◆ THE 40 MILLION USERS APP ◆
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.
◆ A 100% INDEPENDENT PROJECT ◆
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).
◆ 3 MILLION REFERENCED PRODUCTS ◆
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.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Just the start
I have to say i really enjoy this app. I'm a licensed cosmetologist/esthetician and of course like to be mindful of the products that I'm using on my self but not only that but also on my clients. This app makes it so easy to break down whats in a product so easily. ive shown everyone i know and even paid for the premium version. (this app is consumer funded. company's do not pay them to say their product is this or that) me being superstitious compared what the app said to what the label of ingredients said and its always right.
i know the app is still fairly new and the interface and features it offers outside of just listing ingredients and letting you know if there bad then offering recommendations it doesn't do a whole lot more. I like that it keeps of history of barcode scans, i wish it had a feature to incorporate online shopping. Me personally i dont shop alot in stores and without a physical barcode it makes buying things online still risky. so that could be a cool feature. As well as creating like brands and like ranking them by a collective of what their product scores are. I love this idea of putting the power back in the consumers hands though. knowledge is power, and it starts with our daily habits to really see change. THANK YOU!
