◆ THE 25 MILLION USERS APP ◆ Yuka is a free mobile app that allows you to scan the barcodes of food and personal care products and instantly see their impact on your health. A rating and detailed information help you understand the analysis of each product. When a product has a negative impact on your health, Yuka also recommends similar but healthier alternative products. ◆ A 100% INDEPENDENT PROJECT ◆ Yuka is a 100% independent project : product reviews and recommendations of healthier alternatives are done in an objective way. No brand or manufacturer can influence them in one way or another. Furthermore, there is no in-app advertising. You can access detailed information on our business model on our website (www.yuka.io). ◆ 1 MILLION REFERENCED PRODUCTS ◆ Yuka established a database that contains 700,000 food products and 300,000 cosmetic products. Each food product is evaluated according to 3 objective criteria: nutritional quality, presence of additives and organic aspect of the product. The method to analyse cosmetic products is based on the analysis of all the ingredients of the product. Each ingredient is assigned a risk level according to the latest scientific data. --- Terms of use: https://yuka-app.helpdocs.io/l/en/article/2a12869y56

Love this App

Very helpful for clean, healthy eating. Love how it breaks everything down and tells you why it’s not good. Great for beauty products!

Love hate relationship

Ok, so I got really excited about this app. Really trying to eat better and be more mindful of what’s going in my body and my families. I do think this is a 2 fold type thing. I love that it gives breakdown of whats in the products (like additives) and why they are harmful. However, like what am I supposed to eat?! Lol almost everything in my house has poor ratings. And i don't feel like I buy a lot of “bad” foods. Be prepared to get poor ratings on things you thought were OK to eat. Definitely a learning process and it does give recommendations on foods that are similar and have good ratings. So this is a love hate relationship.

Almost no european food products

Great app but missing way too much of international food. The app can not read other languages if you want to sign a product up.

The most inaccurate app

This is the worst app to use if you are trying to eat cleaner/healthier. It goes off caloric history not ingredients, which is terrible! It rated my three ingredient “lesser evil popcorn” a 46/100 which is FASLE because it is one of the healthiest popcorns out there. Don’t waste your time like I did mine.

NIH should pay for this

National Institute of health should pay for this this is a great app and Holds manufactures accountable

For those who are trying to find an app that helps determine if the product is good enough to purchase, I recommend using a different one. I noticed some of the products I was using were given an average rating but the recommendations that it would give me were absurd. It recommended me to use clean and clear products when in fact their products have gone through multiple lawsuits in the past due to cancerous ingredients they put in their products. Any product that has the additive yellow included in their ingredient is a NO! Be safe and try better next time Yuka.

Complete waste of time

I’m working on my dietitian degree and when someone in my family started using this app, I checked it out. To be blunt, the recommendations are terrible and make no sense. High sugar, highly processed foods are recommended and score higher the low or no sugar foods. And there seems to be an extreme weighting towards sodium content over everything else. Do not use this app if you care about your health
