    • 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!

Amazing! But…

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.
