How do I search for food?

Answer

There are 2 ways to search for a food:

You can search by text in the app or on the website.

Go to the Add Food on the mobile app and use the search bar at the top of the screen. try to be as descriptive as you can for example search for semi-skimmed milk instead of just milk

  1. Search by Text - type in a short description. As you type, the closest results will be displayed.
  2. Search Popular Foods - as it says, search the most popular foods lists - however these don't include everything in the database. If the food you want isn't there try Search by Text.
  3. Barcode Search - enter the last 6 digits of a barcode.
  4. Search My Foods - a quick way to look up foods you've previously saved as 'Favourites', items you've added manually and any recipes you've created.
