A New Way to Shop!

What is Scan By Diet? Scan By Diet is a product barcode scanner that reads the product and nutrition label to identify which foods are right for you. You can set filters for lifestyle, allergies and health conditions to align with your dietary needs and preferences.

How do I use it? It’s quick and easy! Open The Fresh Market app on your smartphone, click on Scan By Diet and allow access to your camera. Add the filters that are important to you. There are dozens of options to choose from, including:

  • Allergens, e.g., nuts, gluten, fish, dairy
  • Health diets, e.g., celiac, diabetes, heart health
  • Lifestyle diets, e.g., keto, paleo and vegan
  • Ingredient exclusions, e.g., aspartame, MSG, and red dye

Use your phone’s camera to scan product barcodes. A green check will show when the product matches your filters. A red X will appear if the product doesn't match your filters, along with alternative products in the grocery aisle that do match your diet. Watch this video to see how it works.

Where can I use this in the store? Scan any packaged food label like breakfast cereal, canned goods and soups, cookies and snacks, frozen foods, grains, and pasta, etc.

How do I know it’s accurate? We understand that trust and accuracy are key! The data, algorithms, and technology behind your scanned results are powered by nutrition-based technology with a FoodMed Certification from the Validation Institute. Scannable food products are analyzed by the technology’s extensive and comprehensive quality control process, which was developed by credentialed nutrition professionals. But it is important to note that Scan By Diet technology is not a replacement for healthcare.

What if my product is not found? If Scan by Diet does not find the product you have scanned, please review the ingredients and nutritional information on the package to ascertain whether the item is right for you.

Why is The Fresh Market offering this shopping tool? Reading labels on everything you buy is tedious and time consuming. Scan By Diet helps assess foods suited to your unique diet needs, quickly and efficiently. It’s also a wonderful way to discover new foods, too.
