If you’re concerned about the foods you eat, you should know about the innovative Food Facts Health Score. We’re pleased to report that Foodfacts.com has had an amazing response from consumers and manufacturers since the recent launch of the Food Facts Health Score.
Here’s what you should know:
When FoodFacts.com members (membership is FREE) search for a food product in the database of over 75,000 food products, the FoodFacts Health Score will appear below the item’s nutrition facts with a color coded scale. The number and color coding allows the user to quickly and easily evaluate a food’s nutrition, vitamins and ingredients content and determine if that food is a healthful addition to his or her diet — without struggling to comprehend complex charts and ingredient lists. The user can then click on the scale to see why the product received the rating it did.
This innovative new Health Score evaluates foods based on multiple dimensions of nutrition and assigns those foods a numeric rating between 0 and 100 (zero being least nutritious and 100 being best). This system goes above and beyond current food rating programs such as the Weight Watchers Point System by offering a more complete assessment of food nutrition and ingredients value. The FoodFacts Health Score helps users gauge not just calories and fiber, but the products ingredients and vitamins that are essential building blocks for healthier food. FoodFacts.com is the only food and nutrition resource in the world to offer this.
The FoodFacts Health Score rounds out FoodFacts.com’s original diet and food allergy management tools, which include a powerful search function that eliminates unwanted ingredients, a quick recipe finder and other helpful features. Members can save foods that they want to buy, and make shopping lists that can be printed, e-mailed or sent to a phone. And now, the FoodFacts Health Score makes it easier for users to choose the best possible foods — and achieve the highest level of health.
