Want to know if your food is sustainable, wholesome, and honest? HowGood helps you find foods you can feel good about with simple ratings backed by extensive research. Search or scan product barcodes to quickly access the HowGood database of over 200,000 food product ratings.
Each product in the database undergoes rigorous research by the HowGood team and is given a rating on its impact across three benchmarks: Growing Guidelines, Processing Practices, and Company Conduct.
// Standards Not Met - meets 0 of 3 benchmarks
// GOOD - meets 1 of 3 benchmarks
// GREAT - meets 2 of 3 benchmarks
// BEST - meets 3 of 3 benchmarks
The HowGood ratings will show you which items are environmentally friendly, minimally processed, and ethically produced, helping you choose the products that meet your standards and align with your values.
Founded in 2007, HowGood is an independent research organization that rates food products on their environmental and social impact.

Amazing app leading to healthier eating!!
I downloaded this on the recommendation of a friend, and I have to say, it has lead not only to healthier living, but more conscious decisions in the store generally.
It's actually amazing this hasn't come out earlier, as it sort of is a dream come true for those who really do care about sustainability and conscious trade on all levels.
Plus, it's always being updated daily, so they are on top of it!!! I cannot recommend highly enough!!
Lots of Potential
It’s an ok app, but could use a couple improvements. The app should have settings to only filter the features that you care about. For example, say you care about the product being environmentally-friendly but don’t care about it being 100% organic. You should be able to look at products that are environmentally-friendly but not organic. Also, they should show a general price on each item to be able to compare. Last, they should show some of the main brands such as Kirkland or Kellogg even if they don’t meet the app’s standards.
Thoroughly impressed with the app and concept. Eliminates guesswork, and adds a level of education and empowerment to shopping that I continue to look forward to. Helps to make more intelligent food choices, in turn adding peace of mind. Smart company doing great things!
