Use this site as a reference, but do not solely rely on its information. You should always see your doctor and check food labels to verify food diets and to avoid of allergenic foods.
The goal of the site is to help you obtain food lists more easily and more up-to-date. You are responsible to always read labels! However, not all manufactures list all ingredients on the labels. You alone are responsible for verifying with manufacturers and distributors the accuracy of the FoodB database information. Use this list with caution due to the fact that manufacturers change their ingredients and production methods without warning. Also a member of the site can make a mistake.
We want no one hurt from these lists, so take these warnings seriously. We wish our site to be as accurate as possible and improve each year. Therefore, this website cannot guarantee that the list of foods identified as free from glutens, sugars, corn, nuts, soy, yeast, milk (casein), egg, fish, and preservatives, etc.
If a member believes that the manufacturing process and or ingredients have changed in any database product, he or she is encouraged to verify the change and then make it to the database. That is what is great and bad about this food database at the same time - users may change errors imediately online. If a user complains about wrong information, then why didn't he or she just change it. With the 300,000 plus food recipes in just the U.S. there is no way every food item can be verified, without spending hundreds of millions of dollars. This food database should help save users a lot of time. Nonmembers entering their email addresses on this site may receive temporary membership access and emails.
If a member believes that the manufacturing process and or ingredients have changed in any database product or incorrectly entered, he or she is encouraged to verify the change and then make it to the database. Thanks.
