What is the Nutri-Score?

Updated 4 months ago by Benoit

Nutri-Score is a rating system developed by international research teams that measures the nutritional value of food products.

To rank each product, the Nutri-Score system measures how much of the following is found in 100 grams of the product:

  • desirable nutrients and foods: fiber, protein, fruits and vegetables
  • nutrients that should be limited: calories, saturated fats, sugar and salt

The Nutri-Score calculation system is explained in detail here.

Once calculated, a product's score is used to assign it a letter and a color:

  • the most nutritious products are ranked A
  • the least nutritious products are ranked E

Nutri-Scores are translated into Yuka ratings as shown in the correspondence table, available here.

The main scientific sources evaluating the Nutri-Score are available here.
