Intelligent food suggestions to fill your nutrition gaps

Wholesome Pro not only calculates your daily nutrition, it also suggests foods to eat to fill nutrition gaps. For example, if you didn’t get enough iron and protein for breakfast or lunch, it will find foods rich in both for dinner. With Wholesome Pro you can optimize your diet and get the most out of what you eat.


With 80+ nutrients, Wholesome Pro has the most comprehensive nutrient database available for tracking, including macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, and omega 3s. Easily identify gaps in your nutrition and get whole food suggestions to improve your diet. See how you're trending over time with the 7 day and 14 day view. Wholesome Pro also warns you when you’ve had too much sugar, fat, or sodium.

Wholesome Pro syncs with Health Kit and Apple health app.


You can also track multiple types of Omega 3's, including: a-Linoleic Acid (ALA), EPA, DHA, abd DPA. Wholesome also tracks Linoleic Acid, an Omega 6.


We spent hundreds of hours collecting scientifically-sourced data for 40 antioxidants including: beta-Carotene, alpha-Carotene, Brta-Cryptoxanthin, Lycopene, Lutein, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Manganese, Selenium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Curcumin. Wholesome not only tracks these nutrients but also explains why they are important to your health. You won't find this anywhere else!


With just one-click you can track an entire recipe using Wholesome Pro. You can track any recipe in the app including: your own recipes, your friends' recipes, or recipes from the community. 


Did you know that women are recommended to have twice as much iron as men and pregnant women need three times as much? Just set your profile and the app will take all of these factors into account according to the USDA guidelines. Want to get extra protein or set your sodium goal lower? You can customize your own nutrient targets within settings.

In the 'tips' section of any food page you can learn how to select and prepare whole foods for the most nutrition. For example, did you know it's best to chop garlic and let it sit for 5 minutes so that enzymes can get activated that bring out the most nutrition? The tips section also includes information on whether or not to buy organic and pesticide risk. Here's an example for red cabbage:


Simply set your profile as vegetarian and the app will remove the appropriate animal products. 


Wholesome is a fantastic tool for tracking your nutrition while pregnant or while trying to conceive. Folate (also commonly known by the synthetic form 'folic acid'), is a critical nutrient to consume while pregnant as it reduces the risk of neural tube defects in infants. With Wholesome Pro, you can get it directly from whole foods and ensure you're getting enough. Just set your profile to pregnant, and your goals will adjust allowing you to track toward the USDA recommended intake levels. For example, an adult woman is recommended to have 400mcg of folate per day, while a pregnant woman needs to get 600mcg. If set to pregnant, Wholesome will auto-adjust your goal to 600mcg and all you have to do is track until you reach 100% for the day. No guesswork!


Wholesome supports ages 1 and older but at this time only allows you to track one profile per device. If you do decide to track for your child, it is important to change your profile settings so that the recommended goals are set appropriately.


Wholesome's database started with 500 whole foods and has grown to over 20,000 in just a few months. Hundreds of foods are being added daily. You can find all of these foods within search.


Wholesome Pro allows you to know that you are getting all the nutrients that your body needs through whole foods. It also allows you to create your own recipes to maximize your nutrition. For example, Alice used Wholesome to construct this nutrient packed dinner:

"I wanted an app that wasn't for dieting but simply telling me if I was getting enough protein and vitamins. This app is exactly that."- Mobejo
"It sure does make you conscious of what you eat, as a food diary would, but no nagging about diet, lose weight, etc, which is a problem with other apps. As with most Americans, I'm usually too high in sodium, sometimes protein which was a surprise, not enough fruit, vegetables. The benefits convince you how great they are for you, so it motivates you to try to eat more of the good things!" - Jetta375
"Great app. I'm vegetarian so this app helps me see what I'm missing, and keep track of my daily nutrition" -  
"You can set your own sugar goal (as a specific amount and a percentage of your daily food intake) and see at which rate you are reaching it with every meal (eg: after eating fruit salad, your percentage of sugar intake might get quite close to your sugar limit, meaning that for the rest of the day, you should remain careful!) Anyway, great app! 5 stars!" - UpInTheSky

"Great app to really break down what you eat instead of just filling in calorie Count. This app will take the mystery Out of eating right and whether or not You need supplements.

Good to show your doctor" - Deepti

"Way more flexible for those of us that don't eat a ton of processed or branded foods. Takes an eye for design and adds an ease of use that's unparalleled by those free apps that focus on crowd sourced information. I'm currently using it to track my toddlers vitamin intake and love it! It'll work for your purposes as well, I'm sure." - TheJayRay
