  • 3 tsp of sugars per serving
    This includes both naturally occurring and added sugars.According to the USDA, every man woman and child in the US consumes approximately 80 pounds of caloric sweeteners per year! That works out to 25 tsp of sugars per day, or 400 extra calories!
  • Salty! Has over 20% of the daily max
    Americans consume 4000 mg of sodium daily when the maximum recommended amount is 2300mg for healthy adults. Many people should not exceed 1500mg. Most of the sodium (65%) in our diet comes from processed foods, not home cooking or the salt shaker. Excess sodium intake increases blood pressure, causes hypertension and other heart problems. That's why most of us need to cut back.
  • Learn about industrial caramel coloring
    Homemade caramel is made by melting sugar in a saucepan. Brown coloring in sodas and some other products is not the same thing.Industrial caramel coloring is made by reacting sugars with ammonia and sulfites under high pressure and temperatures. The chemical reactions create 4-methylimidazole, which in government-conducted studies caused lung, liver, or thyroid cancer or leukemia in laboratory mice or rats. This is why California recently required foods containing caramel color to be labeled as potential cancer-causing agents. But you won't see this warning label any time soon - manufacturers simply reduced the use of caramel color enough that the labeling requirements no longer applied.Caramel color varies slightly between products - when in beer, sauces or baked goods it has just ammonia and when used in soft drinks, it has both sulfites and ammonia. Neither one is a "good" option.Bottom line: Choose something else, less controversial.
  • Save $$$ and your health with beans!
    Good choice! Beans are extremely healthy and economical. A 15 oz. heat n’ eat can of beans cost about $1.25 and serves 3 people. It has just 3 ingredients: Beans, water and salt. At $0.42 per diner, you get 27% of your daily fiber requirements and 7 grams of protein. And there are now BHT free packages for canned beans.Dry beans are even cheaper and healthier if you prepare your own. A 16 oz. bag of dry black beans goes for $1.25 and makes for 12 servings. That’s just over 10 cents per serving!Here are some tips on how to save money and stay healthy with beans.1. Use Dry beans. They're one of the most affordable foods out there. Soak overnight, boil until soft and you're good to go. Check the package for instructions.2. Use beans to enrich other foods. Add beans to rice, soup and pasta sauce for extra protein and iron. You can even add them to ready-made frozen veggie mixes or stir fry meals.3. Reduce the amount of meat in recipes and add beans instead when making chili, stir fries and pasta.4. Take any meat-based recipe and turn it vegetarian by substituting beans - red beans tend to work well in this capacity.5. Take a bean of your choice (garbanzos and white beans are popular) and use it on any salad - including pasta salad.6. Sneaky beans! Add cooked white (cannellini) beans to potatoes and mash as usual to sneak some beans into you and your family's diet.Enjoy!
  • Natural flavors added. Learn why
    Companies add flavorings to make products taste better. They are created in a lab and the formulations are guarded as trade secrets. Flavorings can compensate for flavor loss during processing, substitute for ingredients, lower production costs and increase shelf stability. Natural flavorings are more expensive to source than artificial flavors, but tend to be better received by consumers.People sensitive to MSG, vegans, vegetarians and those with allergies should pay special attention to the phrase "natural flavorings" since glutamates, animal products or allergens may be the source of natural flavors. You can always contact the manufacturer for more information.
  • Great source of protein and fiber
    Great source of protein and fiber. Watch for sodium in canned versions.
