Thanks for this beautiful article! It was really interesting to read. But how do you estimate what food is in the photo?

That is a really interesting question Ivan! I should have explained that feature with more details. We rely on an external API. We can use the user's front camera to read product's barcode and send a request to the API which answer with information about ingredients, allergens, etc ...
I hope that answered your question 😇
