BOSTONFor the 10 million to 12 million Americans who have food allergies or food intolerances, dinging out can be tricky and sometimes harried experience. To help accommodate those special dietary requirements, AllergyEats has launched a free app for iPhone and Android smartphones that allows users to find allergy-friendly restaurants.
The AllergyEats app offers peer-based allergy-friendliness ratings as well as restaurants' websites, menus, directions and more, conveniently accessible from users' iPhone and Android smartphones. Users can search by city or Zip code making it even easier for busy, on-the-go families to find accommodating restaurants, whether they're researching options in advance or grabbing a last-minute meal while out and about. Users can access information for many restaurants such as menus (including gluten-free menus), allergen lists, nutrition information, certifications, web links, directions and more.
The AllergyEats app and website allows users to rate more than 600,000 restaurants nationwide. The peer ratings and feedback allow food allergic and gluten intolerant diners to quickly and easily find restaurants that will more likely cater to their special dietary requirementsand avoid the ones that won't.
"The new AllergyEats app builds off the outstanding success of the core AllergyEats website, which has a tremendousand rapidly expandingnumber of users finding and rating restaurants based on their level of food allergy-friendliness. Our new mobile app offers all of the same benefits as the original AllergyEats website, with the added convenience of portability," said Paul Antico, founder of AllergyEats. "Now, users have on-demand access to this wealth of information right at their fingertips."
