Why should I use bitewell’s digital food?
Because blanket nutrition advice just doesn’t work. Think about it: You wouldn’t treat diabetes the same way you’d treat arthritis, would you? Exactly. It’s the same with food as food IS medicine.

How do you personalize the digital food farmacy?
Great question. We use this thing called the FoodHealth Score (FHS), which is our proprietary metric that helps people quickly identify the best foods for them. Here’s how it works in practice: once you sign up for bitewell’s digital food farmacy, you’ll be prompted to fill out the assessment where you’ll tell us about your health condition(s), dietary preferences, and goals. From there, we assign every food in our database a FHS based on what you shared and curate an online market that only shows foods that score a high FHS, i.e. only foods that work best for your body.
Can I buy food directly from the digital food farmacy?
Yes, members of the farmacy can buy anything they see on their screen – be it prepared foods, grocery store, meal kits, and more.
