The Nutrition Rating provides you with an easy-to-understand color code that shows the quality of your foods. This helps you form new, positive eating habits.
It marks foods with one of the three color-coded labels based on their quality:
- Recommended (green) – Suitable for daily consumption
- Okay (yellow) – Suitable for occasional consumption
- Discouraged (red) – Suitable for minimal consumption
It is based on a machine learning model that includes reviews of more than 10,000 different foods, checked independently by dietitians.
What criteria are used for the Nutrition Rating?
When you click on a specific food, you see a list of the nutrients the food is high in. The list considers the following nutrients:
- Nutrients you should eat often: protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals (per 100 cal)
- Nutrients you should not eat too much of: saturated fat, sugar and sodium (per 100 g)
What does "high in" mean?
The Nutrition Rating marks all foods with an above-threshold amount of listed nutrients.
Here are some examples. If the food has…
- …more than 5 g of protein per 100 cal it is “high in protein” and you will see protein listed under the Nutrition Rating label
- …more than 22.5 g of sugar per 100 g it is “high in sugar” and you will see sugar listed under the Nutrition Rating label
- …more than 5 g of saturated fat per 100 g it is “high in saturated fat” and you will see saturated fat listed under the Nutrition Rating label
- …more than 3 g of fiber per 100 cal it is “high in fiber” and you will see fiber listed under the Nutrition Rating label
The nutrients are marked with colored dots according to their quality:
Keep in mind: The Nutrition Rating is based on a single serving size and does not take into account your special dietary needs (allergies, preferences, nutrition plan…). This tool gives you an idea of the nutrient quality of the foods you choose, regardless of your individual plan (e.g. choosing a Keto diet plan won’t change the rating). For a balanced diet adjust the amounts of food you eat according to your caloric expenditure.
