The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. Their mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment.
EWG has introduced a new online tool, Food Scores, that scores food on three factors: 1.) Nutrition, 2.) Ingredient Concerns, and the 3.) Degree of Processing. Details on the methodology can be found here.
Food Scores includes 80,000 foods, 5,000 ingredients and 1,500 brands, and has taken more than 3-years to produce. Foods are rated on a 1 to 10 scale, with the best foods scoring 1 and the worst foods scoring 10.
