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.

◆ 600,000 FOOD PRODUCTS ◆

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.

Reviews From google play store

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 🌟!!

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.

Excellent tool for day to day. I was surprised of how different can nutritional values be from to quite similar products. Now I can choose the healthier product and this will make good makers become better

It's great! I miss info about where to buy the suggestions but it's super helpful.

Recommended in general. Easy to use and really useful. 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.

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!

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).

Amazing, it is helping me a lot. Rigorous and easy to use. I love it!

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

The application will not run without my email and password or my Facebook account. I do not want to provide either. I could understand if the appication wanted my name, but not my email and definitely not my password. If it's to finance development, I'm happy to pay a few dolars once I've tested. Uninstalling.

Very useful the app everyone was asking for. I think can be improved by making possible to personalize adding your personal allergies or special diets. And the location of the production to boost the local consumption.

Great app! Should give more information about the additives

--- 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.

works well, doesn't force adds on you, gives you a general idea about the product you are about to buy

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...

Its opened my eyes to how products contain harmful ingredients with no warning about possible undesirable effect in terms of long tarm health. Thanks for creating such a useful app. You do make a difference. Good work, guys!👍

A brilliant way to know how healthy the ingredients are and what kind of additives the foods contain.

Very useful, gives you quick response about products, but can go into details if needed. Easy to use

Only scanned 1 item. After it never could scan/recognize any code bar. You should have a place where you could insert directly the barcode numbers.

Very good app. Extensive database, fast scanning.

I feel so grateful for having this tool! Also, It would be great to know about trans fat. Thank you very much

5 stars with a big fat smile. Keep up the fantastic work, guys.

Can't register, won't accept hyphens on email ( - )

Virtually all recommended products are French. An 100% independent app?

Helpful, even if I use it in France cause most of the products are registered in the app.

I don't get why I need to log in with Facebook. Seems like a scam to callet your personal data

Would be an awesome app if it could launch properly more than 1 in 10 times

Dangerous app. They recommend sunscreen Aptonia from Decathlon with ingredients that are not true. On their score is Good, but this product has Octocrylene which is a high risk ingredient they score bad on other sunscreens brands. I have sent emails but they dont fix this. Their database is not reliable. Beware. Will update soon.

I loved the app! Ever since I've starting using it, I have scanned most of the products inside my bathroom and fridge. Mainly I thought it super interesting for the options if gives to replace the poor/bad products.

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 ...

Great app, instantly informs the customer what's really inside what they're buying. No more falling for false advertisements saying things are healthy when they're actually not. :D

I think it's a fantastic app. I would give it 5 stars but it's not recognising many own brand products like sainsburys and waitrose...Once it does it will deserve 5 stars. It's really amazing.

It's excellent. In order to be perfect I would love if the app could consider containers as well (i.e. cans which might contain bisfenol vs glass containers, etc)

Great way to buy healthy and smartly

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.

Really useful app ! I discovered it in France and I'm glad that it's niw available in the UK

Very useful app, easy to use

Excellent app. Using it to learn about products that are good or harmful for your body. A quick scan of the product and you have a detailed result. Should be used by everybody everywhere!

Best app ever, I recommend it to everyone who wants to stay healthy. If you don't believe me, use it just for 1 week when you go shopping, and I promise you, you you will never go shopping without it. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Apps like this one (independent, altruistic, informative, absolute useful, and ethical with user data) are very difficult to find. A true treasure!

I love the application, but to make it much more satisfactory, I would love to see if the product is vegetarian or vegan. It is a small gesture that saves many hours of purchase.

Most of the foods I scan are "unknown" thus not scannable. You should not need a label to rate foods.

Excellent for monitoring good & bad food & other products too that you use/buy daily 😃

Easy and i love the fact they add some clear explanation! Being independent made me download it. 5*

If it's actually independent, it's amazing!! I choose believe that it is. For now. I will pay to keep it that way :)

Love it!! however not sure about how reliable this can be but at least it gives you an idea.

Doesn't work. It's stuck at the screen "Carrot a day" asking for spybook ups fakebook account or email.

if you are worried about the stuff you are buying, this app will be really useful smart and easy to use for you. what Im wondering if who is describing the products and if it will be influenced by any supporting trademark. Totally recommended.

Love this app. Certainly the proposal of alternatives. great job!

Excellent app, everybody must use it as a daily basis. Thanks for existing.

Too limited in its free version

Great app to know the composition of the products before to buy it

I love this app, makes life easier and healthier!

I like this app a lot. I'd love to know if a product is vegan or vegetarian as well. Maybe not like "bad rate" or something dangerous . But it's useful and I'd like to have that information as well.

Pretty useful. a must.

Excellent app! Any way it would be great if it could inform you if the cosmetic products are cruelty free. Thank you!

Perfect app, good support for being healthy life.

Requires facebook account or email sign-in. Uninstalled to use OpenFoodFacts instead which does not require sign-in.

Great app for everything

really nice to know the quality of food but for additives it would be nice too know what types of risks are involved (for food additives) also the add a new product doesn't work with my phone, it doesn't save the picture i made and finally it s annoying that you don t rate foreign products

Useful works perfectly great app

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.

Awesome app but add a dark mode.

Really good app and helpful.

Great app, however I would go for premium only if it label halal products.

Super usefull! I like it

Unmissable. Find out what's really good and bad in food, beyond marketing messages and catchy packaging.

Really helpful when grocery shopping

It's way faster for me to choose products than reading all the ingredients of what it contains. Unfortunately, this app cannot scan cosmetic products such as LUSH

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.

really opens your eyes to what's actually in the products you've invested in

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.

Loving the details about the ingredients and why they're bad or good for you when found in the products!

Great app. A score indicating what the buying public thinks of the result would be a nice extra. Otherwise great for what it does.

good app, but it would be nice to have prices on the recommended products. and there should also be better suggestions because sometimes they propose hair gel instead of hairspray.

this app desperately lacks a feature allowing to compare two or more products at once. get on it YUKA TEAM!

Great app! I have a suggestion. It will be great to know the quantity of lactose to check for intelorance and allergies

my preferred app. vrai coup de coeur. It helps me to easily shop for healthy food. Good also for identifying healthy cosmetics.

This app is simply amazing. I'm Italian, but I'm currently studying in Belgium and I really wish that my friends in Italy could download and use this app too, because it's life-changing. So, I hope that Yuka will be soon available in other countries too!!

That app is very awesome and useful !! However if i can afford a little suggestion, it would be really great if you could notify if products are vegan and palm oil free 🙄

its a really useful and great application

Should be able to sort your scanned products by family : Cookies, oil, perfum, chocolate,...

good but why cant there be a search button without scanning? I want to know if a product is good betor buying it

Such a wonderful project. Very useful nowadays. Thanks👍

Needs an account to be used. Pity.

Really fast & handy app. Easy to use & so great they recommend alternatives.

Almost perfect : Please add cruelty animal indicators.

Great, but doesn't know about the amounts of some things so it makes incorrect guesses.

very useful app so far!!!! would like to subscribe to offline mode

les utilisateurs d'IOS sont encors privilégié eux peuvent voir les produit cosmétique alors que les androids ne peuvent pas cest fatiguant. IOS' users are again prefered, them can see cosmetics contrary to android's users. it's exhauting!

Good advice to sift through your usual products.

Amazing to see how bad some products realy are

Interesting but most of the "nocif" ingredients are fine and only backed by scaremongering. Also "not compatible" with unlocked devices, seriously?

awesome tool ! try to add the ogm content in the future also. i know it s tough but that will be the top of the cake for yr food review ! or the correct labelling certification for bio ie. check the tight one with *on est pas des pigeons* on bio.

guys.... thank you. i have literally gotten rid of so many bad things.

i have learned so much with this app, for a girl who often gets irritated skin this is saving my life!

This great app will help you eat better 😉

love it ! one question though :p In addition to the food i was wondering if it would be easy to add a note based on how smart is the packaging of the product to reduce waist production and favored recycling. Thanks !

Wouldn't it be great to be able to use this app also for the clothing industry? To see those brands that aspire to be sustainable versus those exploiting child labour and pollute our Earth's rivers etc !

Perfect. Thank you for making this app. Great job.
