Additive Alert App

June 26, 2013

Have you downloaded the Additive Alert App?

This simple mobile app is so easy to use. It allows you to search for Australian and New Zealand food additives – by number AND name!

The additive data has been compiled from Additive Alert: Your Guide to Safer Shopping written by Julie Eady. The app was developed by Patrick Allwood. Patrick initially developed the Android version of the app to run only on his phone and his wife’s phone and had no intention for it to be used by anyone else – however he received so much interest from family and friends, that he approached Julie for permission to use her data and brand name and release the app to the public. Julie agreed on the condition that the app be free of charge.

Patrick was more than happy to agree as Julie’s book helped him to shake the worst of his fibromyalgia symptoms that he had been living with for the past fifteen years!

Thanks Patrick for your work on this App! It is such a great resource to compliment to the book! Patrick will be making a few changes – including my request of including the Wallet Card Numbers so that you can prioritise which additives you want to avoid first.

Would love to hear your feedback!!

Hello, my sister recommend I download the app, however the link is not working for iPhone and when I searched in the apple store for additive alert it does not show. Has the app been removed? I would love to download!

Hi, it still appears to be down :( Might be good if you could recommend any of the other currently available additive apps? Cheers.

I can’t get the app. It is not in App Store and the link isn’t working. Is it still available? If not what is the best alternative. I have upgraded my phone and can’t survive without out this app, it rules my shopping cart.

Hello Louise

I still cant re-download the app anymore :-(

I have changed iphones & when I try to find the app in the app store it does not exist.

Your app is the only one that I like to refer to when shopping!

Any update on when it will be available again

Hi Debbie
I hear your pain!! At this stage we would have to recreate the entire app and the cost is quite prohibitive. Chemical Maze is the one I’d suggest exploring at this stage.

Hi Louise
Oh what a shame!! Sorry to hear that. I wish we could fund you somehow through gofundme or something like that, your app is like no other.

I guess ill just have to hold on to my old phone then & use the app that way ha ha

If you end up getting it up & running again please let us all know. In the meantime I have purchased your book!

All the best :-)

Hello! The only other additive app I recommend and have reviewed thoroughly is Chemical Maze by Bill Statham, the author of The Chemical Maze.

The downside is it does have a cost associated with it. The bonus is though, it includes food chemicals and beauty product chemicals!!
