There has been a major development you should know about that advances the empowerment of consumer knowledge and information with nutrition, food ingredients and labeling – the Food Facts Health Score.
Members and fans of Foodfacts.com have no doubt heard about it by now. FFHS has been in the news and there will be an exciting announcement soon on the expanded reach of this revolutionary score system.
Here’s how it works:
More comprehensive than Weight Watchers, this groundbreaking score system rates over 75,000 food products based on complete nutrition and ingredient value. FFHS is the world’s FIRST rating system to reflect the quality of ingredients in foods in addition to the traditional measures of protein, fat, fiber, vitamins and added sugar.
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. The value given to the product 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.
The FoodFacts Health Score complements 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.
Health-conscious food lovers are urged to take advantage of this important resource. You’ll find it all at Foodfacts.com.
