TOPIC: How to set up avoid list?

How to set up avoid list? 1 year, 5 months ago #52

It says you can set up an 'avoid' list of ingredients, and then it will tell you what products contain those ingredients. How do you set up the avoid list? I cannot find it on the site.

Ah ok found it, it was hidden: www.foodfacts.com/my-tools/my-allergies

Ah ok that was fun. I put corn syrup and the few dozen various types of corn syrup it came up with into my avoid list. Now when I go to breakfast foods, a good 95% of them are marked 'avoid'. Oh no what am I going to eat for breakfast?!?!

Its under Tools in the Allergies tab. I can see how its kinda hidden thanks to your input we'll be sure to make it easier to find!

Great thank you. I really like the 'avoid' tool.

Hm interesting, I did not know/notice when I entered my home address and other 'required' contact information, that there was the little 'privacy' selector over to the right. By default they are all set to public. I imagine many people might have entered their home address because it was 'required' without realizing that by default anyone can then view it in the profiles.

Sorry for the delayed response the storm hit us very hard here in New Jersey. Yes all profiles are automatically put as public. The privacy icon is actually used by a lot of our members.
