Food Safety iPhone Apps

This article in Food Safety News talks about iPhone apps for food safety. Hm, I guess every market can find an iPhone niche!

  • Food Watch New York City: This app uses data from the NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene to give inspection ratings for restaurants nearby, as determined by the phone's GPS.
  • Locavore: This one keeps you apprised of local food available near you. It also locates farmers' markets, tells you when fruits & vegetables are coming into season, and links to Wikipedia and Epicurious sites.
  • Still Tasty: This app tells you the shelf life of your produce, products, and groceries. It tells you the expiration date of your foods, including an alert function. Finally, it tells you how long you can keep various types of foods in the fridge or freezer.
  • Good Guide: Good Guide helps you find safe, healthy, sustainable products by scanning the barcode. You can find product ratings, and the health/environmental/social performance of various brands.
Happy shopping and eating!
