The CheckWise App
The CheckWise App addresses the 41 million people with food allergies and 47 million contact allergy sufferers in Europa as well as their family members and dependents. As an intelligent shopping helper, the app creates transparency and certainty directly in the supermarket. For though the 14 most frequent allergens, as well as designations for contact allergies on cosmetics (INCI's) and care products, must be declared on packaging throughout Europe, the different names and terms often cause confusion. With one scan, the CheckWise App can determine which allergens are contained in a certain food and inform the user whether or not the product is safe for her or him - in real-time. CheckWise detects food allergens, additives (E numbers), fragrances, ingredients and sugars.
Thus the CheckWise App can help individuals but also society at large. For according to the European Allergy Foundation (ECARF) people with allergies in Europe create indirect costs (e.g. through the inability to work) of at least 142 billion euros annually.
