Help

"Energy (kcal)"

Enter the energy amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product, in kcal. Enter only a figure (no unit).

"Total fat (g)"

Enter the total fat amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product, in g. Enter only a figure (no unit).

"Saturated + trans fat (g)"

For 100 g or 100 mL of the product, enter the sum of the amount of saturated fats plus the amount of trans fats (in g). If no data is available for trans, you can use the amount for saturated fats as an approximation. Enter only a figure (no unit).

"Added sugars (g)"

Added sugars include all mono- and di-saccharides added to foods by the manufacturer or the consumer. It excludes lactose provided by milk products and sugars naturally occurring in fruits.
Enter the added sugars amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product (in g). Enter only a value (no unit). If your product is neither a dairy product nor a fruit product, you can use the simple sugars amount as a good approximation of added sugars amount. Enter only a figure (no unit).

"Added sodium (mg)"

Enter the added sodium amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product (in mg). Enter only a figure (no unit).
Use the total sodium amount if you do not know the amount of intrinsic sodium. Note that except for products with a very low energy content for 100 g such as low fat milk products or raw vegetables, intrinsic sodium content of the raw product is usually very low compared to added sodium content, so that you can use the total sodium amount as a good approximation.

"Serving size (g)"

Enter the usual serving size for your product (no unit).

"Calcium (mg)"

Enter the calcium amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product (in mg). Enter only a figure (no unit).

"Iron (mg)"

Enter the iron amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product (in mg). Enter only a figure (no unit).

"PUFA (g)"

Enter the polyunsaturated fatty acids amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product (in g). Enter only a figure (no unit).

"Fibers (g)"

Enter the fibers amount for 100 g or 100 mL of the product (in g). Enter only a figure (no unit).

Scores

For each nutrient the product is attributed a score between -1 (worst) and +1 (best). The score is calculated by comparison of the product’s content of the nutrient with the European recommendations for the daily consumption of the nutrient and with the actual current consumption of the nutrient in Europe. Please refer to the “Method” section for details.
