AllergySafe is a mobile application that allows you to choose from a list of 7 of the most common food allergens, create your profile, and find safe to eat foods at several of the most common restaurant chains.
To start with, you set up your profile, and you can select what you are allergic to. Upon completing your profile, you can browse through several restaurants, view their complete menus, and based on which allergens you saved in your personal profile, you can see only the foods safe for you to eat. You can also search for restaurants near your location.
Note that certain foods may be processed in the same factory as a certain allergen, or there may be some risks of allergen cross-contamination. Some examples of this potential allergen mixing include, but are not limited to: shared fryers, cutting utensils, oils, and other manufacturing equipment. However, AllergySafe takes this into account, and all foods with such constraints will be shown with asterisks (*).

I have a student who told me about this app and very interested in using it for my daughter who has allergies to High Frutose Corn Syrup. Could you please add this to one of your allergies? Thank
Inaccurate Allergy Content
This app is well designed and easy to use and I wanted to love it, but the allergen information does not match my recent findings. My son has a soy allergy and after spending hours researching what items he may be able to eat at various restaurants, I started looking for an app to simplify the process. There are a number of food choices shown as safe that I had found to be unsafe according to the restaurant websites. For example, Subway’s website shows that all of their breads contain soy except for the wraps and flatbread, but the app shows 3 bread choices and flatbread. I don’t know if the app is using outdated sources or what, but I can’t trust the app enough to believe it will help my child stay safe.

Thank you so much for your feedback. The menu options in the restaurant gets updated very frequently. That's why we recommend using this app for information purposes only and confirm allergen information from the restaurant you are eating in. We try our best to keep the app updated.
Having the ability to be confident that I will not get sick or have a allergic reaction when I attend a fast food joint is a really helpful. I would recommend this to anybody.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
