WHO WE ARE
Fuelbetter is startup with a mission to help all people live longer, healthier, happier lives by making it easier for them make "nutritionally on target" food & drink choices every meal.
To this end, our new mobile app is structured as a foodtracking app, like MyFitnessPal (MFP), WeightWatchers, Noom, LoseIt, LifeSum, etc. But Fuelbetter adds two new powerful features which enable us to address previously untapped market potential. First, Fuelbetter tracks not only calories — it also over 200 different macronutrient fractions, vitamins, minerals, most key phytonutrients, climate impact (co2 per 100g), and additives. Second, our proprietary "recommendation engine" tells you exactly what to eat/drink to correct any dietary gap or excess. Don't like the recommendation? Just swipe left and get another recommendation that's also nutritionally on-target. Once you find what you like, the app populates your food diary for you. All the benefits for a food tracking app -- but without the work of actually tracking.
To achieve this, we first had to develop algorithms which accurately estimate the weight of each ingredient in the universe of packaged foods, effectively reverse-engineering every packaged food out there — which we did. And then we had to find a partner who had the largest, most accurate database of packaged foods in the world — which we did. So now, we have a proprietary database — the world's first — with an accurate, detailed nutrient profile of every food.
Join us, and you'll be taking poll-position to bring this revolutionary technology to market.
