Our pitch:

Half of American adults have one or more preventable, diet-related chronic disease. Our first market, Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) patients, need a life-style change in their entire's family's nutrition to be able to sustain a healthy diet in the long term. Today, they lack the right tools to be empowered and educated on how to make daily nutrition choices for their family.  This is a problem for providers and payers too, as they struggle to make interventions  between patient’s visits to the doctor. 

Our technology educates consumers at every food purchase. We do this by asking them to take pictures of their grocery receipts and we turn them into nutrition information, recommendations, and goals. Our approach moves away from the “meal-logging” mentality, as it’s both time-consuming and not long-lasting. A permanent diet change depends in adjusting the entire family’s habits. For providers, we enable them to monitor and proactively intervene patient's nutrition in between hospital visits.  

We are working with a number of partners, such as health care providers, grocery stores, government, insurance, among other institutions to make this vision a reality.
