GLP-1 medications like Ozempic and Wegovy are highly effective therapies for type 2 diabetes and weight loss, but diet quality may suffer due to lack of appetite. Sifter's Food as Medicine platform offers tech-driven tools that teach your patients to select smart foods while they're taking GLP-1s — and once they stop.

Sifter's science-based technology accurately identifies nutritious grocery foods (fresh, frozen, dried, canned, and packaged) that align with specific health diets and are suitable while taking GLP-1 medications. Our proprietary “GLP-1 Food Choices" filter prioritizes lean proteins and whole, nutritious foods that are low in saturated fat and limited in sodium and added sugars. Sifter also makes it easy to shop for these foods because we identify where they can be purchased, down to the zip code, across a network of 35,000+ national and local grocery stores.

In essence, our innovative tools connect your patients with smart grocery foods that support medication therapy and teach the importance of good food selection during and after treatment. With Sifter, you can:

Medically tailor food guidance. Healthcare providers and dietitians can generate "food scripts" and grocery lists that are customized not only for GLP-1s, but for the patient's cultural preferences, food intolerances, and other health conditions. As the patient transitions off GLP-1 medications, food selection guidance is easily modified to manage optimum weight for the long term.

Scan foods for in-store shopping guidance. Sifter's platform includes food barcode scanning that can be linked into various mobile health apps. Patients use their smartphone to instantly determine, with great accuracy, whether the food is appropriate for their current health and diet needs.

Sifter technology teaches good nutrition selection by guiding GLP-1 patients to smart foods. Learning what to eat is important to sustain weight loss and better health — for a lifetime.
