  • Salty! Has over 29% of the daily sodium max
    The average American consumes 5,000 mg of sodium daily — twice the recommended amount amount of 2400mg for healthy adults, this is 1 teaspoon of salt.
    For medical reasons many people should not exceed 1500mg of sodium.
    Surprisingly, you're responsible for only 15% of the sodium in your diet the bigger part - 75% of the sodium that you consume each day comes from processed foods, not home cooking or the salt shaker.
    Excess sodium intake increases the risk of high blood pressure, hypernatremia, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and other heart problems.
    Are these reasons enough to cut the sodium intake? No doubt!
  • Convert Salt tsps to Sodium mg easily
    Salt (NaCl) is not excactly sodium (Na).
    It is not right to use these terms as synonyms.
    The FDA recommended limit of sodium is 2,300 mg per day (or even less - about 1500 mg while one is on low sodium diets).
    This is much less than the weight of salt.
    (5,750 mg per day or 3,750 mg for low sodium diet) and not so convenient to calculate.
    Know how much sodium is in your salt - without a calculator:
    1/4 tsp salt = 600 mg sodium
    1/2 tsp salt = 1200 mg sodium
    3/4 tsp salt = 1800 mg sodium
    1 tsp salt = 2300 mg sodium
  • 2 tsp of sugars per serving
    This volume includes both naturally occurring from ingredients and specially added sugars.
    USDA tells us that last years each American consumed an average 130 pounds of caloric sweeteners per year!
    That works out to 30 tsp of sugars per day approximately 480 extra calories!
    Just to think: Eating just 200 more calories daily than your body requires for body functioning and exercise leads to a 20-pound weight gain in a year.
  • Low fiber :-(
    It is not really good to have a breakfast with so little amount of fiber!
    Your morning meal should have more fiber or it won't have good effect on your health.
    You should add some natural fiber to your cereal or switch to a better one, that has more than 4g of fiber per serving.
    Some suggestions to make this product better:
    • add some fresh fruits or eat them as a dessert
    • add some seeds or nuts
    • add any high fiber cereal (for example Granola or bran)

    There is not much fiber in here and that's not good!
    Your breakfast should have more fiber and this cereal alone won't do the trick.
    Either switch to a healthier cereal (with at least 4 grams of naturally occurring fiber)
    or add some healthy natural fiber to your cereal or breakfast.

    TIPS on adding fiber to cereal:
    • Mix in some high fiber cereal, like wheat bran
    • Add 2 Tbsp of ground flax seeds
    • Eat fresh fruit or berries
  • A good source of protein
    For many vegans and vegetarians, it's important to get enough protein.
    The product you've just scanned will provide you with 18% or more of your daily protein requirement.
    If you're a vegan having trouble meeting your protein needs, try nuts and beans.
    Sprinkling nuts onto any dish is a quick, easy and nutritious solution.
    Try adding beans in places you might not normally eat them.
    Add beans to pasta dishes, stir fries and even salads.
    While meat alternatives like Tofu do provide a quick and easy protein intake, they should not be your only source of protein.
    Eat proteins from a variety of sources for best results.
  • Not a really good source of calcium!
    Cheese is a generally a good source of calcium (more than 10% daily value per serving) - but not this.
    If you are looking for calcium - swap for something with higher calcium content.
    By the way, you don't need high fat or calories to get high calcium.
    Many "lite" versions of cheese provide 30% of daily calcium needs.
    Choose cheeses that are a naturally good source of calcium.
    If you're worried about fat and calories, pre-sliced cheese, cheese sticks or cheese squares
    are a great way to make sure your portion is the right size.
    The FDA defines a serving of cheese as 1 ounce (30 grams).
