Photos: 15 apps that are changing the food industry

Fooducate

Fooducate was created to help you understand food labels and ingredient lists, which are often confusing. The app addresses marketing hype and health claims for all types of food products, showing the things that companies don't want you to see: high fructose corn syrup, excessive sugar, trans fats, and more. All you have to do is scan a product you find.
