Android: FoodSwitch has been a popular iOS app since its launch in January, as it's one of the few nutrition-centred apps which can actually read Australian barcodes from supermarket products. It's now available for Android as well, making it easy to track what you're eating and its salt and fat content.
The Android launch coincides with a World Salt Awareness Week campaign to get Australians to reduce their daily salt intake. The George Institute suggests that if the average Australian dropped their salt intake from 9000 milligrams a day to the recommended 5000 milligrams, risk of stroke would drop by 25 per cent. (You can aim much lower with salt — when I did the Mastercheap project, I set myself a 1500 milligrams a day limit.) Much of our salt intake comes from processed products, so checking them out before you buy can help a lot.
FoodSwitch is a free download from the Android market.
