NHS Food Scanner app
Ever wondered how much sugar is in your fave cola or salt is in your sauce? Find out with the Food Scanner app!
The app uses Augmented Reality to help bring to life what’s inside your food and drink right in front of your eyes!
There are certain limitations depending on what device you have and if your device supports ARCore. If it doesn’t not to worry it will show you a 3D scenario instead so you won’t miss out on all the fun.
It’s time to get scanning! Just find a food or drink barcode to quickly see what’s inside. You might be surprised by what you find!
