      What is the Nutri-Score?


      The Nutri-Score is a logo on the overall nutritional quality of products.

      The score from A to E is calculated based on nutrients and foods to favor (proteins, fiber, fruits, vegetables and legumes ...) and nutrients to limit (calories, saturated fat, sugars, salt). The score is calculated from the data of the nutrition facts table and the composition data (fruits, vegetables and legumes).

    Negative points: 9/55

      Calories

      3/10 points (1223kJ)

      Energy intakes above energy requirements are associated with increased risks of weight gain, overweight, obesity, and consequently risk of diet-related chronic diseases.

    • icon

      Sugar

      0/15 points (3g)

      A high consumption of sugar can cause weight gain and tooth decay. It also augments the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardio-vascular diseases.

      A high consumption of salt (or sodium) can cause raised blood pressure, which can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.

    Good for agricultural biodiversity

    Contains neglected or underutilized crops: Broad bean
    Did you know?

    Since 1900, 75% of plant diversity has been lost as farmers around the world have abandoned local varieties for high-yielding varieties adapted to mass industrial processing. As a result, 60 % of human energy intake in the world comes from only 3 species: wheat, rice and corn.

    Why it matters

    The lack of variety of crops makes our food supply more vulnerable to pests, diseases and climate change.

    What you can do

    Consuming diverse cereals, legumes, vegetables and fruits contributes to:

    • preserving neglected and underutilized species
    • rural development and support of local farmers and companies
    • preserving of diversified landscapes
    • food security
    • and your health!

    Open Food Facts participates in the European project DIVINFOOD (funded from European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme). DIVINFOOD aims to develop food chains that value under-utilised agrobiodiversity in order to act against the decline of biodiversity and to meet the growing expectations of consumers for healthy, local products that contribute to sustainable food systems.
