NHS Food Scanner

You open the NHS Food Scanner app on your phone and then point your smartphone camera at the barcode of a food or drink. The app will show you how much sugar, saturated fat and salt per pack, 100 grams, liquid millilitre, or portion of that food or drink.

With some smartphones, you can use augmented reality (AR) to see a 3D picture of the sugar, fat and salt. The app suggests a smart food swap for you if you want a food or drink with less sugar, fat or salt.
