Every product in Food Scores is rated on a scale of 1 (best) to 10 (worst).
We rated more than 80,000 products on three criteria:
We combine these three scores into a single overall product score. We weight a food's nutritional value most heavily, ingredient concerns next and processing relatively lightly.
Here's how to use the database:
If you click on a product, you'll see dials displaying how it stacks up in each of EWG's three scoring factors: nutrition, ingredient concerns, and processing:
You'll also see a bar chart showing how these three factors are combined into a single overall score.
If you click on the dials, you will find more detailed information about how a particular product's score was determined:
Use the bar chart on the left side of every product page to see how the product rates in comparison to other products in the same category.
If you click on any of the bars, this will bring up a page showing all of the products of the same category that scored in that range, making it easy to find better products.
