'Sugar Rush' is the name of an app from Fooducate that makes it easy for consumers to see food products that have naturally occurring or added sugars. This process begins by scanning a product's barcode, which will tap into the app's database in order to reveal a breakdown on natural vs. added sugars. This information is visualized with a graphic that shows a representation of the added sugars on a white spoon and natural sugars on a green tablespoon.

This easy-to-use app is ideal for consumers who want to understand more about the products they may want to eat or drink, especially when nutritional labels may lack this information on sugar.

In recent years, consumers have come to know sugar as the "enemy" and have become more aware of recognizing its presence in pre-packaged food and drink products.
