easier to implement than working with many many cameras/platforms:
let me enter a UPC in the search box.

oh, and add a UPC entry field to the new food form, so that can be
captured when users create new foods...

I like that idea.

I have to say most of the time the barcode is not found I this because the product is not in then database at all but I do sometimes get cases where the product is there but missing the code or cases where the barcode on the package is damaged and the scanner does not recognise it. In those cases searching by name is quite natural but sometimes there are too many results and scrolling though them all is a bit tedious,

There is the issue of miskeying burn don't these comes have a check digit?

I agree, I would like to be able to enter a UPC code on the mobile app or website when searching for foods.
