We know how hard it is to find the time to monitor what you are eating when you have a busy schedule. However, it is necessary to track what we eat before it becomes a problem as monitoring nutrition is the only solution to reserve these trends. The DietSensor is here to simplify the process for you! It seems pretty simple in theory: it is a User-Friendly app, taking you 10 times fewer clicks to log a food than with other manual input methods. For even more precise and accurate analysis, our app integrates with the SCiO spectrometric scanner to identify the chemical makeup of what you are about to eat. This even allows analyzing homemade food, taking into account specific cooking and additive ingredients, like cooking oil.You can still download the app for free even if you do not buy the scanner. It is the real market for people with chronic health conditions like heart disease and diabetes, said Rémy Bonnasse, the co-founder of DietSensor.
