What kinds of food scans can DietSensor read from your SCiO?
You can scan any food with a single, or homogeneous, texture. In order to get an accurate result of the scan, the scanned surface of the food and its internal composition must be made of the same component. For example, mashed potatoes would be considered a homogeneous food, whereas a sandwich or a donut with chocolate frosting would not.
SCiO in itself can scan multiple matters. For more information about the scans your SCiO can manage, we invite you to visit our page of supported food here
How do I log non-homogenous foods into the DietSensor app?
We want to make sure that you can log any food, even non-homogeneous foods that you cannot scan into the DietSensor app. That’s why we have embedded one of the most extensive food databases in the world, with more than 600,000 food items.
This enormous database is powered by Fatsecret, a strategic partner that provides us with the best database on the market using an open API platform. You can easily and quickly log your food using a search feature or a barcode scan.

Track and field athlete by Grace Xmudio – March 23 “I have used the DietSensor app and SCiO scanner for three weeks. I thought it would be like all the fitness apps basically guessing on the nutrition intake. For athletes who run competitively and train daily like me, I use the app to try to optimize my nutrition as a way to improve my times. I have always believed that paying attention to the food intake side would bump my performance up a couple of notches and guess what, it did. I love the food tracking because there’s nothing as accurate as this in the store. There is two ways to scan your food. I vary it Sometimes I use the app with the scanner but when I am out in the field I use the database function for inputting date, time and food tracking is phenomenal. I now connect my calls burned (with my fitness app) to the dietsensor nutrition to get the most accurate result possible. Nice work guys. Food and nutrition are equally important when trying to improve fitness.”
DietSensor – new and faster ways to track nutritional stats by VASewist – April 4
“A healthy, well-balanced eating plan is very important to my weight control strategy. After losing 100 pounds, keeping track of my nutritional statistics is critical to my maintaining my weight loss. DietSensor has become a crucial partner in managing my healthy lifestyle. Many apps help your track your food intake but DietSensor makes tracking easy. After launching DietSensor on my iPhone and turning on the Bluetooth scale, I put the food on the scale and the food’s weight appears on my iPhone. Then I scan the barcode from the food’s package with my iPhone’s camera and immediately see the nutritional data for the food I am about to eat. One area where DietSensor really shines is when your meal consists of many different ingredients. Let’s say you are eating a multi-vegetable salad with a protein like chicken. You place your bowl on the scale and press the Tare button. Put lettuce in the bowl and identify it and press add. Lettuce statistics are recorded. Put your next food in the bowl – say carrots. DietSensor immediately recognizes that the weight has changed and pulls up the screen for you to identify the food and then add it. Keep going with whatever else you want in your salad. In the end, you get an accurate nutritional analysis of every item in your salad. It’s easy and fast. At the same time, you can see how you salad lines up with your daily goals and which carbs, proteins or fat might be lacking. This feature is also great for building and recording recipes. I have also been very impressed with the responsiveness of the DietSensor team to my feedback and suggestions. They want DietSensor to be easy to use and to help users achieve a healthy lifestyle. Every update to the app shows they are listening to what users want and need. I highly recommend DietSensor – it has helped me keep my weight under control.”
SCiO is easy to use By Nathalie, April 21
“Since I’m using DietSensor’s app, the results are clearly visible on my silhouette! After going through all kinds of diet, I had reached a point where my diet had become completely unbalanced and thus leading to
severe nutritional deficiencies! DietSensor allows you to balance your meals and accurately manage your macronutrients and caloric intake. It is very friendly user and very intuitive as well. Thanks to its large database, you can easily find what you are looking for. In addition, I use
the SCIO sensor which is also very easy to use, reliable and conducted with great discretion (useful for outdoor meals as well).”
