Update: Support for Multiple Diets

Sep 3, 2021 - Spoonful

Multiple diets - Spoonful App

Exciting news! Today’s update features added support for multiple diets. That means you can combine any of the following segments to personalize the Discover, Scan, and Me tabs.

  • Low FODMAP
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegan
  • Vegetarian
  • Pescatarian

Psst… more diets coming soon.

How to Add or Change Diets

Once you’ve installed the latest version of the app, head to the Me tab and tap the Gear Icon in the top right-hand corner. Once there, you’ll notice a Diets input – tap that and add or subtract as many as you’d like. Note that you must have a Spoonful account to add or change diets.

Results Messaging and Scan Experience

Once you start scanning with multiple diets selected, you may notice the results tab looks a bit different. Here is what a green, yellow, and red product scan will look like:

Few things to note here:

  • The overall messaging has been tweaked to a more general statement that defines whether or not a product matches your diet.
  • Beside each underlined ingredient for red and yellow products, we now provide the initials of the diet it does not match with.
  • We’ve also added claims icons right below the product image. These are marketing claims that the brand has made about this product (think “Gluten Free”, “Vegan”, etc.).
  • Regardless of which diet or diets you choose, all of the ingredients and rules we’ve created have been checked and double-checked by our awesome team of registered dietitians.

We hope you enjoy this update!
