Food additives for Android

By Mr Schak Free

Developer's Description

Food Additives is a free, ad-free application, which helps you identify more than 650 additives (E numbers) that are present in many everyday food products.


For each additive:

The level of danger

The origin (animal, vegetable, chemical ...)

the type (Food coloring, emulsifier, preservative ...)

The name and all the possible names

the status that lets you know if the additive is halal / kosher / vegetarian or vegan.

A highly optimized search mode (by number, eg 124 or by name, eg: Cochineal Red)

Integrated sorting mode to simplify navigation through our database

A complete and up-to-date database (more than 650 food additives)

A dictionary of the most used words in the world of additives

Information on nanoparticles and ultra-processed foods

Sources for more details (using internet)

A product scan option :

Since version 2.0 the application offers a paid scan service.

More than 500,000 international products available via the Open Food Facts database, hence the following new permissions requests :

- Permission to use the camera: to be able to scan a product the application uses the camera.

Note: It is not possible to take pictures or record videos via the app.

- Permission to use the internet: as you can imagine, a database of more than 500 000 products can not be downloaded to the device, therefore the application accesses the internet to collect the data of each scanned product.

What does the scan option offer?

For each scanned product:

List of food additives where each additive is clickable to display details

List of ingredients with allergens in bold

Possible traces of gluten, nuts, milk ... etc.

The origin of the ingredients

We are reachable by e-mail for any questions or suggestions for the improvement of the application.
