About the GoodGuide Rating:
The GoodGuide Rating was developed using methodologies that are grounded in the sciences of informatics and health risk assessment. Products are scored from a low of 0 to a high of 10. The higher the rating, the better the product from a health perspective.
GoodGuide’s mission is to provide consumers with the information they need to make better shopping decisions. We believe that as more consumers choose products that contain ingredients with fewer health concerns, retailers and manufacturers face compelling incentives to make and sell better products.
To fulfill our mission, GoodGuide combines manufacturer-provided information about product ingredients with authoritative information on the health effects of chemicals. We rate products so that consumers can have instant access to credible information about products that would be very difficult for anyone to develop on their own. We are a team of scientific experts in product and chemical information and have been engaged in this project for ten years.
GoodGuide has grown to become the web’s most comprehensive and credible resource for information about the impact of consumer products on human health. Hundreds of thousands consumers use GoodGuide’s website and mobile apps every month to help decode product labels, research ingredients, and make more informed decisions about the products they purchase.

Ratings and Reviews
Could be great, but misses the mark
I think there’s potential here, but the app isn’t easy to use and it gives virtually no information, making it almost totally unhelpful.
Not user friendly
Not intuitive or easy to use. Not easy or even somewhat easy to navigate. Information provided is simplistic and general. The filters, when you can find them, are basic and unwieldy. Doesn’t provide data on enough brands. People who go to the trouble to download an app to research product ingredients expect a sophisticated, detailed and user friendly product, not one that looks as if it were designed for 10 yr old users. Don’t waste your time.
How can every ingredient not be harmful?
I wanted to look around and find why some food items were rated worse than others. A 4 rating white bread had a few chemical ingredients listed as well as high fructose corn syrup. Every ingredient though was listed as “no know health concerns...”. So what’s the bad stuff in this bread then? Hard to have faith in what the ratings are when you can’t discern why some are rated bad.
