While we were browsing through the Google Play Store, we stumbled upon yet another really interesting app. This one is called ‘Yuka’, and it’s actually a food-scanning Android app. Well, it can also scan cosmetic products, so it’s not exclusive to food products.

Yuka is a truly useful food-scanning app that can also scan cosmetic products

In any case, all you have to do is scan the barcode on any given product, and the app will then show you its ingredients. That’s not the best part, though. In addition to that, it will provide you with a rating, showing you how good or bad a specific product is for your health.

It will mark it as excellent, good, mediocre, or poor. It will offer you more details on it as well, so that you understand the score it has received. The company evaluates every food product according to three criteria, nutritional value, additives, and the organic dimension.

In terms of cosmetic products, the scoring method relies on analyzing the ingredients. Every one of its ingredients comes with a level of risk, based on current scientific research.

It also has a useful product recommendation feature

As if that’s not enough, for every product that you scan, and gets a negative grade, Yuka will recommend a similar product as an alternative. Its recommended product will, of course, have a higher grade.

This app can be quite useful for basically anyone. It can help you avoid unhealthy products in general. It can also help people with diabetes, celiac disease, allergies, and so on.

The app itself also looks really nice. Its design is simplistic, and the focus is on the products themselves. Everything is well spaced-out, and easy to read, while the app is really easy to navigate.

Yuka is free to use, though do note there are in-app purchases that you can delve into. If you’re interested in trying it out, you can access it via the Play Store, we’ve included the link below. There are also some official screenshots you can check out in the gallery below.
