Fooducate Alternatives And Competitors


Fooducate is truly a combination of food + education as it goes beyond just calorie counting to expand the user’s understanding of food by grading the quality of it. Much like school, Fooducate assigns an A, B, C, or D scale based on macros, or the nutrients that give you energy (protein, carbs, and fats). Macros play an important role in weight management including signaling to the brain when we are full.

The app also grades food based on other ingredients manufacturers may not want you to notice like high fructose corn syrup and other additives. Additionally, Fooducate also gives a rationale as to why food is graded a certain way and offers alternative choices to further assist in making better choices.

Fooducate is also flexible in how it tracks food as it uses a food point system to assign points instead of calories, as the latter may be triggering for folks with disordered eating. Using the point features helps users meet nutritional goals instead of caloric goals. It’s also great for fine-tuning an individual’s diet, especially for athletes.
