Tinga is an app that helps users make healthier food choices.
Shop right, eat well and live great
We all enjoy food differently – but making healthy choices when food shopping can be tricky.
There are so many hurdles to navigate if you have special dietary needs or wish to eat more healthy, organic whole food produce. The messaging available is often overwhelming, as are the hours required reading nutrient values while shopping!
With Tinga, it couldn’t be simpler to take a holistic view of your grocery basket and shop smart when it comes to your family’s dietary lifestyles.
You can think of Tinga as your nutritional shopping assistant – here to help you positively change your long-term eating behaviours, master your nutrient values and shop for food with total confidence!
HOW IT WORKS
The thinking behind Tinga
Tinga makes it easy to find healthier foods in nearby shops that meet your dietary needs and social choices.
Shop by category, item or meal then add foods to your grocery list based on your personal journey.
Our unique online tech boosts your shopping confidence (and saves so much time) by combining retailer stores, pricing, ingredients, and each item’s nutritional content in one convenient location.
We help you create a balanced shopping list to restore and maintain your body’s nutritional balance, plus make more sustainable choices for our planet.
We’re proud of the innovative features we’ve created specifically for Tinga – and bet you’re going to love them, too.
Allergen Avoiders & Social Tags
Tinga remembers your personal allergens and saves you scrolling unsafe foods with easily-set parameters across available retailers. Tinga also supports social tags like Gluten-Free, Peanut-Free, Vegan or Low FODMap, empowering your personal health and planet-friendly shopping choices.
Many modern foods feature an abundance of less healthy fats (e.g. saturated fats), sodium and sugar – even those marketed as healthy options! Tinga’s easy-sliding scale filters block unsuitable products so you can focus on what’s best for your nutritional balance (e.g. set sodium limit to 7% per serving).
Import Recipe Ingredients
Dreaming up exciting meals each day can be tricky – so why not import your favourite recipe’s ingredients, save them for future use, and effortlessly shop for the best quality options? Preserve your personal health and save money by whipping up your most-loved meals without having to resort to takeout. And when possible, remember to shop locally for whole fresh foods and support your communities!
Thumb Rating System
Tinga converts nutritional data into our Thumb Rating System, a handy scoring visual for quickly identifying the nutritional value of your food choices and considering healthier available options. It’s a fantastic feature for swapping out less nutritious items with fresh whole foods that taste as great.
Grocery List Scoring
Tinga rates fresh whole food choices as ‘On The Plate’ and processed foods as ‘Off The Plate’ then uses these to generate a total basket score (found in your grocery list plus your user profile). The goal is simple: achieve a Plate Weighting score that’s more green than red!
Tinga also delivers plate weighting based on Produce, Wholegrain, Protein or Other. User targets are 50% Produce, 25% Wholegrain, 25% Protein and 0% other. Visualising your shopping list identifies areas of opportunity, improves purchase choices and results in a healthier, happier you!
Our users are our #1 priority – that’s right, you! In fact, our sole purpose is to empower your healthier food choices by reinforcing positive behaviours. We’ve built Tinga to meet you right where you’re at in life – rather than ask you to adapt to Tinga.
