Frankie your consumer protection advocate researches, rates and reviews on your behalf. Rankings are based on the extent to which products contain:
Ultra processed ingredients
Frankie gives each product an AFK score based on:
Real ingredients are those that are whole foods that haven’t been processed or very minimally. Think seeds, fruits, vegetables, nuts. Minimally processed foods are those that have only had inedible parts removed, have been dried, crushed, ground, roasted, boiled, pasteurised etc.
Ultra processed ingredients
These ingredients are usually derived from foods and additives. Very little real ingredients are left intact. These ingredients can be extracts, derived from further processing such as hydrogenation, hydrolisation etc.
These include colours, preservatives, antioxidants and stabilisers, emulsifiers, flavour enhancers, non sugar sweeteners, firming agents, bulking agents, anti caking agents, glazing agents and humectants.

What I love about the Membership is the Product Reviews – allows for more informed choice when shopping especially where things may be hidden or disguised that i hadn’t known about and then the discussions in the FB Group around recipes to share on that product.
I absolutely love the product reviews – it’s like we are working towards our very own Frankie-endorsed pantry. And it’s awesome to be able to vote on what will be the next product to be reviewed.
Oh it’s so hard to choose my favourite feature of Additive Free Advocates. I’ve so many favourites but if I’m forced to choose one it would be the product reviews as its always an eye opener and so much useful knowledge to gain from it. I love that all the hard work has been done for us so we can easily support the Manufactures who care about our health over profit.
