Why are some products not recognized?

Some products are not recognized because they're products that Yuka is unable to evaluate based on their very specific ingredients:

  • Alcohol
  • Sugar
  • Infant formula
  • Protein supplements
  • Pet food
  • Products with no nutritional value
  • Products whose lists of ingredients are in a language other than French, English or Spanish.
  • Products sold by weight which have a specific bar code for weight that's not unique and does not allow the product to be identified
  • Dietary supplements
  • Cleaning products
  • Diapers
  • Tampons and pads
  • Medications

If unrecognized products are traditional food and cosmetic products, you can add them directly in the application. To do this, click on "Fill in the information", then follow the instructions listed.

How did we do?

Does Yuka foresee integrating the environmental or social impact of products?
