A new app could change what we eat.

A new app has come out on the app store called Sugar Rush. By scanning the barcode on a food item, it will tell you the natural and added sugars that are in that food. The one downside of the app is that it measures in teaspoons instead of measuring in grams.

Also, if you shake your device it will search for a random food item almost instantly. This could be useful beacause if you were curious about sugars in foods, then learning is just one shake away.

After testing this app we have noticed a slight difference in the amount of sugar shown on the app versus shown on the label, but if you want to quickly find the rough amount, it is a great tool to use.
