It wouldn’t be wrong to say that we live in an ‘Appy World’ with several mobile applications available to manage our day-to-day activities. With rapidly evolving technology, managing food allergies has become easier. There are several apps that tell you what is in your food, show you how to administer epinephrine, and identify safe food options when you’re traveling or away from home. Here are our top five picks for the best food allergy apps:
