Your diet. Your way. Select any combination of allergen, diet and health filters, then scan the product barcode to see if it fits. It's like shopping with a dietitian!

Grocery shopping is complicated. Your child is allergic to peanuts—and dairy. Your partner is a vegan who avoids gluten. You have digestive issues and high cholesterol. It's hard to figure out which foods are safe to eat. Sifter's Scan By Diet makes it easy. Simply select the filters that are important to you and create your personal diet:

– Allergens and Ingredient Concerns (gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts, shellfish, added sugars, etc.)
– Health Diets (celiac, diabetes, FODMAP, heart or blood pressure health, etc.)
– Medications (antibiotics, statins, MAOIs, etc.)
– Lifestyle Diets (clean-style, keto, paleo, vegan, Mediterranean, etc.)
– Responsible Practices (grassfed, hormone free, fair trade, etc.)

Save your filter combinations in a MyDiet Profile. Create and save as many profiles as you'd like—for yourself, for your family.

Sifter's Scan By Diet lets you scan a product barcode to learn whether the item matches the filters you've selected. Green means the product fits, red means it doesn't. Scan By Diet will also show why a product doesn’t fit. It's simple, accurate and free.

Sifter’s team of registered dietitians, food scientists, and developers continuously incorporates the latest evidence-based recommendations given by dietitians and doctors for the widest variety of diets, health conditions and medications. Our proprietary algorithms analyze product nutrition and ingredient information for compliance on hundreds of diets, allergens, food concerns, and responsible practices, as well as food interactions with prescription medications.

I would give five stars, but…

Almost 80% of the things I want to check (protein bars and “healthy” snack bars with high fiber, low sugar and carbs (hopefully) aren’t in the database. I can only scan so many for them.

Overall it seems like a great app and unlike many, it seems like it may help diabetics more than many of the others. Just wish the database was better.

Wow, what an amazing app! This app scans food products I want to know about and quickly “sifts” through my designated dietary restrictions based on medical conditions, lifestyle preferences and so much more and then tells me instantly if the food product is ok to eat. Knowing what foods everyone in a household can eat that satisfy gluten-free, vegetarian and heart healthy options is tough. This makes finding what works so much easier. Love it!

The scanner is 👌

Saves a bunch of time at a new store. I can scan stuff instead of reading through ingredients of everything I pick up. Really useful for when I travel and shop someplace that doesn’t carry familiar products
