Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

GlutSpotter SmartPhone App

The next app I am going to review is called the GlutSpotter smartphone app. On this application for your phone, you can very easily tell if an item have gluten in it or not.

This application is very important because nearly 1 in 140 Americans have Celiac disease and cannot consume gluten. With this app, if you are having any doubts, all you have to do is take a picture of the item and instantly, the app will tell you if the food is gluten free or contains gluten.

How exactly does this app work?

Well, by having all the right words and lists in its database, the app will quickly scan the database and look for words in the ingredient list of the product that would signal gluten is present.

This app def. saves time and is great if you want to try new foods. Also, you don’t have to type in the name of the item or look through a list. Instead, a simple picture does the trick and lets you know if you a few seconds if the food is safe or not.

Potential Negatives:

The app needs updated when new gluten products are created, and without an updating there could be a potential problem with your list.
