What is the Nutri-Score and how does it work?
The Nutri-Score is a voluntary food label intended to help consumers make healthier choices when buying groceries. It is calculated on the basis of the nutritional values per 100 g of the product at the time it is sold to consumers.
Using a scale from A (green) to E (red), the Nutri-Score shows how balanced the composition of a foodstuff is. This allows similar foods in a category to be compared at a glance.
The Nutri-Score is science-based and was developed by independent researchers. The calculation takes account of both positive and negative ingredients, according to which the product is assigned a rating on the scale of A (= balanced) to E (= not balanced).
  • The positive aspects include the amount of fruit, vegetables, pulses, nuts, certain oils (rapeseed, walnut and olive oil), dietary fibre and protein.
  • High levels of sugar, salt, saturated fatty acids and energy have a negative effect on the calculation.
Unprocessed products such as fruit and vegetables, raw meat and honey are not labelled with a Nutri-Score.
Points to note:
The Nutri-Score is used to compare similar foods within a product category. This means that it shows which of a range of ready meals has the more beneficial composition. It is not possible to compare products in different categories, such as yoghurt and bread.
However, a diet made up of only products in the green zone is not necessarily balanced. The Nutri-Score is intended to supplement the recommendations of the Swiss food pyramid, according to which all levels should be included in suitable quantities in a balanced diet.
