Catherine reviews many new foods, supplements and dietary products for no payment. It's part of her role as a nutritionist and dietitian as it helps shoppers understand the pros and cons before they buy. However, if you have a product you would like Catherine to review, why not request a Sponsored Product Review?

Foodwatch Review Criteria

clipboardCatherine's Reviews have four main areas – nutrition, convenience, taste and sustainability. Nutrition is our big thing so it gets a score out of 20, then Taste, Convenience and Sustainability each get a score out of 10. This gives an overall score out of 50 to earn a Foodwatch Apple rating.

Foodwatch Apples range from 0 Apples (a terrible score) up to 10 Apples (brilliant).
