    By Polar209

  • Was looking for such an app 5/5

    By Online dating pro
    Thanks for existing
  • What an eye opener! We’ve been poisoning our bodies for years 5/5

    By Norvanna
    Now this app easily arms us with the right info to make the right decisions. My garbage bags are overflowing this morning with products I thought were good and safe and turns out they were anything but! Sad to be throwing so much out but glad to be now aware!
  • How does this have such a good rating?! 2/5

    By jampcat9
    I’ve scanned about 8 products so far and none of the recommendations have been comparable to the original. Example: I scanned Fairytales lice prevention conditioner. The first recommendation was a brunette dry shampoo spray ?!!? A less minor one: I scanned a sunscreen lip balm- none of the recommended lip balms had sunscreen in them. Unfortunately this app hasn’t been helpful to me at all.
  • App keeps continuously crashing! 2/5

    By keysahazam
    I have an iPhone that is up To date and the app keeps crashing, it will hardly stay open to let me search!
  • Yuka 5/5

  • Great app! 5/5

    By beauty_ismy_name
    I really love this app so much. It’s very informative and easy to use. I’ve learned a lot of what I’ve been putting in my body (which I regret) ever since I started using this app. 10 out of 10 for me!
  • Highly recommend 5/5

    By Kelli Kolo
    I thought I was eating healthy, making good choices in terms of fruits and vegetables and low-fat foods, but I had no idea that some of the “healthiest“ foods were horrible for me due to additives and preservatives. This app is invaluable and has changed the way I eat!
  • I’m intrigued 5/5

    By #1 BigGuy
    This is very interesting. I’m going to make some changes thanks to this app.
  • If Perfection Was An App 5/5

    By aaallleeeccc333
    I don’t usually write reviews unless it’s REALLY bad or REALLY good. I think this app is an example of how EVERY APP SHOULD BE. I know it might sound like I’m over hyping it but I have a unconscious habit of noticing and critiquing the smallest of details. Spotless.
  • Love it 5/5

    By juancarlosmarroquik
    amazing app for diet and to know what to replace it with instead
  • Please release it in India 5/5

    By ghost_god
    I have been using it for over a year and invited a bunch of friends. Many of family and friends are interested in using it in India. Excellent app.
  • Love the app! 5/5

    By Christina Steele
    Very helpful providing substitutes for good food.
  • Love 5/5

    By 4sistas
    Great app, easy to use and very informative. I don’t want to pay a yearly subscription but if developers want to charge a one time fee I would/will be happy to pay.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Goujoujinsama
    Great if used correctly. Make sure to compare similar products to check if any information is outdated. You can upload new ingredients easily. No problems at all.
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Valori W
    I absolutely love this app. I just have to scan it and it’ll tell me whether or not it is good or bad, and it gives me recommendations for something better. It also tells me the reasons why one of my products is bad. I also love how you get to choose how much you want to pay for the membership to search up products and it tries to make it as affordable as possible. I love this app, it is super helpful!! It’s free too! :)
  • GET THIS APP 5/5

    By sydpa23
    This app is such a game changer. I was using for a while and decided recently to upgrade to premium because of how awesome this app is. It’s super helpful and super easy to use! I love how I can find the ingredients and understand them more. I’m the person that’s always looking at the ingredients and trying to determine whether to by something based on it. So rather than being indecisive, I scan the product, get a rating on if it’s good or bad (based on ingredients) and make my decision much faster. Thanks Yuka!
  • Wow 5/5

    By murdo25
    This is a really impressive app! The response time is wicked fast! So you can scan lots of things in succession!

  • Obsessed 5/5

    By k326!
    I absolutely love this app! It’s great for my kid to see the color codes too, it’s helped us get him away from the junk food I’ve been telling him is bad.. but now he can see it and willingly decides not to eat it! Amazing app so helpful!!
  • Wow! 5/5

  • Best app ever! 5/5

    By yaggaaaaa2021
    I love this app ! I take it grocery shopping with me and scan whatever I want and try to only get 80/100 and higher!
  • Is this app really safe? 1/5

    By Drvgvse
    This app said that products with talc are safe and we all know that talc is NOT SAFE FOR ANYONE. But this app gave them an “excellent score” smh .
  • Great Concept…but… 3/5

    By Saphire_1232
    Okay. So I love the concept of this app, and I love the countless number of products registered into its database! It has a great ability to spot the nutritional benefits in everything despite the product. However I’m, personally, not a fan of the good/bad ratings that the products are labeled with. It does make things much simpler to categorize, I’m just not too sure it’s a great idea to villainize foods based on the number of calories they have, nutritional info.. so on and so forth. Just my intake on it^^ I also found that some products I’ve done extensive research on, in regards to health, were considered “bad”. When in reality, they were one of the most nutritionally dense foods I’ve ever found! Purely Elizabeth granola for example! I just wonder whether or not this app actually takes into account a products ingredients and not just the number of calories or how many grams of sugar or carbs are in it. Perhaps the ingredient lists need to be updated…? Please do correct me if I’m wrong:)
  • Wow! 5/5

    By Shru117
    I’m pretty conscious about the food I buy but after a quick scan of things in the house I realized I’ve been using some not so great cosmetics! Sad an app like this needs to exist to begin with, but I’m glad it does. I’ll be using it to make better purchases in the future!
  • Really good 4/5

    By ambarz
    I don’t get why they rate Johnson and Johnson's baby powder so good if we all know how bad talc is. But overall, really good app.
  • A Game Changer! 5/5

    By Sierre N
    I absolutely love this app! It has changed the way I buy things for myself and my children. A must have app!
  • Its okay 5/5

    By hrbcfh
    It kinda makes me scared of what i eat but i feel fine unless its long term. But i still will eat whatever
  • We need Arabic Language 5/5

    By Ammz188
    💔
  • Amazing app! 5/5

    By Twiggletss
    We unfortunately really do not have an insight into our food anymore. I fret such as ‘natural flavours’ appera good, but in reality are typically harmful chemicals. This app gives you the long desired insight that you need to see what you are choosing to put into your body
  • Good start but needs work 2/5

    By Nb92661
    This app is somewhat helpful but it is not 100% accurate. I’ve had to correct several products that were rated “Excellent”, but were in fact “Bad”. The ingredients were incorrect. They need to limit users from adding products if they submit incorrect ingredients. Then also give the people who correct products a star rating or something that differentials the people submitting inaccurate info from the people who submit the correct info. Also they need to list the food ingredients similar to how they list beauty products ingredients. How will we know if someone has listed the proper food ingredients when they are not visible to the user. I hate how reporting into forces use of the apple mail app. This is so archaic are inconvenient. I use gmail so I will not install the apple mail app because the developers can’t figure out how to let you report info any other way. Please fix! I have several more suggestions but I’ll write another review later.
  • Yuka app excellent 5/5

    By Sunshine Hermosa
    I didn’t know this many foods I was eating had hazardous additives in them.
  • Fear mongering 2/5

    By Brishney
    I got this app mostly out of curiosity. While the ingredients aspect is accurate, the way they are presented is more about scaring people than being informative. Firstly, it will tell you that a drink with 5 calories is “too caloric” and lists it as a negative. Secondly, it will tell you scientific names for ingredients and then claim that they are more dangerous than they actually are. I’ve just noticed a lot of inconsistency with how the app addresses certain ingredients. It really looks as though the app is trying to instill unnecessary fear in consumers. If you were to live by this app you would never eat anything ever.
  • Life changing… 5/5

    By Pastafaz
    To say that this app is my favorite of all time doesn’t express enough how much I love it. What a great idea -
  • So awesome 5/5
