Yuka scans food & personal care products to decipher their ingredients and evaluate their impact on your health.

In a world of incomprehensible labels, Yuka provides clarity in one quick scan so you can make clear-sighted purchases.

Yuka uses a simple color code to inform you of the product's impact on your health: excellent, good, mediocre, or poor. You can access a detailed info page for each product, to help you understand its grade.


Every product is evaluated according to 3 objective criteria: nutritional value, additives, and the organic dimension of the product.


The scoring method relies on analyzing all of the product's ingredients. Every ingredient is assigned a level of risk, based on current scientific research.


For any product with a negative grade, Yuka will recommend in total independence a similar product that's better for your health as an alternative.


Yuka is a 100% independent application. This means that product evaluations and recommendations are completely objective: no brand or manufacturer can influence them in one way or another. In addition, the application does not advertise. Find out more about our funding on our website.

    Great idea!! Just what nutrition needs: independence from companies. I would have rated it 5/5 if it wasn't for some mistakes. For instance, I filled the nutritional values of a product and it said it was not correct, tried it a few more times and nothing... But it WAS correct. Anyway, I guess it is nothing that can't be fixed... Hope it gets checked!! Everybody should be using this app!

  2. Sarah Aberman-avatar

    Sarah Aberman


    I like it, it's easy to use and quite nice to check products. It's heavily skewed towards organic products to the point that sometimes I wonder if it's totally fair. Compared two soy sauces, one organic, one not. Both have only one negative point listed: salt. Organic one contains more salt per 100g than other one. However, it's rated excellent and the non-organic one as poor, all due supposedly to lower salt content. I would suggest being more transparent about how not being organic is a minus.

  3. Stef F-avatar

    Love this app! I've been wanting to avoid harmful chemicals in products for a while but was clueless and this app makes this easy to do. I've been around the house scanning everything and I've binned various products.. I was sad to find some of my favourites were actually full of harmful chemicals, which I won't be buying again now. At the moment the app seems better for cosmetic products over food items, but I guess the more people use it with time, the more products that will be listed on it.

  4. Andy May-avatar

    Andy May


    Amazing concept - Inconsistent product info. The app is in serious need of curators to check that all fields are completed correctly. Many products have ingredients missing or names missing from products. This makes the search functionality a little hit and miss.

  5. Karine Li-avatar

    Karine Li


    Great App. At first I was a bit sceptical as most of the products I scanned were "poor" or "bad" so I look onto some alternatives within the app for beauty products and decided to give it a try. It works! The products recommended by Yuka are actually accurate in terms of their rating and they details the ingredients which is great. It's my go to app whenever I need to buy a new beauty product. It is not because you find a product online with great reviews that it means that it is good for you.

  6. Agnes Adkins-avatar

    Agnes Adkins


    Brilliant app. Easy and very quick to use. All info about products are here. I like the fact that i can see product is ved, good or excellent!!! Brilliant invent. If you want the best food to put in your body then this app helps you to decide. I would put 100 stars. "live healthy, eat healthy and stay healthy.

    Cannot use it without sign in using e mail or facebook. That surprise me for a free version of an application which does not sell information. Why is it so much needed that we cannot use it without sugn in? Thanks for the answer. So that a feature request: a mode read only, no registration with for people that just want to test the information provided...

  8. Piotr Piwowarczyk-avatar

    Piotr Piwowarczyk


    Wow! Fast and very useful. On the first day of using it I have thrown away about 10 items from my fridge that had a bad (red) score! It's insane what the food industry does to us all!

  9. Vincent Messera-avatar

    Vincent Messera


    When trying to add a product, i followed all instructions, then when when i tried going to register it, it kept telling me to check calorie to make sure it was accurate and it was but wouldn't let me get past that part, i continued to click correct, and it wouldn't go to the next step

  10. Donna Creative Blessings-avatar

    Donna Creative Blessings


    Waste of my valuable time. The first item was a tea not listed. I performed everything prompted to enter the tea into the system. I got to the nutritional info data entry and it refused to accept the 95 calories provided in the photo I took and in the data listed under nutritional info. The next item prompted that the barcode is not supported. NOT a pleasant experience.

  11. Lorna Muir-avatar

    Lorna Muir


    Game changer! This app is amazing. Such a good idea. I spend alot of time looking at ingredients trying to work out which is the better product. This app makes it so simple. I now can't live without it. Hopefully this also sends a strong message to some food/beauty companies to 'clean up their act'

  12. Julia Marin-Yaseli de la Parra-avatar

    Julia Marin-Yaseli de la Parra


    Still some products missing and I think you might be able to choose what is best for you (e.g. you filter products without canola oil...) But love it!

  13. Iva Mae-avatar

    Iva Mae


    Now, it is given me cosmetic products unrelated to the product, example jergens original lotion to shea moisture hair care products, sorry but unstalling, but on my other device it gave me the same product suggestions on different things I scanned for.

  14. Marianna Riva-avatar

    Marianna Riva


    Extremely useful app, finally I can understand whether the products purchased have good ingredients or could be harmful. Suggestion: add a search box! (so users can look up products for which they already discarded the external box)

  15. thumbstickchick-avatar



    Heard about this app on a podcast ... law of attraction changed my life. This app is amazing... you scan products and make choices about what you've been putting in and 0n yourself that is actually harmful. Highly recommended. Great idea, great execution. Thank you

    Triet Vo


    I haven't used this app much but already loved the concept of it scanning and rating the quality without sometimes needing to check the ingredients.

  17. SovietSeal-avatar



    Excellent app! The registration process is simple, with occasional bugs that are fixed quickly and with excellence by the team. One thing the app can use is an option to view the ingredients and allergens in the product. The usage of image recognition to text is helpful but also an option to view the original image. If this is implemented I will raise this to a 5.

    So far so good. Very fast product rating. Does not explai. All ingredients nut the basic sugar, salt, and protien taying as well as whether or not it has bad or harmful ingredients.

    Excellent app! The best feature is that it provides the list of ingredients with explanations why certain are classified thr way they are. Good luck with the project!

    I really love the fact I can scan and see the information about how healthy the products are. Comparing to before their datasets became even more big and accurate. I definitely recommend this app to other people! It's definitely easy to use as you need to scan the barcode and if they have it in their database they will directly redirect you to the detail page of the product.

  22. Mariuca BOLAÑOS ALVES-avatar



    Great app. I can find any products from every supermarket. Fast, easy to use and with the nutrition information.

  23. Sékou Smiley-avatar

    Sékou Smiley


    Good app I really appreciate it but doesn't take into account the negative impact of packaging and tin cans on the food and the latter could be really dangerous for health in the long run. Apart from that, really useful and user friendly app

  24. ag jur-avatar

    Overall good app. Would be useful to be able to immediately find the type of product in search as the categorisation doesn't always make sense

  25. Naless-avatar



    Honestly a life saver. I use it everywhere in order to see which products are actually healthy and which ones are just green washing. Recommend!

    1st item scanned half of the nutritional values are wrong, submitted corrections which doesn't seem to be picked up by the AI scan... Not sure if its an app you can really trust.....

    It's a great app. And works amazingly. I love it My only comment is that it doesn't show carbs, otherwise it's perfect

  30. LIANA AGHAYAN-avatar



    Great app but impossible to change the language. You have to change ypur phone's language if using an android. Otherwise impossible to change only the language of this app.

  31. Morkys Mainline-avatar

    Has next to no Australian products. Scanned everything in my house, all that came up was Vegemite, and it gave it a bad food rating. Would give 0 stars if I could EDIT: yeah I'm not adding 99% of Australian products myself, manually inputting a bunch of tedious info that the app makes 0 effort to skim from the photo of the nutrition info table. I mean unless you want to pay me to do that.

  32. Medurion-avatar



    Fantastic app. Nice and easy to understand ratings. Also recommends alternatives. Some Product are missing though which is quite unfortunate.

  33. Brittney-avatar



    New to it but it's a great app to educate you on the foods we eat and beauty products that we use. It also gives better suggestions on what to get.

  34. Kate BALDI-avatar

    Kate BALDI


    Just a wonderful app in my opinion! I love how it recomends healthier food swaps. Also it scans beauty products! Not giving 5 stars because you can't upload a screenshot (for scanning internet purchases) which is a big part of my regular activities.

    Amazing app to change the way you eat and use cosmetics!! No more headaches reading ingredients. It's surprising how price doesn't have anything to do with the quality of some products

    Works good. Scans very fast, but how does this app makes money? I didn't find anything about it.

    perfect app... need to expend to the Whole europe. here in Poland i can't even add new product. aparently. I am stuck at the "Validation of the Ingredients" picture.... 🤷 maybe it doesnt reconised the language 🤔. looking forward to have an update like this 😎

    Great App. You can truly find out what types of harmful chemicals or carginogens you are putting in your body everyday! They don't have all products info but you can fill up the information and they come back to you pretty quickly.

  49. anya-avatar



    The app is useful but I have been using it to test my cosmetic products like moisturizer and cleanser and all the ratings have been either poor or bad! I've scanned about 10 products so far and not one has got a higher rating than 'poor'. I'm doubting whether this app is actually accurate because my products have high ratings and are well known brands like Nivea and Sukin. I can't put my trust into this app. :(

    For a start apparently semi-skimmed cow's milk is healthier than Skinny Oatly which is not true whatsoever. I don't think drinking puss, blood and faeces is healthier than just oats marinated in water? The dairy industry is sick, the way they forcefully impregnate cows and take away their babies just so WE can have their milk ment for their baby. You're not a baby cow! Do you really think something that is mass produced is cared for properly? NO.

    Generally a very useful app, but you should take Yuka's opinions on some additives with a grain of salt. It considers MSG very bad, for example, when the "MSG is bad" myth has been debunked many times already.

  82. :-avatar



    The score yuka gives to some items seems odd at times, but that's not my issue. The issue is that I've used yuka on multiple phones, data, and wifi networks, but it still takes an hour for anything scanned to appear most of the time. Sometimes it'll be instantaneous, but most of the time, it'll scan, disappear, and the scanned item will decide to reappear after a few hours, sometimes a day. If I'm shopping for groceries, and scanning physical items in a store, I don't have time for this.

    Needs a better database in Australia. I've contributed several things but nearly every food item in my pantry needs manual input. Maybe you guys could crawl the web for products sold over here. Our 2 major supermarkets are Coles and Woolworths. Upon further investigation, you seem to be using / sharing a database with openfood facts. Not sure if you have the ability to manually add items.

  94. Laurianne Proud-avatar

    Laurianne Proud


    This app could be great but the data is very often not accurate and they never compare the products on the same base. 2 products with exact same content can have a very different rating. The idea is great but if the data stays in accurate like this, it is not useful.

    Great app. Missing Compare feature. Sometimes I pick up two similar items (for example two types of milk) and although I can scan and analyze each, it would be great if there was a Compare feature where I could scan two items and it would show me their analysis side by side. Right now, I have to memorize the numbers of one and then compare to the other one. Thanks

    Not worth it. It's a great idea, but poorly executed. Hardly anything is already in their system. A product will show red if there is even a trace of something that may or may not be harmful even when route of exposure to be toxic is not the same as the peoduct,. I.e. (this ingredient) is toxic when ingested in large quantities but the product is a face cream and the ingredient is the last listed.

    Works well...when it knows the product. I've had this for a couple months now, but found an issue: it didn't know half of the products I was scanning, and several of the products I scanned were well known such as ELF. After the fiftieth time of being met with disappointment and lost as to weather or not the product I wanted to buy was good for my sensitive and oily skin, I finally grew so frustrated and deleted the app all together.

    Great way to check if a product is healthy. The subscription is a kind idea but pretty expensive just to have the offline Modus. I canceled the subscription for next year, 100mb for the data (without pictures) is too much for my use. And the update for offline use lasts ages .my last update runs already 4 hours .this cannot be ...

    Unbelievable. Great idea, very transparent and astonishing: a lot of products that I trusted because they were renowned and expensive, were simply just mediocre or even of bad quality. It finds almost everything and it is very reliable, gives lots of suggestions/alternatives. Concerning just the app: simple to use and get around, the free version has lots of stuff, premium feels good to contribute to the project. No crashes, no issues. I recommend everyone. Specially before going shopping.

  108. Cec-avatar



    Pretty annoying to have to enter the data yourself whenever you scan something, when the original purpose of the app is to provide the kind of info it's asking you to input. I really don't find any added value within this app compared to others such as MyFitnessPal. If the main argument is "well our service is free" then you did not target your audience properly. Currently, this app is a waste of time.

However, even though the process to add unknown products seems easy and straightforward, there's a big but, identifying ingredients from a rounded shape taking two pictures returns disappointing results. My camera app takes much better pictures of close objects than Yuka's. In addition, important parts of the previewed pictures get cropped automatically. Please consider investing more resources in improving this aspect.

    Slightly annoyed with the app. I paid for the subscription, as it said you'd have access to search for all the products without having to scan them. Well, it doesn't seem to work. I searched for several products by name and brand, not found. But when I scanned the var code, the results were available. So why make us pay for a service that doesn't deliver? Be honest about it, it's not the price, it's the ethics.

    I really appreciate the concept. More people need to read labels and understand what is in the products they consume. However, i became frustrated with this app. Out of the 12 things i scanned only one was already in the database. Common branded toothpastes werent even listed? Update product list so i dont have to manually enter everything i use.

    I really like this app. I live the design and the idea but it has 1 major flaw. The fact that people are able to manually contribute additional items that were not in the system before is a GREAT idea and I love it but at the same time it comes with a problem. The app base it's ratings off of 100g of the item however when people input the nutritional data they will use the number that are listed on the product which often are based on a different number of grams. This causes bad data.

    Several languages not supported. For example, french installation does not show German products. WHY? I want to be able to select what I can and I cant see. What if I travel? If this is fixed then I am considering premium. Why some ingredients are bad? Some background knowledge would help. Also the licensing model is somehow strange. You are charged for the whole year. What if I want to test one month? Search only for premium, but I cant see what search brings. Needs general improvement.

    Really good app I especially like that it recommends better products Does it work in Romania ?

    I like the app and I have some suggestions for the premium features. 1. The ability to make lists of products and sub lists. 2. An extension to the premium membership for every new product entered. For example an extra week free for each new item entered. And an extra free week for each incorrect or changed ingredients detected. 3. The ability to customise the scoring, for example to ignore sugar or fat or additives, etc content in the scoring.

    Useful to avoid having to decipher the list of ingredients on items, and check for harmful additives. However I find the ratings are very biased, and mostly exclusively dedicated to overweight people . For example, I'm underweight, so not bent on losing weight and the glucides rate in my blood is under average, so I get annoyed when I see a product rated as mediocre/poor, not because it contains harmful additives but due to being "too sweet" or "too salty". Too single minded.

    Wasn't even able to sign up, I typed my email address and it just said "Incorrect email address". So, to make sure, I copied it from my email app, pasted it in, and still this app said it was incorrect. It didn't even try to send me an email. Useless.

  118. Alexandre Teixeira-avatar

    Nice and easy to use but the scoring is not very scientific... They ignore one of the basic principals of toxicology that "the dose makes the poison" i.e. they don't account for how much ingredient is in the product.. if you were to follow there advice then you also shouldn't eat apple's or pears because they contain formaldehyde!! Also they classify MSG (an amino acid!!) and Aspartame as high risk when there is no scientific evidence to support this...

    Since the app requires you to sign up, either by email or Facebook, it's not for me. Since the reason stated previously for this is just so you can have a history,it seems illogical to me that there can't be an option to continue without signing in unless there really is some more data capture going on behind the scenes. What a shame.

    Overall I enjoy this app. However, my biggest concern is when I scanned a type of protein bar it told me it was a poor choice but it gave me better recommendations. One of the recommendations was a "RX bar chocolate coconut protein". It said it was rated 90/100 and an excellent choice. Later I went to scan that exact RX bar the app recommended and it was rated a poor choice at 39/100. Makes me nervous about what other mess ups there are.

    Excellent impartial and detailed health and safety advice on a myriad of products with some useful suggestions on alternatives. Refers to scientific research articles to back up evaluations. While the free version is already excellent, I recommend to upgrade to the reasonably priced premium version to support the developers and also for the ability to use offline and build up a list of favourite items. I never shop without this app now and can't rate it highly enough!

    Amazing. Provides much confidence when shopping and selecting produces, as a mum, this is crucial. it is also fun to check out all the beauty products and food in your cupboards! Hoping that it will increase my knowledge of components too.

    Very good so far. One bad point: when deleting an entry it does not delete the photo, and I cannot find the folder in my phone where the photos are stored to delete manually. Can you please include an option to delete media/photos associated to each entry to avoid clogging up phone memory?

    bug1: if you make a change according to the valid info and you capture that table of nutrition values that looks different from one the app used to parse you won't be able to commit it. bug2: when you make a picture, crop it and then want to get back to recapture it will return to the edit page with picture loading forever. removed the app because of the bugs and wrong or absent info of products

    Love the app and the way it provides recommendations on which products to use instead! Keep up the good job!

    Amazing! It changed my life and it's sad to find out that these big brands out there don't care if the components they use will cause cancer or any other harm. They only care about selling and making money!!! I hope it becomes available in every country or with products from other countries sold in the UK. I also hope that improves with all the stuff already sold here. Some of them it does not recognise. Thanks once again for making my life better.

    I am so much more confident and at peace knowing what I am shopping/eating , its unbelivable how deciving lots of the products are and how blind we are to buy them and I am very very grateful to have this application, I changed a lot of my shopping habits and i love supporting good products, I love the transparency ot gives as. Thank you, thsnk you, thank you !!! Love everyone involved in msking this applocatoon possible.

    Good concept but you need to do more research on sodium. Any scientific report from the 21st century will show you there is no link between cardiovascular disease and sodium.

    I thought this app may be better than ThinkDirty but it's not. I've scanned 4 things and of those 4 only 1 was already in the library. The other 3 I had to take pictures and so far it's given a wait time of 4 hours.... It took 4 days for the first to come through. Overall though, the app is very easy to use

    Essential for anyone who cares about what they eat! With just a quick scan of any food or drink item's bar code it tells you what you need to know about it. Does it have too much sugar or salt? Any dangerous preservatives? It even makes suggestions for healthier alternatives. Love it. I can see myself using this every time I go shopping for years to come.

    Don't waste your time with this app. 95% of the products I scanned were not in their system. I really don't want to have to add everything I scan to be registered. I understand not all products will be in the system but out of the 18 things I scanned only actually came up. Frustrating.

    The fact that as a person with an allergy — which is a disability — I have to pay them yearly to be warned if something has my allergens in it that will leave me bed bound is absolutely vile and horrendous

    Wasn't able to use. During this time of sheltering in place, I'm purchasing more of my personal products online. I don't have a product in front of me to scan the bar code. I was looking forward to using the app, but during this pandemic it would be great to have a search function like "hair conditioner" so you can compare results.

    Really useful app! I have scanned all my items at home and I'm surprised that some of them has not good ingredients as I thought . It is useful that app shows alternatives (and I hope in future it will show more alternatives).

    The app itself is great but I paid to subscribe and it still doesn't work in shops. I've given up altogether now because it keeps wanting me to sign in and then doesn’t recognise my password and wants me choose a new password and then that one doesn't work. So I won't be paying again next year.

    --- Update: brand bias. Exact same products (same ingredients list) of different brands are scored differently. Emailing about the inaccuracy does not help, thus I can only conclude that Yuka is biased. --- Useful! What usually takes a lot of time researching is looked up in a matter of seconds when the product has already been added by someone. Just wish it supported also German for product additions. Recommendations tend to be France-centric, and adding more languages should help ease that.

  137. Glenn-avatar



    There needs to be a way to search for items, like excellent rated things to substitute when there isn't a readily available substitute recommendation. But also because many items came boxed, yet aren't no longer and the boxes are long since garbage, along with the barcode on them. Great and very useful otherwise

    This app is great! not only does it tell you if a product is good or bad it gives you a better alternative. This is just a suggestion but I think it would be awesome if you made another app like this but for pet supply like food and vitamins in medicine Etc I would definitely tell my pet owner friends about it ❤

    Good idea but recommendations for similar products seem highly BIASED depending on brands. Reply: This is my experience and not only with one product but after seeing this pattern repeatedly, I decided to post my comment. I understand apps developer's reply is genuine, but the matter of fact is that more often than expected one can find different ratings for VERY similar products. I can provide a few examples if needed.

    Very handy app, well functioning. But sometimes biased information. For instance, Yuka consider ingredients Octocrylene high risks based on only one scientific research, however, in several other reliable sources, I found the conclusions largely different from that of Yuka's based on more scientific researches including the one Yuka is listing. I would sincerely appreciate if Yuka can dig deeper into ingredients before jumping to conclusions and ended up feeding skewed viewpoints to their users.

    i Love the app. its quick, enables users to add products and gets uploaded after validation, gives alternatives to poor quality products.. I would like if the developers can add a feature of adding a 'note' or something to a product so that users can add information like price or something for their info.

    I love this app! When you add a product you have the result in less than 12h and It's very informative, providing links with the source of the infornation regarding the ingredients (cosmetics) I also really appreciate the feature with recommendations for alternative healthier products!! Definitely deserve 5 🌟!!

    None of the items I've scanned show up in the database. :( I purchase and use very common items so there should not be such a lack of information in the database for everyday items and extremely common/popular brands available at most major retailers

    Great app, gives you a new perspective of what you eat and alot of useful info on harmful chemicals found in your daily products. Just be sure to use it with reason and not have it as your "product" bible.

    Tried to use for a few months but still don't like it. All I scan is bad or poor because additives and salt are priority for this app and I don't care about those. You need to scroll down and find that everything else is great. I want to know if the mix between ALL ingredients is healthy, good or bad. So unless one can choose what's important for THEM I will uninstall and use other apps.

    Suggestion to developpers: for the additives, add a link to a site describing the negative impacts of the additive. No adds. Free. Fast scans. Good info. Keeps info of scanned items. Proposes alternative products.

    Very useful app. Easy to use. There is a possibility to add products that are not listed yet but the list is already good. The app rates the ingredients and gives a quite complete information about each of them.

    Skincare fanatics; this app is not for you. The app rates cosmetics based on the 'potential risk' of certain ingredients, but in a complete biased opinion. I came across many bad skincare products filled with denatured alcohol and perfume high on the ingredient list that got a 100/100 rating.. Please revise your idea of 'good' and 'bad' please!
