About this app


Yuka scans food, beauty & 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.

It was honestly a nice app, but there's a major issue for me. Recently, it just randomly started crashing a lot before I could even scan any items. I tried multiple times, and it kept crashing. Something else I realized is how misleading it is. For example, certain ingredients (one example being Fragrence) is considered a "Low risk" or "No risk" when it's arguably a higher risk. There are also some ingredients which are actually great that are considered to be "Hazardous" or "Moderate risk".

The free version worked great. Once I paid for the premium version it stopped working. I have Uninstalled and reinstalled. I've completed the updates, It will not allow me to sign in, if I do get it to sign in - it won't scan, the search feature will not work correctly, it is always showing the loading icon and won't proceed further. I wasted my money and should have stayed with the free version. At least I could scan items/products with the free version.

I went on here to look at some products I already owned and was disappointed with the utter lack of options available to me. The search feature (a very simple and common feature, in my opinion) is behind a $10 paywall, and you can't access certain products without "inviting a friend" (what is this 2015?). Personally, I got zero use out of this app due to how little is available to someone who has just downloaded it.

Hi, Thank you for your message. The search menu is available in our Premium version to help finance the app, as we are 100% independent. The reason non-Premium users need to share the Top Products feature is to assist in the app's development and increase its visibility. I hope this clarifies our approach for you.
