About ContentChecked Holdings, Inc.
ContentChecked has created a revolutionary marketplace for people with dietary restrictions and the organizations who cater to them by creating and introducing the ContentChecked, MigraineChecked and SugarChecked smartphone applications to the market. ContentChecked and MigraineChecked applications are the first applications with comprehensive and accurate content information, and in-depth allergen and migraine definitions for most U.S. food products. SugarChecked gives consumers the ability to scan the barcodes of grocery store products and determine what kind of sugars are contained within. This enables the applications to meet the needs of millions of people in the United States. As a result, ContentChecked has created a pivotal way for food producers to, at the point of purchase, be able to showcase their products to consumers who are actively seeking them.
Designed for use by those who suffer from food allergies, dietary intolerances, migraines and chronic headaches, ContentChecked and MigraineChecked applications have reached wide adoption levels. In the U.S. alone there are 15 million people who suffer from food allergies and 38 million from migraine and chronic headaches. The food allergy market currently has an estimated value of $6 billion USD. Both applications give the ability to scan a product's bar code and determine if it is safe for consumption, and if not the apps will recommend a suitable alternative per the user's specific dietary profile.
SugarChecked identifies four main types of sugars that consumers can avoid, including added sugars, artificial sweeteners, natural low-calorie sweeteners and sugar alcohols. This application is an easy shopping tool for consumers to decipher often-misleading food labels, and receive recommendations for healthier alternative products as they shop in real time.
ContentChecked has created a robust database of allergens, migraine triggers, and food ingredients that directly correlate with food allergies, intolerances, migraines and chronic headaches. There are currently hundreds of thousands of products in its database that is updated regularly. ContentChecked's applications are highly scalable and can expand into new geographic areas and product categories with limited modifications and investment.
