Yes, they do, but the print is too small!  Fooducate gives you a nutrition rating and points out the good and bad aspects of the product too; plus allergy warnings.

I'd love something to help me find that one last item I can never seem to find in the store.

Don't packaged foods already have the ingredients and nutritional info listed?

I can see manufacturers providing stores with the antennaes in order to improve sales of their products.  But I would not be a candidate for the app.  I am a rim shopper, and you can't miss the fresh meats, fresh veggies, and fresh dairy.  I don't go down the aisles and buy stuff in packages, boxes, cans, and kits.  My daughter would totally love this.  She's very phone-app oriented and is currently having problems navigating our local Kroger, which is being remodeled.  They did the pharmacy, produce, meats, and dairy first, so I have all I need.  She, on the other hand, is really battling the packaged food aisles that are moved around daily.  

I do have an app called Fooducate that reads barcodes and gives you the ingredients and nutritional info on packaged foods.  It's handy from time to time, on the rare occasions that I buy something in a package.  

Thanks for sharing, and welcome to the board!
