It’s interesting but unfortunate to learn that many common food items and beverages we take for common, and consume every day, have absolutely no nutritional value.
Diet colas for example. A review of the Foodfacts.com site (membership is FREE, by the way), reveals that diet colas contain many potentially harmful ingredients and contains no vitamins or minerals. But here’s the kicker: diet cola has a Food Facts Health Score of only 19! The reaspon is that the FoodFacts Health Score evaluated diet cola using a unique algorithm that combines traditional measures of nutrition facts along with the quality of ingredients. FFHS is designed to help you find the highest quality and nutrition amongst brands quickly and easily.
Pure orange juice, on the other hand, yields much better results: A Food Facts Health Score of 94. It’s high in protein, potassium and vitamins.
The Food Facts Health Score is truly revolutionary and unique. Once you join Foodfacts.com, it’s so easy to type in the description or name of a product to learn its score. It’s also important to note that Foodfacts.com has over 800 controversial ingredients in our database.
FFHS complements Foodfacts.com’s original diet and food allergy management tools, which includes 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.
