RATING: 1 Star

The FoodWiz app can be used to scan and read product bar codes and find out which products meet your needs based on specific allergen restrictions, such as eggs, gluten, dairy or shell fish.


  • Has a website available for further information and technical support


  • Based in the United Kingdom and database isn't comprehensive
  • Can have issues scanning the bar code
  • Membership fee required
  • Frequently reports "no product found"

This app is a good idea and has a lot of potential, but based in the United Kingdom and lacking a comprehensive database, it isn’t useful enough for people who live in the U.S.
