About the solution
“It is very difficult to follow a gluten-free diet because gluten is added to many foods as a preservative or a binding agent. Paper diaries have been the most frequently used tool for self-monitoring dietary behaviours. But they aren’t the most effective. Diaries can be tedious, time-consuming and often inaccurate”, the inventor explained.
First Justine did a research, and came to the conclusion that 78% of smartphone owners in Canada don’t leave home without their phones.
“Furthermore, apps that focus on diet, food or calorie-counting are the second most commonly downloaded health and wellness apps”, she added.
The app allows the user to follow a user-friend diet and have a symptom diary. It also helps users monitor symptoms, it also assists users to follow a nutritious gluten-free diet. It lists 50 of the healthiest gluten-free foods, a seven-day nutritious gluten-free meal plan, tips on how to cook for someone with celiac disease and has functions to help plan meal plans and grocery lists.
Justine invented the application with Desiree Nielsen, a dietitian, and Darlene Higbee Clarkin, a holistic nutritionist.
The app is free and is available for iOS.
