Ratings and Reviews
This is an absolutely wonderful app, and does not deserve less than 5 stars.
But there is one thing that may be incorrect...
So I can eat all dairy products but I can’t eat anything that was made to kill an animal. So I unchecked dairy products and I checked the E-numbers(and the possible e-numbers). So when I tried scanning the Mac and cheese that I had in my house(and I know that craft uses animal rennet to make their whey) nothing showed up for e-numbers. And I had this same problem with the enzymes. Because enzymes can also be from rennet sources. But nothing came up for enzymes. So the only thing I really wish was included was that you would have a vegetarian option(in which it would detect any ingredient that may have possibly been from the killing of an animal, which includes whey, enzymes, and etc.) because this would also work for those who eat halal and kosher.
But honestly this app is absolutely amazing and I can’t understand how much time must have been put in to make this app. You did a superb job, and you make it so much easier for me! Because sometimes when I buy things from the store there are some weird ingredients I have never heard about so I am sure this will help me detect them. This is wonderful! I needed something like this for so long! Now I finally have it! And it is for free!

Wow, thanks for the thorough review! We will do some extra research based on what you wrote, because it seems like we should definitely add those extra words. Could you maybe send us a photo of the Mac and cheese packaging at firstname.lastname@example.org? We'd love to better understand what we overlooked! Thanks again, Jordi 🍊🥰
I just downloaded the app and I love the idea. Can there be explanations for each category? For example what is an Animal E number and why would some people not want that. Or palm oil and why would people want to know if it’s in their food. I’m new to trying to live my best life 😊 and I’m not sure why I would or would not want some different categories.
Another idea is to add a category for certain vitamins and minerals. If someone is looking, for example, a product that is high in iron your amazing app could point out ingredients that would give said person an idea of what high iron ingredients are.
Make a calorie counter and make it so you can scan the nutritional facts box and it does the work for you. The user would then just put in the amount of something they had.
I cannot wait to see how this app evolves. ❤️

Hi Angela, thanks for your expanded review and thanks for your ideas! We definitely will take a look at it to make this more visible. There's a lot that we can still do and add, but for now we're first trying to make this as easily usable as possible! Do let us know if you have more ideas for the future of the app, best via social media (@sooseeapp). Cheers, - Maartje 🍊
Five stars is not enough for this amazing app!
If you are like me and aren’t necessarily allergic to a lot of different foods but preservatives and unnecessary ingredients! Whether for flavor smell or preservatives in food that make you feel sluggish and horrible! Well then, there is an app for you... If you are a parent, or your family or your kin to someone that has food allergies or is on a specialty diet, this app will change your/their life and make it a whole lot easier & hopefully healthier! I went through my refrigerator and cabinets and was shocked to find unhealthy things and foods that I thought were healthy and safe to eat. It just goes to show you that you have to do a little extra work and can’t rely on companies to prominently display ingredients preservatives etc., in your food!

Wauw thanks so much DeClint! Would've loved to see you giving more than 5 stars 🌟. But we're so happy with these words and the maximum amount of stars possible. And yes, don't always fully trust the marketing of products.. Happy it helps you and your family/friends! Amazing that you help spreading the word 🥰🍊 - Maartje
