With about 600 officially licensed food additives now living in modern people's lives, consumers' interest in the additives, food safety and harmfulness in food products is also increasing, and mobile services for consumers who want to properly recognize and purchase the safety of food they want to consume are being implemented at home and abroad. In this study, six major applications that provide food safety information were analyzed for functions and designs, evaluated by design experts and evaluated for usability to actual users. Through the function and design analysis results, three similar domestic applications were selected, and the design experts were evaluated for UI and usability, and two of the most similar applications were selected for usability testing. The test results showed that the two applications were similar in usability, but considering the overall results, it was found that the strictest available food safety application. After this study, we propose improvements in the design of food safety applications and existing designs and functions to help improve the convenience of food application developers and users, and thus to ensure the safe and correct eating habits of the people.
