How to use the nutrition sliders
When a slider is set all the way to the left, it means that you are choosing not to accept any of that nutritional element in your food.
For example, NO fat, NO sugar, NO salt.
If you leave them set to the left, a scan result will almost always give a RED (not meeting your criteria) warning.
As you move the sliders you’ll see a little box with a number in it that changes colour. THIS IS A HEALTHY LEVEL GUIDE for you.
Our nutrition experts are trying to give you some help with what the right levels of each element are to be eating.
The number in the little box (that changes colour!) is the amount of that element that you’re setting as acceptable per 100g of food selected. Don’t worry about calculating it out – that’s what we do. So if you choose a product that weighs – for example – 500g, FoodAdvisr works out based on the 100g setting, and the totals on the label, whether it meets your requirements or not.
And you get a traffic light result!
