Finally, an easy way to find out what’s in your food

So what’s in the food you eat? How much sugar is in that cookie? Which foods contain arsenic? The Environmental Working Group spent 3 years to create a database of 80,000 products with all their ingredients. Foods get a score of 1 through 10 (1 is the best) based on how well they perform in three categories: nutrition, processing, and “ingredients of concern”. This is helpful, but it’s probably best—and certainly easier— to eat only fresh produce that has not been touched by the food industry.
