Are you allergic to peanuts? Are you lactose intolerant? Does eating fish give you the hives? If you’re one of the 70 million+ people in North America who suffer from food sensitivities or food allergies, help is on the way. Today, advertising and marketing think-tank TAXI New York announced the release of FoodContentAlerts.com, a free online and mobile tool that allows you to catalog and manage the foods you eat. It’s both a web and mobile tool that you can customize for your particular food sensitivities. You can even design your own custom home page with drag-and-drop style layout elements right on the site. No only do you get toÂ control the content, you can even match up with other people who share similar profiles so you can share recipes, advice and build a community. Once you’ve got that all set up, you can access everything you create online from your mobile phone. Pretty cool. According to FoodContentAlerts.com, the site’s features include:
My Safe Foods: Allows users to create customized lists of “personally approved” foods and share them. A great way to find new recommendations for people on restricted diets.
