¡Compare la calidad nutricional de los productos alimenticios con el Nutri-Score!

¿Qué es Nutri-Score?

NutriScore

El Nutri-Score es un logotipo que muestra la calidad nutricional de los productos alimenticios con grados de A a E. Con el NutriScore, los productos pueden ser comparados fácilmente y rápidamente.

May 2019: you can see the Nutri-Score with the Open Food Facts app but it is currently optional on the front of food products. You can ask the European commission to make its display mandatory on the front of food products.

¿Cómo se calcula Nutri-Score?

El grado de Nutri-Score está determinado por la cantidad de nutrientes saludables y poco saludables:

Puntos positivos: la proporción de frutas, verduras y nueces, fibras y proteínas (los niveles altos son considerados buenos para la salud).

Puntos negativos: energía, grasa saturada, azúcares, sodio (niveles altos se consideran poco saludables)

La fórmula detallada Nutri-Score está disponible públicamente en el sitio web de Santé publique France.

¿Cómo puedo ver el Nutri-Score de los productos alimenticios?

El Nutri-Score aparece en la etiqueta de los productos alimenticios solo en algunos países y para un número limitado de marcas actualmente, ¡pero se computa para todos los productos de todos los países en Open Food Facts desde 2014!

Puedes ver el Nutri-Score de productos alimenticios con la aplicación móvil Open Food Facts de iPhone y Android, y en el sitio web Open Food Facts. Si el producto aún no está en Open Food Facts, puede agregarlo en un minuto agregando los datos nutricionales y seleccionando una categoría, y el Nutri-Score será calculado y mostrado instantáneamente.

Compare the Nutri-Score of products on the Open Food Facts Web site

On Open Food Facts, you can choose a category of products or a brand and list the Nutri-Score grades, and then explore the corresponding products. Use the "Explore products by..." blue button and select "Nutrition grades".

On Open Food Facts, you can also create in a few clicks graphs that show the Nutri-Score of products. Choose a criteria like a category of products, and the nutrition facts that you are interested in (e.g. sugars and fat), then check the box "Use the nutrition grades colors".

Who created the Nutri-Score?

Nutri-Score has been proposed by EREN, a French public nutrition research team, led by Professor Serge Hercberg. It is based on the FSA nutritional score created by the Food Standards Agency in the UK.

The Nutri-Score is presented in the 2013 report "Proposals for a new impetus to the French public health nutrition policy in the framework of the National Health Strategy" (pdf). Professor Serge Hercberg advocates for the adoption of a system of grades from A to E on the front of food products to allow to easily compare the nutritional quality of products.

Which countries have adopted the Nutri-Score ?

The Nutri-Score has been adopted in France in 2016, and in Belgium and Spain in 2018. Some producers in Germany are also using the Nutri-Score. The Nutri-Score is optional in these countries, but a growing number of food manufacturers are displaying it on their products:

Research teams in other countries, like Mexico, are also conducting research based on Nutri-Score.

The #PRONUTRISCORE Petition: Consumers across the EU are joining forces for 1 million signatures

UFC-Que Choisir (France), Test-Achat (Belgium), VZBV (Germany), Consumentenbond (The Netherlands), OCU (Spain), Federajca Konsumentow (Poland) and EKPIZO (Greece), members of the European Bureau of Consumer Associations (BEUC) have teamed up to ask the EU commission to make the Nutri-Score compulsory on food packagings.

We are asking the European Commission to impose simplified ‘Nutriscore’ labelling on food products, to guarantee that consumers are provided with quality nutritional information and to protect their health.

  1. Make nutritional labelling easier to read and understand, so that the nutritional value of a food can be understood at a glance in the face of the diversity of food supply;
  2. Take action on public health issues by encouraging professionals to improve the composition of their products;
  3. Harmonise nutritional information at European level by imposing a single official labelling system, thereby putting an end to the confusion experienced by European consumers when faced by the plethora of existing logos.
