SugAR Poke demo App 
Concerned about added sugar in your food? There's an app for that.
 
 
 

What is SugAR Poke?

SugAR Poke is the first FREE app to use AR, augmented reality, to show how much added sugar is hidden in a product. 

SugAR Poke makes it easy to understand how much sugar is in the food you buy. It features easy-to-understand green and black labels on the front of the package. It also tells you how much in teaspoons, not confusing grams! And, because the serving sizes that companies propose are both unrealistic and misleading, SugAR Poke gives you the sugar content for the whole package.

Why check for added sugar?

Front labels don't indicate how much sugar has been added to the products. Thus, we often don't realize how much sugar we really are consuming.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hidden & Added
     
Unlike what many expect, 50% of our added sugar consumption comes from savory foods , not sweets or beverages.
 
Added Sugar in Infant Formula
  
Some of the most popular infant formula products have less lactose and larger amounts of sugar - as much as 61 teaspoons in 1 box of formula.
 
Tricked by the Diets
      
Surprisingly, many gluten-free, fat-free, and organic products can have significantly more added sugar than the regular option.
 
 
A Public Health Emergency
 
Added sugar consumption is directly correlated with  heart disease , obesity, and Type 2 diabetes.
