EWG's Healthy Living By Environmental Working Group

From food to shampoo – we are exposed to chemicals every second, yet we know very little about them. To navigate this complicated world and make safer choices, EWG combined two of our most popular resources to form our Healthy Living App.

Now, the product health and safety ratings for over 200,000 food and cosmetics products are simply one click away.

It’s that simple. How do we know what we’re eating, really? There are so many claims on food labels these days, and ingredients no one can pronounce.
We created EWG’s Food Scores because we all want to know what we’re putting in our bodies. Food Scores rates more than 80,000 foods, 5,000 ingredients and 1,500 brands.
Many other food apps rate food products on nutrition, but EWG went two steps further. Products are rated based on three elements: nutrition, ingredient concerns and degree of processing. We combine these three scores into a single overall product score.
We weigh nutrition most heavily, ingredient concerns next and processing relatively lightly. We rate all foods on a 1 to 10 scale, with the best foods scoring a 1 and the worst foods scoring a 10.
