About Content Checked Holdings, Inc.

Content Checked Holdings, Inc. (www.contentchecked.com) has created a revolutionary marketplace for people with dietary restrictions and the organizations who cater to them by creating and introducing the ContentChecked, MigraineChecked and SugarChecked smartphone applications. ContentChecked and MigraineChecked are the first applications with comprehensive and accurate content information, and in-depth allergen and migraine definitions for over 70% of conventional U.S. food products.

Each app gives consumers the ability to scan a product's bar code and determine if it is safe for consumption based on their allergy settings. The apps will recommend a suitable alternative if a product does contain one or more of a user's allergens. This enables the applications to meet the needs of millions of people in the U.S. In the U.S. alone, there are more than 15 million people who suffer from food allergies and 38 million people who suffer from migraines and chronic headaches. The food allergy and intolerances market has been valued at approximately US$13 billion in 2015. As a result, the Company has created a pivotal way for food manufacturers and producers to showcase their products to consumers who are actively seeking them at the point of purchase.

The Company has created a robust database of allergens, migraine triggers and food ingredients that directly correlate with food allergies, intolerances, migraines and chronic headaches. There are currently hundreds of thousands of products in its database, updated regularly. All applications serve as easy shopping tools for consumers to decipher often misleading food labels and receive recommendations for healthier alternative products as they shop in real time. The Company's mission is to offer fast, reliable and efficient mobile apps that help consumers make more informed purchasing decisions and live healthier lives in accordance to their dietary preferences.
