The idea for an ingredients reader came about when I thought about how often I read ingredients labels as a vegan and the amount of times I misread the label, only to find out after I had already bought the product.

After discovering that there did not seem to be any good apps on iOS/Android/GitHub that did this exact thing, I believed it would be an excellent app idea to try out at the Platterz Hackathon, where the theme was food-related.
