Products are awarded a nutrition grade of A, B, C, or D by an automatic algorithm that was developed by scientists, dietitians, and concerned parents. Minimally processed, real foods with intrinsic nutrients will score better than processed foods that are poor in built-in nutrients. Our analysis is based on information that appears on a product’s package – the nutrition facts panel and the ingredient list. Fooducate does not receive any additional input from manufacturers.
Fooducate is NOT funded by food manufacturers, supplement companies, diets, or any sort of magic pill.
