Dimple: Idea Draft

For my final, I would like to propose an app that scans and lets you know what is in your food. The scanner can determine the sugar content, vitamins and minerals in a particular food item. It could also analyze and provide a breakdown of ingredients used. This will be helpful for people who have allergic reactions from a particular ingredient (such as nuts, gluten, aspartame). The target users are people with food allergies, people who follow strict diets, people with health concerns. This app will help people change their eating habits.
