The Best in iOS Development!
Sugar Limit: The average American now consumes 175 pounds of sugar per year! That’s 46 teaspoons a day! The recommended maximum amount of daily sugar consumption is 6 to 10 teaspoons. Where is this sugar coming from? Processed foods are undeniably the culprit? You need only read some nutrition labels to discover some startling facts. We have captured nutrition label information for many popular processed foods and we encourage our users to add some of their own. You can participate by capturing a few of your favourite or local processed food items that we can add to the list. The App also computes your daily sugar consumption. The object of the App is to educate and reveal just how much and where all this sugar is coming from. We hope you learn, enjoy and participate.
The app is free (but has an ad on one screen). Participate by entering a few items if you wish. Send us your feedback and ideas. We would love to hear from people concerned about the sugar content in their diet. Education is key. You just may learn a few things about this serious problem effecting so many people. Enjoy a look into SugarLimit.
