How it works
FREE FoodMaestro App
FoodMaestro is a smart, simple and personalised app, developed in partnership with Guy’s & St Thomas' Hospital Trust. Whether you suffer from a food allergy, food intolerance, or you’re keen to learn more about foods to suit your diet, FoodMaestro puts you in control of searching, scanning and discovering safe foods for all the family.
Setup multiple profiles
Setup personalised food profiles for multiple users (up-to 10 people), select from food allergens, exclude specific ingredients or apply diet filters. For example, dairy-free, gluten-free, MEWS (milk, egg, wheat, soya free), SFED (six food elimination diet - dietitian supervision recommended), vegan etc.
Search or Scan food
Quickly scan barcodes to check if products are suitable for the food profiles you've set-up. Use our advanced features to search or browse by food category to discover new products available in UK supermarkets.
Discover new foods
The search results will show a list of food products that are suitable and safe for the selected profiles. A smiley face indicates that the product is potentially suitable, but remember its always best to also check ingredients on packaging.
Sugar filters and more
You can filter the search results by the number of teaspoons of sugar, we show sugar content by using a simple teaspoon format (1 teaspoon = 4g) per 100g/100ml. You can also sort and filter the search results by profile, category and by newly listed items. Or simply by keyword e.g. enter the name of a supermarket or brand.
View ready-made product lists, that have been compiled by our dietitians and team to give you some quick options these may include seasonal food products, dairy-free alternatives, meat-free alternatives, lactose free dairy, gluten-free options, MEWS free etc.
Create shopping lists
Add products as you go to your shopping list by searching, scanning food labels or from your list of favourites. It’s easy to share or email your shopping list with others.
The products display ingredients, nutritional information, sugar content and product notes if added by healthcare professionals. Like and share products you discover with friends or feedback comments you may have about a product.
We recommend that you always check ingredients on packaging before consumption. If in doubt, always check the label or contact the retailer or manufacturer.
