The Carbon Footprint measures the greenhouse gas emissions during the entire life cycle of a food and is calculated in grams of CO2 equivalent (gCO2 eq) per kilogram or liter of food. For each group of foods, the reported value is the average of the various sources used, while the hatched lines mark the distance between the minimum and maximum values. When a food is normally cooked, the impact of the cooking was added. The average score determines the order of foods from the top (high impact) to the bottom (low impact).
