CO₂ score

Precise information on the carbon emissions of the food you buy.

Food – from production to consumption – is one the main causes of climate change. But not all foods are equally to blame.
The production of some foods, such as beef and cheese, releases high amounts of gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous dioxide, etc..) in the atmosphere. These gases are responsible for human-induced climate change. Meanwhile, a plant-based diet tends to produce a relatively low quantity of such gases.
To avoid confusion, the convention is to express the climate change impact (or carbon footprint) in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent released in the atmosphere (CO2eq. or just CO2), which is the dominant greenhouse gas emitted by human activity.

CO2 score

We have created a cutting-edge database of Carbon Emission Categories, inspired by years of scientific research.
Soon, each food available in supermarkets will be assigned to its carbon emission category (these include milk, soy milk, oat milk, etc.).

Health score

Setai health score is based on the most up-to-date scientific research.

To put it in a nutshell: what you eat has a huge impact on your health. Eating healthy foods helps prevent many chronic diseases and contributes to overall well-being.

Based on the Nutri-Score

The Nutri-Score is a rating that classifies
foods and beverages on a scale from A to E.

It was developed by the French National Public Agency and has been officially recommended by health authorities in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain and France. It is based on a scientific formula, which takes into account the amount of nutrients, such as fat and sugars, and their concentration.

Based on Nova + organic

The Nova Food Classification System considers the level of processing of each food product. An extra point is assigned to organic products.
Nova is based on the demonstrated correlation between consumption of highly-processed food and the risk of developing cancer. It rates food products on a scale from 1 (minimally processed foods) to 4 (ultra-processed foods). The Nova Classification is used and recognized by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation) and the United Nations. Moreover, scientific evidence indicates that organic food consumption may reduce the risk of allergic disease, overweight and obesity. Also, in organic agricolture the use of pesticides is restricted, and  the nutrient composition is richer than non-organic food.
