New App Aids With Food Allergies

An online project created by students at the University of Michigan could make life easier for people with food allergies and special diets.

The “Edible Project app” would help people with diet restrictions find cuisine they can enjoy without worrying about allergies or ingredients. The free app focuses allows users to search by food item, diet or price using criteria like milk allergies or vegetarian and vegan diets.

The app developers are computer software students at the University of Michigan. It’s currently focused in the Ann Arbor area, but could be expanded.
