Using the FARE powered by Sifter tool for food allergy needs

Sifter knows shopping with food allergies can be difficult and time-consuming. Juggling multiple food allergy needs, plus any other dietary or health needs you may have, can feel like an impossible task. The FARE powered by Sifter tool can help make grocery shopping for those with food allergies a bit easier.

  • Sift through foods by 12 food allergy filters, including top 9 allergens plus mammalian meat/red meat, mustard, and corn.
  • Ingredient exclusions in combination with other health or dietary needs.
  • Registered Dietitian Nutritionist validated algorithm that can help narrow down acceptable food choices in the grocery store or ordering online.

FARE does not endorse the suggested diets and food products obtained by using the Sifter platform. The FARE powered by Sifter tool is not a replacement for healthcare, and you should make sure to read product labels and contact manufacturers as needed before purchasing and consuming food products.

Woman shopping with Sifter

For the first time, you can create your own personal diet, using any combination of hundreds of diet filters:

  • Food allergens (top 9 food allergens, mammalian/red meat, mustard, corn) and ingredient concerns (gluten, sulfites, lactose)
  • Health diets (celiac, diabetes, FODMAP, heart and blood pressure health, etc.)
  • Medications (antibiotics, steroids, MAOIs, etc.)
  • Lifestyle diets (keto, paleo, vegan, Mediterranean, kosher, etc.)
  • Responsible practices (grassfed, non-GMO, fair trade, etc.)

Once you have selected your filters, Sifter technology "sifts" through thousands of product ingredients, food allergen information, and nutrition facts panels to find foods—in an instant—that match your dietary and food avoidance preferences, no matter how complex. Even if you have selected multiple filters, the search result is instantaneous, accurate, and consistent. It is a first screen toward making purchase choices in-store or online.

If you prefer to shop in-store, the FARE powered by Sifter Scan By Diet™ feature deciphers product labels on the spot. Use your smartphone to scan any food or supplement barcode and learn whether the item matches the filters you have selected. Green means the product likely fits; red means it doesn't.
