The Balancing Act


Smart Food Allergy App

"Check" out this app you can download and use on your smartphone to help ensure peace of mind in the grocery store like never before.

For people with serious food allergies the question of “what is in that?” isn’t just for curiosity sake, it can mean a severe allergic reaction that could result in doctor, or worse yet, a trip to the emergency room.

Serious food allergies currently affect over 15 million people in this country alone, and that number is rising every day. Knowing if a food is safe to consume can be confusing, time consuming and very frustrating.

ContentChecked is an app you can download and use on your smartphone to help ensure peace of mind in the grocery store like never before.

Once you start using ContentChecked, set up your particular allergy profile and use it to scan regular grocery items, you can be confident in your shopping choices, secure that you will not unintentionally cause a allergic reaction in yourself or your loved one suffering from an allergy to gluten, dairy, peanuts and more. Not only will it alert you to your potential reaction, it can suggest alternatives that are allergen free.

ContentChecked employs six full time registered Nutritionists in charge of managing and updating one of the largest food allergen databases of its kind. All ingredients in question are mapped according to the FDA guidelines and the USA’s largest Food Allergy Association (F.A.R.E’s) allergy alerts.

Now when shopping, instead of scouring the nutritional labels and ingredient lists, a quick scan of the products bar code will cross check information about your particular allergies, and even checks for multiple allergies simultaneously.

During the holiday season shopping and cooking for friends and family is time consuming enough, but when you add in people with food allergies, which most of us do now, it can be downright overwhelming.

Now armed with the ContentChecked food allergy app on your smartphone, you can shop with confidence and ease.

ContentChecked helps you make sure that everyone enjoys their food without the threat of an allergic reaction.
