Just this Monday, the Environmental Working Group launched the Food Scores Database. This is a new web service which ranks branded grocery items on their nutrition and ingredients. The database includes over 80,000 items sold in grocery stores nationally. The details can provide users with information about how processed the food is, information on oils, dyes, preservatives, pesticides, organically raised, added sugars, gluten and much more. The foods are then analyzed and scaled 1-10, with 1 being the most nutritious food, and decreasing in nutritional value from there.
Check this out to learn more about the foods in your home, or foods that you have thought about purchasing.
