Microplastics are small plastic particles that can be found in the environment, including in our food. These particles can accumulate in the bodies of animals and humans and have potential health effects.
Nutri App can help users identify which foods contain microplastics and promote the consumption of foods that have been found to have lower levels of contamination, ultimately reducing the amount of microplastics consumed and potentially mitigating their negative impacts on health and the environment.
PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) can contaminate food through packaging and processing equipment, and have been linked to adverse health effects.
Our nutrition tracking app can help users identify products that contain PFAS and encourage manufacturers to use safer alternatives, ultimately reducing the presence of PFAS in the food industry and promoting a healthier food system.
