Terms of Use and Disclaimer

TrueFood is a proof of concept, determining the value of Big Data and Machine Learning in the food space. All the recommendations in TrueFood are data-driven and automated by machine learning, based on our research on food ultra-processing.

TrueFood is a prototype, hence it operates with minor margins of error in the scores and harmonized food categories. Some of the observed variability is rooted in the fact that the FDA requires food companies to provide concentrations for only 12 nutrients, hence not providing the concentrations of food additives and other chemicals used in branded products.

Based on your feedback, we plan to continuously improve TrueFood to empower consumers.
