Quote: Avoid fruits and nuts. You are what you eat.
Individuals with various types of food allergies or a food intolerance can find a wealth of information and reviews about a restaurant online, but can they from find it on their cell phone or mobile device? This may not be enough data for those trying to find a restaurant that truly caters to a specific allergy or food issue such as those with Celiac disease, Gluten intolerance, or a vegetarian trying to find a place to eat out that truly accommodate these issues - from a mobile device. Or is there an mobile App for this?
Note: The 4 Classes of Vegetarians:
1. True Vegetarians- Will eat nothing from an animal, cooked or processed.
2.Lacto-Vegetarians- Will eat dairy products.
3.Ovo-Vegetarians- The only animal product allowed to eat is eggs.
4. Pesco-Vegetarians-Will not eat red meat, but will eat fish, chicken, eggs and dairy products.
There are numerous reviews and various websites where someone is giving 4 out of 5 stars to a particular restaurant. This is not enough information to make a informed decision as to whether or not they should dine at a particular restaurant or if it is truly allergen-safe.
Note: Eight foods account for 90 percent of all food-allergic reactions in the U.S.: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts (e.g., walnuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans), wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish.
First and foremost there's some questions that someone with say, Gluten intolerance needs to know. A review on a website about a particular restaurant simply may not be enough data for someone trying to find a restaurant that caters to their needs. A restaurant may state or claim they consider dietary restrictions for those with gluten intolerance or provide vegetarian menus etc. But if a restaurant is truly serious about food allergens keep in mind they will have a list of ingredients in their dishes made available to be seen by customers.
Sadly allot of times the staff members may not be able to answer questions accurately or have enough details about the food, kitchen, etc to provide someone with the greater details in regards to the considerations for a particular food allergy. Finding a restaurant that can truly cater to a food allergy can be exhausting and take away from the experience to dine out. Sometimes someone with auto immune disease, gluten intolerance, Celiac disease etc, may not necessarily know ALL the appropriate questions to ask etc. Okay, so where is a mobile App that can assist with this?
Note: There is no cure for food allergies. Strict avoidance of food allergens and early recognition and management of allergic reactions to food are important measures to prevent serious health consequences.
Well there is a mobile App that has actually done the research for you. Eatfindr is a great mobile app where the developers and co-founders have actually taken the time to research this information, ask the right questions, and provide a list of restaurants that truly cater to those with various food allergies. This is great tool to find a place to dine quickly - all from the palm of your hand.
Note: Did you know that if someone has food a allergy, he or she is more likely to have asthma or eczema.
The developers at Eatfindr has researched ingredients in specific restaurant menus including sauces, dressings, how the food is prepared, cooking utensils used, how dishes are cleaned etc. These details are incredibly important. Example, someone with gluten intolerance can eat a meal that is Gluten Intolerant, but yet the meal could be overloaded with sesame, soy, or corn. This may be okay once in awhile, but say you eat this frequently your body could actually create a weird reaction where you feel you have eaten Gluten anyways. These are details this wonderful mobile App has taken into consideration for you.
Note: Even trace amounts of a food allergen can cause a reaction.
