Review: “A pioneering app that has achieved success in its first months. This guide to improve the quality of life for the gluten intolerant lets you select and buy food every day, choose a hotel or restaurant with a menu adapted. It provides instant information, with photographs, facts about allergens, ingredients and nutritional details. “This is a very simple and basic app, very direct, because we have tried to put ourselves in the shoes of those who need the information”, says the creator, Angel Fernandez, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Alcala de Henares. Gluten intolerance is diagnosed in 1% of the population, and 450,000 people in our country are estimated to be affected.”

Review: “In an attempt to make life easier for coeliacs, ACM (collaborating with the Equalter company) has developed an app called ‘mobiCeliac’. With one click, the user can find a complete guide to gluten-free foods, continuously updated and filtered by food category, brands and products. The app lists ‘gluten-free’ restaurants and hotels in Spain. Another feature that makes this app useful is the addition of a scanner, that can detect, through the bar code, if a product does not contain gluten.”
