Yuka is an app that analyses food or cosmetic products. Yuka was launched in 2017 in France. It is a mobile-based application for analysing food data. Hence, the mobile phone application is most widely used in France. As of today, it is also available in Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Moreover, they hope to spread to the United States and Canada before the end of the year.
You may already be tormented when you shop to know which product you prefer in a department. Yuka helps you understand whether other similar products are better for your health via the label.
Hence, for unrecognised products, users get the opportunity to contribute by adding product information directly to the application and attaching photo evidence.
Yuka puts companies under pressure
Yuka has a particular playful side that appears quickly. Knowing what’s on the plates becomes a priority for many consumers, who should find happiness with the application’s colourful and appealing design.
Moreover, some scans ensure surprising discoveries in the drinks and salt section.
Yuka app food ranking
contrex mineral water is furnished with a light green “excellent”, 100/100 indicator, with only one indication: 0 g of salt.
the direction of the condiments: the sea salt la baleine collects a “mediocre” orange light, and the grade goes down to 42/100 because the salt is… too salty!
presence of dubious additives
Moment of embarrassment by noticing the “presence of dubious additives” without further clarification. French supermarket chain Intermarché said it would remove 140 food additives by the end of 2020, changing 900 food recipes. They will review their products with the popular phone application Yuka used by 11 million people in France to scan products and determine what additives are in them.
As a fact, Yuka says that at least 95% of its users stopped buying products with controversial additives. According to an impact study they conducted with 230,000 users.
We started to use Yuka in 2019.
