Foodsniffr aims to provide you with all the information you need to lead a safe, allergen-free life. Our goal is to enable you to lead healthy, full lives every single day. Towards this goal, we have designed FoodSniffr with the following features:
Create once; Update as often as you wish
A quick profile allows you to tell us about all the foods that you are allergic to, & optionally, about your diets & foods you are avoiding.
How to access:
To access the profile pages, simply click on the 'My Profile' link in the yellow bar at the very top of the page.
Your Home Page
Personal Food & Restaurant Recommendation Just For You
Based on your profile, we filter through thousands of foods & restaurants that may be safe for you, & display relevant ones for you on your very own home page. This page refreshes every time you visit it. Get this: you no longer have to scan through hundreds of foods out there & check if they are a good fit for you; we have done that for you on your home page.
Hover For Basic Info About Food/ Book/ Restaurant
Simply take your mouse over any of the thumbnails on the home page to see some information about that food product or restaurant.
Click on the View All link (marked with a red circle in the adjoining image) to see a full list of foods & restaurants that match your profile.
View All Foods Or Restaurants Or Books
This page displays tons of foods/ restaurants/books that match your profile. Restaurants are displayed in nearest-first order: those nearest to your current zip code.
Filter the list using the filters in the left column
The filters allow you to refine the list shown to you. For foods, you will be able to filter by food types; for example, you can choose to see only Snacks, or Breakfast items, & further filter the sub-categories there. Go on, try it!
Restaurants can be filtered by Type, Cuisine, or Menu Type
The Devil's In The Details
We know, so we have made key information available & ready for you.
Each food item has the following details captured for you to check out: manufacturer name, full list of ingredients, nutrition info where available. For Restaurants, we currently list the restaurant name & full address, phone, & web url. Over time, we hope to add the full allergen-free menu too.
This is your space! Use Faves, Ratings, Comments, Tags

This will save this item to your Faves list, which can then be accessed from My Profile > View My Activity > My Faves.
