About this app


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.

This app is very inconsistent when you use the search feature. I looked up an inkey list product and got mixed results. One said it was excellent and others said it was bad. For a paid experience I expected more. Maybe I am using it wrong. Also, there A LOT of main stream products that do not show up in the search feature which is the main reason I went on and paid for premium version. Overall, I am pretty disappointed that I spend the money.

Hello Jennifer, Products may present different ratings due to: Different versions of this product being in circulation, with different compositions. For every product you scan, you can compare the ingredients' list on the product with the list on the app. There might also be an outdated ingredient list. My apologies for this. Best, Briana

Such a game changer for me with leading me in the right direction to a better me. I've had this app for over a year. This past weekend I experienced an issue with a product I scanned one day and it said it was Bad. Looked at my log and noticed it was changed to Excellent 100/100. I was baffled because I made plans to return the item. I looked at the ingredients and only about 2% of the was in it was written down. So make sure you double check the ingredients!

I love this app! It's a very user friendly interface, no set up needed, and the features are very efficient and intuitive. My one real issue, is that it considers calories a negative nutritional quality. As somebody with an ectomorphic body type (skinny with a high metabolism), I NEED high caloric intake throughout the day so lower calorie foods are actually MORE unhealthy for my dietary needs. I wish you could customize your dietary needs because of varying body types which is why I rated 4/5.
