Sugarwise, based in Bulgaria, is the easy-to-use portable preventive solution to serious health problems such as chronic and metabolic diseases, obesity, and diabetes type 2. Sugarwise is a mobile application, which reveals the true nutritional information of processed foods to consumers. It specifies whether the food in hand is high on added sugar, on saturated fats, whether it contains harmful additives, can cause health problems, or is toddler-friendly. In addition, the application gives explanation on why certain ingredients are dangerous for the health.
