New online tool

searches to products

by Sifter to shop instore
at their local grocer.
Chief Nutrition Officer
Judy Seybold worked
with developers to align
Sifter's technology with
the nutrition guidance
given by doctors and
dietitians for a wide
variety of health
conditions.
" As a dietitian, I'm
incredibly proud of the
precision and usefulness
of Sifter, " said Seybold.
" People with special
diets or food allergies are
intimidated by unfamiliar
foods and brands.
Sifter's integration with
evidence-based nutrition
recommendations helps
shoppers discover new
products with confidence
and looks at the bigger
picture-your total diet.
My hope is Sifter also will
become an important
tool for nutritionists to
use with their clients. "
