I don’t even have words for how useful this is to me. Many people (including me) with migraines or taking MAOI antidepressants cannot have the amino acid Tyramine, which occurs naturally in certain foods (like nuts) or as foods are aged (like olives, dried fruit, soy sauce, and all aged cheese). It stinks because the list is enormous and complex, and some foods are much worse than others. Between nuts, cheese, soy, anything dried or aged, bacon, nitrates, nitrites, MSG, alcohol, chocolate, all fake sweeteners, beef... my trigger list is enormous and complex. I also can’t have most thickeners because of IBS. I know this is nice for vegans, vegetarians, and allergies, but this is priceless for migraine sufferers when no one has heard of Tyramine. At least y’all get allergen, GF, and V labels! I have to remember all 93 and a half ingredients and check for each one. I can NEVER have blue cheese or parmesan, but a little bit of peanut is okay if I’m careful. So. I can even group ingredients into serious ingredients vs “eh, I’ll risk it to eat this!” Anyways, I just downloaded and very sadly missed the one day a subscription was free but I am so excited to use this more!!! THANK YOU!
The scanning is smooth and fast. It’s really accurate, and I haven’t missed anything with it yet. Super good tool for finding additives, sugars and allergens in foods. Highly recommend
On my iPhone 11 ... No place does it say “Soosee Supporter” Just BECOME a Soosee Supporter NO lifetime free option Thus the 1 star
I have food allergies, and I’m always reading packages. This is going to speed things up a lot. Of course i can double check myself before i eat it, but it will keep me from standing around in the store forever checking ingredients lists. You can also add you own categories if they don’t have your particular allergy already listed. I’ve been testing it on pantry items and its been working great so far! Happy it exists!
If you are like me and aren’t necessarily allergic to a lot of different foods but preservatives and unnecessary ingredients! Whether for flavor smell or preservatives in food that make you feel sluggish and horrible! Well then, there is an app for you... If you are a parent, or your family or your kin to someone that has food allergies or is on a specialty diet, this app will change your/their life and make it a whole lot easier & hopefully healthier! I went through my refrigerator and cabinets and was shocked to find unhealthy things and foods that I thought were healthy and safe to eat. It just goes to show you that you have to do a little extra work and can’t rely on companies to prominently display ingredients preservatives etc., in your food!
Seeing this expand I to other non-food products is exactly where I was hoping it would grow. So excited to see how this app helps me become a more responsible consumer. Thank you!!
I just downloaded the app and I love the idea. Can there be explanations for each category? For example what is an Animal E number and why would some people not want that. Or palm oil and why would people want to know if it’s in their food. I’m new to trying to live my best life 😊 and I’m not sure why I would or would not want some different categories. Another idea is to add a category for certain vitamins and minerals. If someone is looking, for example, a product that is high in iron your amazing app could point out ingredients that would give said person an idea of what high iron ingredients are. Make a calorie counter and make it so you can scan the nutritional facts box and it does the work for you. The user would then just put in the amount of something they had. I cannot wait to see how this app evolves. ❤️
Ive tried a handful of those barcode scanner apps where you scan the barcode and based upon the allergies, the app tells you good or bad. The problem with those apps are that there are so many different products that often times there is no match and I end up reading the ingredients myself. What I LOVE about this app is it scans the ingredient list to question the possible inclusion of allergens. I can easily determine if these keyword are a problem. No database to update, no waiting for a label analysis.
This is an awesome app!
Soosee is marvelous, and dang, it's about time something like this exists!!! The design and usage of emojis are entertaining as well as fun. The user experience is nearly flawless. I'm lactose intolerant and have very specific food allergies. Finding an ingredient and letting my camera do the scanning for me instead of scanning it with my eyes is such a timesaver.
