CALL FOR BUG app works by using your mobile phone camera to scan the barcode of a packaged food. It then uses science-based algorithms to calculate and then display simple nutrition profiles of the food
Scanning the barcode of a packaged food will find the data and calculations held in our database. This is presented as easy-to-understand nutrition information that can be viewed as either a Health Star Rating (HSR) or traffic-light colored icons for key nutrients and energy.
In the Traffic Light viewing mode, colour-coded icons show the amount of adverse nutrients such as fat, salt and sugar. Green indicates a healthier choice with lower levels of these nutrients, amber has medium levels, with red indicating higher levels and is least healthy. As well as the nutrition information, it displays a list of similar products that you can switch to as a healthier choice.
