ANDI Guide

Wondering how to choose the healthiest foods? We can help. Simply look for the foods that have high ANDI scores, and you’re set!

ANDI stands for "Aggregate Nutrient Density Index," a scoring system that rates foods on a scale from 1 to 1000 based on nutrient content. ANDI scores are calculated by evaluating an extensive range of micronutrients, including vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidant capacities.
