OpenFoodFacts

Today I learned about another food-related Android app on F-Droid called “OpenFoodFacts”, which helps to identify food and set up expectations about its healthiness. The app works simply by scanning the barcode of the product you bought or want to buy and the app will look it up online in a crowd sourced database of products. If you ever scanned the product before it’ll automatically find the product even when you are offline and provides you with all the infos you need to know to make an informed decision about it.

I came across this, after Bubu recommended it to me as comment on my last TIL article.
