Ratings and Reviews
Everyone should have this app downloaded
Where to start? I’ve had this app for only a few days now, and have been going around my house scanning absolutely everything and anything. Any food I buy, I now know whether it’s terrible for me, or if it’s a good source of XYZ. Not only is it great for finding what foods to buy, but beauty products as well. The shampoo, body wash, and conditioner I’ve been using I’ve now found is harmful and contains tons of harmful chemicals. Same with my deodorant. The suggestions is just an added bonus, which is great to see what alternatives I should be using. My brother said that since he’d been using my (harmful) body wash, he’s been breaking out with acne. We had no idea why, but we now suspect it was because of the body wash. I’m extremely comforted to know as well that the app is funded solely by the users; the results aren’t swayed by big name brands or companies paying Yuka to alter the results. Honestly, I’m a walking ad for this app now. I’ve shown coworkers, roommates, and my family. I think absolutely everyone should have this app, in a world where the consumer is constantly lied to and misled on the purchases they’re making. Yuka, God bless you. You are doing amazing, amazing work. I’ve never felt so strongly about an app before. The fact that I’m writing this review says a lot to anyone who knows me. Thank you Yuka, you have changed my life forever! 🥕🥕🥕
Developer Response ,
Wow! We are so touched by your feedback, a huge thank you!
So helpful with mindfulness!
I discovered this app on Tiktok about a week ago and I’m blown away by how much I have learned already. It is so so so helpful for my health journey to be able to see all the ingredients in my diet. People always say not to eat anything with ingredients you can’t pronounce, but who actually has the time to look up all these scary ingredients? This app is doing the work for you and making it a CONVENIENT way to make more conscious choices while grocery shopping. The blurbs of information regarding why an ingredient is bad or good is very easy to understand (in my opinion) and it is giving me a lot to think about in my life. I don’t want to put these things into my body, especially if they can build up and cause problems to me later in life. It’s shocking to see what kinds of things are being absorbed into my body. Packaging and marketing of products can be VERY misleading and I’m glad I have the science in this app to help me when all the choices of products may be misleading me.
One thing to note is that it is very important to be reading WHY the products are bad, because Yuka is not only looking at the harmful things but also taking into account nutrition. I don’t mind eating something that’s way too fatty for me (in moderation) as long as it doesn’t have anything harmful :).
I think everyone should have this app. It makes it so much easier to read between the lines of all ingredients. Especially beauty products. I am a scientist and half the time I don’t even know what some of these ingredients are. When it comes to food, I think it is very eye opening to see that just because something is labeled as organic, non gmo, blah, blah… it doesn’t always have the best ingredients. Now to my complain. I don’t buy anything with corn syrup or added sugars. This i already know by heart after going for clean only foods about 10 years ago. However, for someone who is just starting to navigate this confusing world of food, it may be misleading to read that ice cream is rated as poor. Now, hear me out. This was my husband’s thinking when we scanned an ice cream brand at Sprouts. The rating was poor. It said it had high fat and high sugar. According to my husband, ice cream should be fatty and sugary. Can’t argue with that if we are talking about a standard ice cream recipe. In his eyes, there was nothing wrong with the ice cream. The app fails to indicate that the brand contains corn syrup. I think it should be broken down better. The rating is poor because it has high sugar content, but not just any sugar. It has corn syrup. I feel the developers should work more into explaining why a high sugar rating deems a product poor. Not everyone is well versed with the dangers of sugars, real or fake.
