Food additives are substances added to food to preserve flavor or enhance its taste and appearance.
Acceptability level for each additive depends on the characteristics of the consumer. Some additives can be considered as fully safe for most people but in some circumstances could be not advisable for other people.
As an example, many food colorings are considered harmful or dangerous for children. Others should be avoided by people suffering from asthma. Other additives are fully safe but, due to their animal origins, they should be avoided by vegetarian or vegan people.

Personal Food Additives (PFA) provides information about the safeness of food additives putting users' personal characteristics in relation with side effects of each food additive.
With PFA it is possible to define one or more user profiles describing personal characteristics and any pathologies of the users.
Matching these information with food addives characteristics and side effects PFA is able to give accurate indications to the users highlighting any contraindication specific to the selected user profile.

PFA allows searching the list of additives by E-number and by scientific and common names which identify them.
The results of search operations are presented indicating danger levels of each additive in relation with user's profile.

PFA uses its own local database cantaining information on more than 500 food additives. Hence it can work without an internet connection.
Futhermore the application allows access to several internet sites containing detailed information on food additives and related effects.
