Do you consume enough fiber each day? If you are like most Americans, then you probably consume about 10 to 15 grams of fiber a day-this is just not enough.

DietSensor, is the first nutritional coaching app to help you better manage your fiber intake and chronicle conditions and fitness as well.  First the DietSensor scans your food, reads the spectrometric scans from your SCiO scanner and then sends accurate analysis of your homogeneous food or beverage to your smartphone. It also provides you with accurate results with any homogeneous food, even with HOMEMADE dishes and beverages that do not have a nutritional label. The whole process takes only one click to log it, ten times less clicks than manual input methods to input processed food.
