Recently new website called GoodGuide.com helps consumers find different types of products that are healthy, green and socially responsible. Now they have just started a rating system for food. To see what GoodGuide is all about visit their web
GoodGuide ratings range from 0 to 10 and indicate how a product performs on a comprehensive set of health, environmental and social metrics. The higher the score, the better the product. If you are looking to switch to a better product, GoodGuide’s summary rating can be used to easily identify the best products in a category. If you are looking for more refined ratings, drill down from our summary rating to focus on a product’s health performance, or a company’s environmental or social performance.
In the future, GoodGuide will have tools to let consumers screen this data through their own personal preferences, allowing them to “filter” and search for products and companies that match their specific values.
How? The NuVal System scores food on a scale of 1-100. The higher the NuVal Score, the better the nutrition. It’s that simple. And it’s coming to every aisle of your favorite grocery stores – right there on the shelf tag. Now you can compare overall nutrition the same way you compare price. You can even compare apples and oranges.
For a brief overview of our system that’s ready to print, check out our new brochure. For tips on how to use the NuVal System, visit Shop with NuVal. To find out which stores currently carry NuVal Scores, go to Where to Find NuVal.
How the Scoring Works
NuVal Scores summarize comprehensive nutritional information in one simple number between 1 and 100. Each NuVal Score takes into account more than just the nutrition fact panel. It considers 30-plus nutrients and nutrition factors – the good (protein, calcium, vitamins) and the not-so-good (sugar, sodium, cholesterol). And then it boils it down into a simple, easy-to-use number; a number you can trust to make better decisions about nutrition in just a few seconds.
There’s a lot more to the science behind the NuVal System than what we’ve explained here. To learn more about it – and the independent panel of nutrition and medical experts who developed it – visit The Science Behind NuVal.
