The Health Score is calculated using a unique, patent-pending algorithm that combines traditional measures of nutrition facts along with quality of ingredients, while excluding any personal bias or prejudice.  No manufacturers have an input on our score, the product’s taste is not a consideration, and we don’t score comparatively to other products.  The score is not meant to be a final judgment on a product, but a guideline to help consumers navigate the often confusing world of ingredient lists and nutritional labels.
