LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DietSensor, Inc., a leading developer of smart food and nutrition applications designed to fight diabetes and obesity and help improve overall fitness, today announced the launch of its DietSensor™ app for Apple iPhone®. The Android version will be announced at CES, January 5-8, 2017. DietSensor is available in the App Store now.
A new solution in the fight against diabetes and obesity
Named a CES 2016 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree, DietSensor marks the beginning of a new generation of diet and nutrition apps, integrating food sensors, primarily designed to make food counting more manageable for those suffering from diabetes or dealing with obesity. For type 1 and type 2 Diabetes, counting carbohydrates on a daily basis is critical. And for those who want or need to lose weight, DietSensor is a powerful new tool that helps by measuring total nutritional intake (what you eat) on a much more personal, and comprehensive level than ever before.
Stay on track, stay balanced
Starting with the creation of a secure, personal profile, the DietSensor app creates a unique, personalized nutritional plan, broken out by meal times, and macro nutrient intake, based on user-defined goals (for example, controlling diabetes, losing weight and so forth). Using the app, users track all macro nutrients (fats, proteins and carbohydrates) and, through the app’s proprietary onboard ‘nutritional coach,’ receive actionable advice and food or portion size recommendations, based on the historical data of the day and the goals that were set initially in the user’s profile.
The most complete and advanced food logging tool on the market
Subscribers to DietSensor’s Ultimate plan also have the option to use the pocket-sized SCiO® spectrometer, an add-on device developed by Consumer Physics that gathers information on the molecular make-up of homogenous food types, such as beef, fish, fruit, bread, milk or 80 other food types. It generates chemical and nutritional data, which is fed directly into the app via Bluetooth. No other nutritional management app offers this functionality. DietSensor can also connect to a Bluetooth digital scale, another optional device, which weighs food portions and sends data directly into the app.
Food and drink can also be logged in the app in a variety of more traditional ways. Users can access the app’s integrated nutritional database, which contains more than 600,000 items from 19 countries in 12 languages, to search for the values of any type of food. Users can also scan a product’s barcode to pull in the data, or add favorite foods to their own photo gallery, making carb counting and food logging much easier and far less tedious.
“We are excited to share the news that DietSensor for iOS is now available in the Apple app store, and we believe that it will improve the quality of life for these communities in a very meaningful way,” noted Remy Bonnasse, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, DietSensor, Inc.
“It is a dream come true for our family, our company and the thousands of friends and colleagues from the diabetes community who have been waiting for this day,” said Astrid Bonnasse, parent and co-founder, DietSensor.
