Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of food ingredients, and rightly so. Millions of people in the United States have discovered a propensity for food allergies, or – at the very least – food sensitivities.
At the forefront of this movement are nutrition scoring systems. A nutrition scoring system will provide consumers with objective nutrition facts, and help the consumer to make healthy eating choices.
Foodfacts.com has the led the way with its revolutionary, unique food scoring system. Known as the Food Facts Health Score, it also appears on an increasing number of food products, allowing for good nutrition and healthy food shopping.
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.
More comprehensive than Weight Watchers, the groundbreaking Food Facts Health Score system rates over 75,000 food products based on complete nutrition and ingredient value. FFHS is an innovative scoring system that 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, including the Weight Watchers Point System, by offering a more complete assessment of food nutrition and ingredients value across brands. The Food Facts Health Score helps users gauge not just calories and fiber, but product ingredients and vitamins that are essential building blocks for healthier food. Foodfacts.com is the only one in the world to do this. It goes way beyond the conventional information available from a nutrition facts labels panel.
