    • Offers In-App Purchases




Yuka is a free mobile app that allows you to scan the barcodes of food and personal care products and instantly see their impact on your health. A rating and detailed information help you understand the analysis of each product.

When a product has a negative impact on your health, Yuka also recommends similar but healthier alternative products.


Yuka is a 100% independent project : product reviews and recommendations of healthier alternatives are done in an objective way. No brand or manufacturer can influence them in one way or another. Furthermore, there is no in-app advertising. You can access detailed information on our business model on our website (www.yuka.io).


Yuka established a database that contains 2 million food products and 1 million cosmetic products.

Each food product is evaluated according to 3 objective criteria: nutritional quality, presence of additives and organic aspect of the product.

The method to analyse cosmetic products is based on the analysis of all the ingredients of the product. Each ingredient is assigned a risk level according to the latest scientific data.

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! 🥕🥕🥕

Love this app

Ok so I just downloaded this app, and fell in love with it. A very close relative of mine has been trying to eat healthy for the past year or so now and feels like nothing was working. I showed her this app, and that many products she thought were healthy were actually contributing to gaining weight, migranes, and even more conditions. She was ecstatic about this app, and next time she goes to the store this app will be with her.
I personally love how you get recommendations on similar products that are healthier alternatives. Not only that but I feel much better knowing that what I am going to eat In the future is healthy, and tasty.
Some ideas I have for this app are ones that will make it easier to purchase items, for example… let’s say a cereal brand you have been buying products from is not healthy, and you tap on a similar, but healthier alternative, it would make it very convenient if you could tap it and add it to a personalized in app grocery list, for when you go to the store. That way you have a picture of this unfamiliar product along with the name of it.
I am very excited to use this app, and hope it will make my future healthier! Thanks a million!

Everyone needs this app. So important

I’m absolutely obsessed with this app. I’ve had it for a couple weeks now and have managed to scan all of the foods i usually eat. It so scary how many common household foods have dangerous additives. Lots of food in the USA is banned in other countries cause of how dangerous it is. At first it felt a little discouraging when everything I scanned got a bad rating. But the recommendations helped me realize that there are a lot of healthy none expensive alternatives that taste just as great if not better. I’ve convinced my whole family to download the app so they can see what they are putting in their bodies. It’s crazy how even products that are marketed as healthy have a ridiculous amount of hazardous additives. It is SO important the we understand what we are putting in our bodies. We all want to live long healthy lives and this app definitely helps. This app makes it so easy to know and understand what the ingredients mean and how they effect our bodies. I’m so grateful to have found this app. Thank you YUKA for caring about our health!!!
