Project Description has been dedicated to being the most credible and comprehensive resource for food ingredients on the web. We are now branching out into the realm of mobile devices with our first iPhone app!


Scanner – Scan a product’s UPC with your iPhone’s camera and a picture of the item will show up instantly. Click on the picture to view more information such as allergens, ingredients, nutrients, vitamins, and the FoodFacts Health Score.

Health Score – The FoodFacts Health Score ranges from F to A and has a color coding scale which allows users to quickly evaluate a food’s nutrition, vitamin, and ingredient content. The score allows you to determine if the food is a healthful addition to your diet without struggling to comprehend complex charts or ingredient lists.

Nutrition Information – Each product listed in our database contains nutrition information to tell you what nutrients, vitamins, and ingredients are found in that item.

Favorites List – Create a list of your favorite items for easy access on the app and website.
