App Recommendation: Yuka

Have you heard about the Yuka app? It’s a useful tool for making healthier food and beauty product choices. Claiming to be entirely independent, and that its scores and recommendations are not influenced by brands or manufacturers, Yuka provides users with easy-to-understand and transparent information about products from their comprehensive database.

With a quick scan, you can access detailed nutritional information for food items, and learn about any potentially harmful ingredients in beauty and personal care products. If you scan a product that scores poorly, Yuka will offer recommendations for alternative products that are likely to be better for your health.

(Full disclosure: Yuka are not sponsoring us, we just really like the app!)
