Wellest now lets you create and define ingredients and use them in the same way you would an ingredient from the Wellest database. You can use this to open up a new world of meal solutions:

• Barcode not found? Add an item that isn’t in the Wellest database

• Wondering how much of favorite lasagna to eat? Create an ingredient with the nutrition per slice

• Eating out and want to know which of your favorite items fit your macros? Add them to your ingredients and Wellest can assemble a meal for you

• See an error in an ingredient? Add your own version with corrected information

We also removed restrictions when selecting recipes from recipe search and added new recipes to the database. Explore the list and Wellest will let you know which options match perfectly and which don’t meet your targets, but choose anything that catches your eye.

Check out the improvements in detail below and reach out to us via in-app chat to let us know what you think.
