  1. Related products and non-unique barcodes

    These are several points to note and suggestions to handle them:

    1) Nutrition facts and Barcodes aren't unique so there's a need to not make a barcode as an unique identificator of the product. Or, provide support for multiple products with same barcode.

    2) Barcodes vary from one country to another. Even if it's the same product, barcodes may vary (Because the barcode format, etc). My suggestion is trying to add links to the same product even if they are in different countries.

    3) Enhance search with filters. Many people wants to look for products that keep them healthier. So,…

  2. Products in Categories have to show the NOVA score besides the Nutri score.

    I would like the app when browsing Categories to show the NOVA score besides the Nutri score. NOVA is more important to me. Now I have to click at the individual producs in a categorie to see NOVA.

  3. Dangerousness of food additives

    Not all food additives are good for your health. There has been an increase in inflammatory bowel disease since the 1950s and 1960s, which corresponds to the increase in the use of food additives in prepared foods. The Good to Know website gives a classification and some are to be avoided. Perhaps it would be possible to add a dot (green/orange/red/black) according to these additives.

  5. allow different products with the same barcode

    Barcode 22147356 is used for two similar but different products. One is a nut mix with chocolate, one is a nut mix with cranberries. Ingredients and Nutrition facts are not the same for both products. Just the price is the same. This would only need to apply to EAN barcodes starting with 2, as the 2xx prefix is for retailer internal use.

  7. Personal Black- and whitelist for ingredients

    In addition to the allergy warning it would be great to would great to extend the feature to incompatibilities (phosphates / e450 - e452 for example).
    Or to go further and add a great feature: deposit your own black and whitelist for ingredients so that the app helps you which product fits to your needs.
    In addition, there could be a smart statistic info which could show, which manufacturer tends to use the entries on the blacklist or whitelist in his products.

  8. Is it possible to select only products that are vegan? I would like a tick box for vegetarian or vegan or glutenfree or any other diets.

    Make it easier for people with allegies or food preferences (vegan or so) to find products that are OK for them in a simple way

  10. Better handling of allergens

    Your current method of supporting allergens is to highlight them in the ingredient list. This works for some allergens, but not others.

    For example, Gluten is contained in barley malt, a common ingredient in cereals (like rice krispies). There's no current way to highlight that this ingredient contains gluten. (Note: I consider this separate from may contain traces of gluten... its not a trace, its an actual listed ingredient, it just so happens to not be called 'gluten' in the ingredient list).

    This site would be extremely helpful for those with allergies, if you were somehow able to 'check' down…

  11. getting started guide

    i can't find a guide what i should do to contribute.

    i installed the app, registered an account, log in, scan a product and uploaded pictures. there is no information how to chose the categorie and what categories are used. there should be autocomplete in these fields and the ingredients should get OCRd from the pictures.

  15. Set up a regular forum for discussing issues, rules etc.

    Have you thought about the possibility to set up a regular forum, so people can interact more directly about different issues? Also, it can be useful to discuss some rules that we can follow. For example, I am thinking to come up with some naming convention for standarize the name of the products. For example the same product can appear as cous-cous, cus-cus, cuscús, ..., tahine, tahin, tajín, ... The searching engine won't return you the correct items if every product is named with a different spelling. (suggestion from Javichu)

  16. Calculating statistics: do I buy healthy food?

    Can we do such a system:

    I register on the Carrefour website giving my credit card number. When shopping at Carrefour I pay using that credit card. By logging into Carrefour's account, I can check the list of purchased products for each of my purchases.

    After log in to the Open Food Facts web page it downloads purchase history from my Carrefour account then it calculates total mass of saturated fats and sugars I bought in the last 12 months. On this basis Open Food Facts shows information whether I buy healthy food or not. In addition, I would like…

  17. usda-ndb-import ingredients shouldn't be truncated at 255 characters

    It looks like ingredients imported by usda-ndb-import are truncated to 255 characters. Some examples:
    https://us.openfoodfacts.org/product/0041498179915/ice-cream-bar-sundae-shoppe
    https://us.openfoodfacts.org/product/0021130480180/caribbean-jerk-marinade-signature-select

    It would be really nice if the full ingredients list were imported.

  18. Allergens subsection

    How if we can create a subsection where we can introduce the allergens that the food possibly contais? It could be really useful for celiac people or lactose intolerant (among others).
    Take in consideration, thanks and salute to the community!

  19. Highlight Lists

    Several suggestions on this forum are asking for some target highlighting functionality: To highlight allergens, identify non-Vegan foods, so on...

    I would like to propose a generic solution to all of these: highlight lists. Users create/modify downloadable lists of ingredients to be highlighted. For example, a user could create a highlight list for "Gluten" which contains ingredients: "Wheat, Barley, Rye, Oats, ...". Then, another user can download the list and select to highlight all "Gluten" ingredients as green. Users individually select which highlight lists they want to show for their own screen only.

    Users can then select to highlight whatever…

  20. Please can you do a pack with eight rashes, why seven, if I make bacon sandwich for the two I'm one short.

    If I make a bacon sandwich for two, I put two rashes of bacon on each bread bun, we have two sandwiches each, but then I'm one short because you only do a pack of seven rashes, why ?
