9/10 (1 Votes)

Recently, the media just keep bombarding us with the message that ultra-processed foods are bad for our health. This demonization makes sense, since it has been shown that these kinds of products contain a large number of artificial ingredients and chemical products that cause illnesses over time, along with addiction.

But how can we avoid them? Advertising often presents a product as being super healthy, only to find out later that it is pretty bad for you. With El CoCo you will be able to instantly know whether you should buy a particular food product or just leave it on the supermarket shelf.

El CoCo helps you to choose which food products to buy, by providing you with simplified and reliable information about their real nutritional value.

Learn to eat healthily

Using this app is very simple. All you have to do is tap the start screen to open up a scanner that works through your Android device’s photo camera. Scan a product’s bar code and you will instantly be able to know whether a food is actually healthy or is simply backed by a wonderful (and deceptive) marketing campaign. This tool is based on two food classification systems recognized by the scientific community:

  • NOVA. This is a system used by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), among other entities, to indicate whether a food is ultra-processed or not. To do so, it has four classification groups.
  • Nutricore. This is like a traffic light that indicates whether a food is healthy or not. It features a color code and a rating from A to E, where A indicates the best nutritional value and E indicates foods that should be avoided.

The two systems are complementary and will provide you with a lot of information about the food you have at home or that you are thinking of buying. Don’t get fooled by the advertising – now you have the tools to avoid it.
