Why is cheese often poorly rated on Yuka?

Cheese is naturally rich in saturated fat and sodium. Currently, the rating of a food product is 60% based on its nutritional value. The calculation method is based on the Nutri-Score system. It penalizes high levels of saturated fat and sodium. This explains why the majority of cheese does not receive a high rating in the application.

The fabrication method (artisan or industrial) is not taken into account in the rating system, nor are the various labels.

How did we do?
