About Us

Chomp is a platform that helps you find food that's free from ingredients you want to avoid. We also check if food is compatible with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free diets. On it you can search for food, or scan a barcode, to instantly check if it's vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or if it has ingredients you want to avoid.

Chomp was created in 2018 after Peter and his wife went vegan. They were having a hard time, while grocery shopping, figuring out if the food on the shelf was vegan or not. Peter's background is in software development so he decided to come up with a solution. He developed a "diet grade" algorithm that checks each food's ingredients for ingredients that have been identified as not being compatible with certain diets.

Chomp was first launched in September of 2018 and has since checked 650,000+ foods for over 115,000 users. In February of 2020, the Chomp app was launched on iOS and Android devices.

The Chomp app makes checking food for ingredients you want to avoid easier than ever. Simply open the app and scan the barcode!

In 2019, the Chomp API was launched. The API provides detailed nutrition info, ingredients, allergens, and more for 875,000+ grocery products, branded foods, and raw ingredients from all around the world.
