Some foodie "Apps"

We caught part of The Splendid Table yesterday
April 9, 2011 : The Splendid Table with Lynne Rossetto Kasper

Always an enjoyable listen
The following caught our ear: iPhone apps

Ratio Smart Phone App: Video Demo | Michael Ruhlman

"This application will be of special value to anyone who works in a kitchen and to any and all culinary students. And you chefs, authors, and bloggers who develop your own recipes, this application provides the trunk from which a thousand variations branch off. I hope you’ll have a look!"


 Fooducate: "We’ve recently launched an iPhone app, simply called Fooducate. The app lets shoppers make better, healthier choices at the supermarket. It empowers you with all the tips and tricks we’ve been writing about on this blog."

With the Fooducate iPhone app, you can
- Automatically scan a product barcode
- See product highlights (both good & bad)
- Compare products
- Select better alternatives!!

We’ve got over 160,000 products in our food database, and growing daily. When you scan a product, our software  analyzes the information found in the nutrition panel and ingredient list, and comes up with a rating and a tidbit or two explaining the product.

You get to see the stuff manufacturers don’t want you to notice, such as excessive sugar, tricky trans fats, various additives and preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, controversial food colorings, and more…
