This is a century where we all lead a very busy life. We don’t have time to even eat on properly, tracking the food is a far away tale. But going by the advantages of this century, there are various apps that have the superpower to guide us without taking much of our time as well. Let’s have a look at all those food apps that will help you track your food and you won’t miss your mother anymore!

3. True Food
The app lists ‘green’ foods (which do not contain modified ingredients) and ‘red’ foods (which do) so that we can differentiate between the adulterated and unadulterated foods. There is a tab where on clicking on it you can just register a complaint against these fraud companies and help reduce such productions as well. You can also locate stores that refuse to carry anything with GMOs.

Do you remember how your mother used to detect a raw watermelon just by looking at the fruit?

The app also gives such valuable storage tips as not to wash strawberries until you’re ready to eat them.
