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.

    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.

  2. Nik Dey-avatar

    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.

    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 ❤

    I would love to be able to change the language in the app. I speak French as well as English but my app is stuck in English and so I can't see the section about recommended alternatives

    Good app scanning products food or other very useful and give you alternative, you save your favorite products or you can simply add information about an unfound product I recommend it.

    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.

  10. 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

    Easy to use. Can be moved to external SD memory. App is free and has no ads. BUT, Rated DONALD DUCK FRUTE PUNCH "POOR". It is is sold in just about all Dollar Tree stores. 8 oz has 15 calories! 20 oz bottle has 40 calories!. "Poor". Give me a break!

    Checked one product: they had the sodium value wrong by about 1000×. Was interested in the premium version but it was nowhere to be found. I would rate this app higher but my first impression didn't give me anything to rate this higher than 2 stars.

  13. Jennifer Waudby-avatar

    It works great if you have a bar code. It would be much better if there was a search bar. I want to check out products I may be ordering or have thrown out the packaging.

    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.

    Nice little app to check on the calories and fat you're eating. although it's not always accurate and is missing a lot of food but hey! it's free and the list would be bigger if all of us contribute :)

  16. Liz Nunes-avatar

    Liz Nunes


    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.

    This is an app that deserves more attention. Not only does it do exactly what it's advertised to do, but it does it well. I've always been all about knowing what we put in and on our bodies and this just makes it easier without any ads.

    Absolute garbage it only scans well known products and doesn't allow you to fill in any information. Don't waste your money on this useless app. It doesn't deserve 1 star.

    Andreia N. Queirós


    Extremely helpful The only thing that doesn't make me give it the 5th star is the fact that the app evaluates "perfume, fragrance, etc" as not harmful. After watching the documentary Stink! It is evident that it's an ingredient to be aware of and avoid when there is no additional information regarding its composition.

    Bonnie McAuliffe


    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.

    Filipe Tomaz Serrano


    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.

  38. Bernard A-avatar

    Bernard A


    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 ...

  39. Ashkan Ahmadi-avatar

    Ashkan Ahmadi


    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

    I could not do anything in this app when searching to buy online. Please allow us to search for items by category, and sort them by best ratings.

  42. Natalie Oliver-avatar

    Natalie Oliver


    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.

    This app just blow up my mind, I can't stop using it. I knew I needed something like this but didn't know that existed.

  44. Jesús Rodríguez-avatar

    Jesús Rodríguez


    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.

  45. 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.

  46. Catherine ALHINC-avatar

    Catherine ALHINC


    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.

  47. Ian Kensington-avatar

    Ian Kensington


    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!

  48. Angela Badoiu-avatar

    Angela Badoiu


    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.

    Very nice app. Helpful. Informative. Planning to use it during my shopping to make better choices.

  50. Ashley Butcher-avatar

    Ashley Butcher


    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.

  51. AntwanFuzznips-avatar



    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.

  52. Jaclyn Walsh-avatar

    Jaclyn Walsh


    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.

    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?

  54. Tessa Russell-avatar

    Tessa Russell


    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

  55. Jane Shaw-avatar

    Jane Shaw


    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.

    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.

  57. Cal Alaera-avatar

    Cal Alaera


    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.

  58. Angel-avatar



    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.

    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

    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 🌟!!

  61. Amber D-avatar

    Amber D


    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!

  62. Keiko K-avatar

    Keiko K


    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.

  63. Krista Burte-avatar

    Krista Burte


    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.

  64. Enriq Eduardo de Orta-avatar

    Enriq Eduardo de Orta


    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 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 forces you to create an account.. what if I don't want to give you my email ? Uninstalled. Answers to Yuka's comments below: 1) You don't need an account to store data locally on Smartphones. SQLite or other databases (relational and non-relational) work fine. An account would make sense if you want to "permanently" store data, in case you change your Smartphone. Scan history is not unlimited anyway. 2) Then why not forcing the account creation, only for people that want to contribute ?

    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. El Coco app is much better.

    The application will not run without my email and password or my Facebook account. I do not want to provide either.

    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

    Just installed the app, scaned a few items, I keep getting a message: the product's language is not supported. I don't know if it is because I use English and the products are puchased in French speaking countries. I searched everywhere in the app and couldn't find a language settings in this app, please fix this, thanks.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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...

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

    --- 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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Great app to check out the ingredient and general healthiness level of almost any food product in shops. I constantly use it while grocery shopping.

    There is only an option to scan; no searching!? They make you do the work by entering in missing products. Also, it doesn't tell me how to remove my account and data.

    Love the app! Only thing missing: information, whether a cosmetics brand is cruelty free or not!

    It's a nice app but there are too many products that aren't listed so I can only get the info 1/4 of the time

    What's the point of signing in with email-I wouldn't even touch Facebook-if it's a phone app which you can only install by having a Google (or Apple,I suppose) account? More stars when you justify it. Your reply is idiotic: I'm signed in with Android. The first part is just cut/paste from any website

    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!!

  111. Patriotgames-avatar



    The last thing I want is to have to sign in to an app. This is supposed to be a scanner so why do I need to identify who I am? As soon as it asked me for login, I deleted the app.

    Very convenient app, potentially life saver. Yet how can products be rated as excellent despite having potential carcirogen additives listed? (Ie sensodyne) i have thrown 5eur to trash due to this.

    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 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.
