé - No!
Bonjour cette application est super moche!
Tr369 - Love it!
Great info in this app! I reference it all the time!
Noms22 - Needs a little work
Great app with lots of useful information. It would be nice to be able to sort by category and see the information on the item without having to go back to the main list though. I just don't think it was designed very well.
Shelly Anne Seifridt - Teacher
Amazing! So simple and so helpfull!
Ninjaratings - Really great quick database of nutrient, mineral content
Deadly, sick, killer app
Bgroom - Nurse
Helpful quick tool!
FlamencoFire - Great app!
Easy to use, with complete list of everything.
Lapu lapu 👍 - the best
keep up the good work ( thank you making it easy )
Farhad44 - Just I say thank you
Exactly one I was looking for
Easy and useful
Hope in upgrade version could get the result for mix values
JM425795 - Love it
Very useful, especially when you need to work on getting a specific nutrient. (:

@MinThomp Oh, sorry, the point is to make sure the nutrients in your mucus = nutrition facts 100% values.
UK Water Filters
"Soda and other sweet drinks contain a lot of sugar, are high in calories and lack healthy nutrients"
@LisaMcDont @sdelvisco @StopTheCriminal @Drgarthdavis @nutrition_facts The vegan diet alone lacks key nutrients like b12, omega 3s, iron and zinc. I hope you are supplementing.

Get your doctor to test your mucus for mineral amounts and compare those to the 100% nutrition facts values. That's the only way to know what your should be injesting in the first place. Checking your blood for those nutrients is like Checking your oil to do a smog test.
