Diet-Disease Reference @ FLExPHD

April 28, 2023

We made it into the Top 40 of the FLExPHD competition with our app Diet-Disease Reference, as part of Pantrypoints Health.

Diet-Disease Reference

Diet-Disease Reference is a food reference app that promotes the use of food for medicine and nutrition, as ’nutraceuticals'.

It aims to drive demand for a planetary health diet which is composed mostly of plant-based food. Our main innovations are:

  • the linking of diseases to nutrients and to the food that has them
  • the use of machine learning to make adding content faster

The linking of diseases to nutrients uses the paradigm of alternative medicine, namely:

  • Ayurveda
  • Chinese medicine
  • Naturopathy
  • Traditional Philippine medicine
