I advise all of my clients to read their ingredient labels because I believe it to be one of the best things you can do for your health. But I used to always run up against a wall because it can be difficult for my clients to remember all of the hundreds of different additive names, what they exactly are, why they’re not great for the body, etc. Trash Panda takes away all of that stress and guesswork with their easy to use app!

This App will not help you eat healthier

This app has two basic call outs for “bad” ingredients (1) problematic and (2) questionable. This two tier system is a little too simple for an app and has one major flaw - it identifies added sugar as questionable and not problematic. The ingredient, added sugar, that is the main driver behind the majority of chronic disease in America is “questionable” and not “problematic”?

This app leans into the obfuscation of nutrition where preservatives are more demonized than the huge amounts of sugar being added to our diets - the causality is clear. This system allows companies to sell sugar loaded products that are given a “health washing,” because they are “natural”

For example, their bbq article recommends Noble Made by the New Primal’s BBQ Sauce, which uses Pineapple Juice as a main ingredient. Pineapple Juice is mainly fructose and should be avoided in any healthy diet, as fructose is not metabolized by the body and goes right to the liver, causing fatty liver disease (among many other problems).

Nutrition science is becoming clear. This app is not.

Great start

I like the idea behind this - to automate scanning ingredient lists and help educate me on some of the crazy things in food. But it not quite there. I am hoping they can extend this to allow modifications (I am okay with Honey!) and give an overall score to help me compare two products against each other (1 red is equivalent to how many yellows?) The heart is the in the right place, I am looking forward to the app being able to follow.
