Everyone should have this app downloaded
Where to start? I’ve had this app for only a few days now, and have been going around my house scanning absolutely everything and anything. Any food I buy, I now know whether it’s terrible for me, or if it’s a good source of XYZ. Not only is it great for finding what foods to buy, but beauty products as well. The shampoo, body wash, and conditioner I’ve been using I’ve now found is harmful and contains tons of harmful chemicals. Same with my deodorant. The suggestions is just an added bonus, which is great to see what alternatives I should be using. My brother said that since he’d been using my (harmful) body wash, he’s been breaking out with acne. We had no idea why, but we now suspect it was because of the body wash. I’m extremely comforted to know as well that the app is funded solely by the users; the results aren’t swayed by big name brands or companies paying Yuka to alter the results. Honestly, I’m a walking ad for this app now. I’ve shown coworkers, roommates, and my family. I think absolutely everyone should have this app, in a world where the consumer is constantly lied to and misled on the purchases they’re making. Yuka, God bless you. You are doing amazing, amazing work. I’ve never felt so strongly about an app before. The fact that I’m writing this review says a lot to anyone who knows me. Thank you Yuka, you have changed my life forever!
Wow! We are so touched by your feedback, a huge thank you!
So helpful with mindfulness!
I discovered this app on Tiktok about a week ago and I’m blown away by how much I have learned already. It is so so so helpful for my health journey to be able to see all the ingredients in my diet. People always say not to eat anything with ingredients you can’t pronounce, but who actually has the time to look up all these scary ingredients? This app is doing the work for you and making it a CONVENIENT way to make more conscious choices while grocery shopping. The blurbs of information regarding why an ingredient is bad or good is very easy to understand (in my opinion) and it is giving me a lot to think about in my life. I don’t want to put these things into my body, especially if they can build up and cause problems to me later in life. It’s shocking to see what kinds of things are being absorbed into my body. Packaging and marketing of products can be VERY misleading and I’m glad I have the science in this app to help me when all the choices of products may be misleading me.
One thing to note is that it is very important to be reading WHY the products are bad, because Yuka is not only looking at the harmful things but also taking into account nutrition. I don’t mind eating something that’s way too fatty for me (in moderation) as long as it doesn’t have anything harmful
The foods I eat have improved so much because of this app
I wish I could say something short and simple where you would try this app. Maybe you’re like me and try to eat healthy but not entirely sure of what you’re putting into your body. Maybe like me you’ve tried some food nutrition apps but find them to be confusing or just out to spam you. Maybe you too think that because the packaging looks healthy, the food is healthy. NOT SO!! I have learned a lot about that from Yuka. This app has really improved my life.
Even though I could use it for free, I am so grateful that I donated to them anyway. I want this app to be around for my kids and grandkids so that they can have a better life.
I try to tell everyone about Yuka and even demonstrate it to random people in the grocery store. The app and its developers are giving millions of people, tons of easy to understand food data and a chance to really improve quality of life FOR FREE. The app is very fast, easy to use, works just like they describe, and it helps with food choices.
Honestly, you won’t regret getting it but your body will regret if you don’t use it.
