@haimohiuddin Thank you for sharing. To be able to loose weight he will definitely need to know exactly what he's eating and the app does just that. When eating store bought food, then you get this information on the label, but, if you're eating at home and need the same detailed information (and per serving), that's where our app comes in.

@ken_leeser Can you dive into the technology behind how this works?

@kristofertm Sure. RecipeIQ app is using OCR - optical character recognition. This technology converts images of typed or printed text into text on the app. That is what helps users to fetch all ingredients from the photos of recipes they like. Most ingredients in our database are retrieved from the FoodData Central database of U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE but we are constantly improving it, adding more and more popular foods that users submit themselves.

Thanks Kris for hunting RecipeIQ app. For the past few months, we have worked day and night, and kept ourselves from midnight snacks, to build the ideal app that can analyze any recipe and provide nutritional facts per serving. RecipeIQ was made with healthy eating in mind – our number one goal behind the app is to make healthy living an easier choice. Now the app can help you calculate your nutritional intake in terms of carbs, sugars, fats, protein, and more. This app is ideal for: ● Home cooks wanting to know exactly what they are consuming. ● Dieters watching out for healthy eating. ● Foodies ready to take their ingredient knowledge to the next level. ● Diabetics that need to track their nutritional intake. ● Parents who want to cook healthier alternatives for their children. ● & More! We hope you enjoy putting RecipeIQ to use as much as we enjoyed creating it. And don’t forget to share your thoughts with us – we’re always ready to hear!

I seriously love this app! I'm always minding my weight and being able to analyze every single recipe I create at home just gives me so much more control over my calorie intake.

@diana_m_gonzalez Thanks, that was our goal! I love cooking at home so I'm aware of how difficult it is to stick to any diet when you're cooking yourself and have no idea about the calories, fat, carbs and other nutrients that the recipes contain.

@natasa_l Yes, absolutely! You can choose between American Standard and Metric System. Just go to the app - menu on the left side and choose settings. That's it. :)

Obsessed with the app! Blows my mind how easily I can count calories in all of my meals. I especially love the part where I can take a picture of my favorite recipes from my mom's cookbook, upload them in the app and get the nutritional facts.

Accidentally stumbled upon the app, it's just a godsend! I like to workout and have always wanted to start having something handy to quickly count how much protein is in the recipes of the meals I cook. Thank you!
