You can learn, track and share information about more than 50,000 ingredient labels, and join a growing community of people opening their eyes to identifying what it is we are eating, and feeding our families.

Check it out: http://www.foodfacts.com

It is inspiring to see more and more people and networks taking interest and action in the proper labeling of products... and a serious concern about what is really in the our food! I've personally ensured to tag all of the labels I've come across within my FoodFacts profile, to share what I've learned about products who fail to cover all the basics when it comes to ingredients high on the allergy / sensitivity list, and appreciate Web communities like www.foodfacts.com for providing the perfect resource to track and share my findings concerning ingredients, especially those I'm allergic to! This kind of web-surfing just may save my life someday! Thanks, Food Facts!

Hi Hope,

From your post it sounds like you're one of the proprietors of the site. It's really not good "netiquette" to go on someone else's site just to push their members to another site.

I'll leave this post up because it may indeed be a useful resource, but remind you of our clearly stated rules for this Forum:

3. No Unapproved Advertising
Members are allowed and encouraged to share information on useful products that they’ve discovered that may be helpful to this community. However, you may not post simply to promote a product, commercial event or company that you represent unless you have submitted a request to the moderator and the moderator and administrators approve that request. Without permission, such posts will be removed.

What would be good is if you told us more about who owns this site. Personally, I wouldn't be comfortable just signing up with my e-mail at that site without knowing more about the privacy policy.

It looks like you pay a fee and they make a profile of what products you can buy and recipes etc. The free tour is still under construction.

I don't know how often they update the ingredient lists. As you know, manufacturers can modify their ingredients at any time. So you really do still need to read the ingredients lists.

It seems to me that you wouldn't get mush more there than you can already get here...and for free! :D
