Ingredient1 Is The New App That Caters To Your Dietary Needs

As professionals living in 2015, we’re constantly on the move and can’t always take the time to find the healthiest foods. Such a conundrum is why Taryn Fixel created the Ingredient1 app. Fixel, founder and CEO of Ingredient1, created the application that is focused on providing the appropriate foods tailored to specific dietary needs or taste preferences. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also an award-winning investigative journalist, who has worked for renowned companies such as CNN and CBS. “There is incredible value to beginning your career in a larger, more established organization,” Fixel said. “I found mentorship, a range of opportunities … was a part of a team, learned to lead a team. But perhaps the biggest lesson was humility – I didn’t get to be at the top on day one.

By Brian Halweil May 7, 2015 What becomes clear when you survey the frothy, churning plains of foodtech is that things are moving wicked fast. In penning a profile of Danielle Gould for our Innovation issue, I got to do a deep-dive into the world of inventors, app developers, agtech extensionists and food hackers that Gould tracks and nurtures through her organization Food+Tech Connect. As I note in the piece, it’s a world that at times looks quite sci-fi, and sometimes even creepy.
