I have an iPhone and I love it. But recently I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease which means I need to avoid any foods that have gluten (wheat, rye, barley). It’s tricky and very time consuming to navigate a grocery store now, with all of the hidden sources of gluten in processed foods. Did you know that “brown rice syrup” can contain wheat? But a company called MidLifeCrisisApps.com has come out with an iPhone app that makes my life much easier: Is That Gluten Free?
I’ve been using the “Is That Gluten Free?” iPhone app for a month now, and just upgraded to the latest version of 1.1.1. The developers are quick to answer emails with suggestions for adding new items.
Not only does it help you when you’re shopping in a grocery store, it can also help you avoid trouble when eating over at a friend’s house. Just this weekend, we were getting ready to eat dinner and the hostess asked us about some Parmesan cheese in a can. I looked at the ingredients on the can, but didn’t recognize some of the chemical names – so I just whipped out my iPhone and opened the “Is That Gluten Free?” app, and looked up the ingredients. They were fine, and the hostess was happy and the meal was stress free.
So today, I just wanted to say thanks to the folks at MidLife Crisis Apps for making this great iPhone gluten-free app that is making my life a lot easier and giving me yet another reason to love my iPhone.Jill
