  • Much saturated fat
    Too much saturated fat raises blood cholesterol, that can increase the risk of heart disease.
    This fact has been approved by most health organizations in the world.
    You have to limit the intake of it by your recommended daily intake.
    Ideally, we should eat less than 10% of calories from saturated fat, so the reference value for an average adult is 24 grams daily.
    Remember: a 1-ounce slice of regular cheese has nearly 5 grams of saturated fat.

  • Salty! Has over 19% 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
  • Great! Contains less than 1.5 tsp of sugar.
    Great! Contains less than 1.5 tsp of sugar per serving!
  • More than 8% daily fiber!
    Eat more fiber. You've heard it many times. But why it is so good for your health?
    Dietary fiber is best known for its ability to make our digestion going right.
    So want to prevent or relieve constipation - eat more fiber!
    There are also other great health benefits as well, such as lowering your risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer, and helping to maintain a healthy weight by helping to feel you full longer.
    The best source of fiber are fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes and not processed foods with added fiber.
  • A naturally good source of Vitamin C
    You get real, natural easy absorbing Vitamin C from this product, not as a artificial fortified ingredient.
    This is great! Let's try to get the best from the real food, because we get too much from artificial ingredients nowdays.
  • Carrageenan is an additive made from seaweed.
    It is used as a thickener in products such as ice cream, jelly, chocolate milk, infant formula, cottage cheese.
    It is a vegetarian and vegan alternative to gelatin.
    It has been used for hundreds of years in Ireland and China, but only made headway into modern food processing in the last 50 years.
    The processing steps after harvesting the seaweed include drying, grounding, filtration, treatment with potassium hydroxide, removal of cellulose by centrifuge, concentration by evaporation, drying, and grounding.
    Interestingly, the Philippines account for the vast majority of the world supply of carrageenan.
    In some animal studies, carrageenan was shown to cause intestinal lacerations and tumors.
    A 2001 meta-study of 45 peer-reviewed studies concluded that carrageenan consumption may result in gastrointestinal malignancy and inflammatory bowel.
    The FDA has approved carrageenan as safe, basing its decision on industry funded studies.
    European agencies and the World Health Organization have also deemed carrageenan safe, with the exception of infant formula.
    The fear is the a baby's gut may be unable to handle the large carrageenan molecules.
    In some individuals carrageenan may cause intestinal discomfort or worse.
  • Contains MSG-like ingredients
    People feeling reaction to MSG may also react adversely to MSG-like substances.
    Glutamates or chemically similar items are added to improve a product's taste.

    Here is a short list of common MSG-like substances:
    • Yeast extract
    • Autolyzed yeast
    • Hydrolyzed proteins
    • Textured proteins
    • Anything "enzyme modified"
  • Product contains sulfites
    Sulfites (sulphites) are inorganic salts that are used as antioxidant of food preservative or enhancer.
    They may appear on food labels in various forms, such as: sulfur dioxide, potassium bisulfite, potassium metabisulfite, sodium bisulfite, sodium metabisulfite or sodium sulfite
    Although sulphites do not cause a true allergic reaction, people with sensitivity to sulfites may experience similar reactions as those with food allergies.
    Those who have asthma are most at risk to sulphite sensitivity.
    BTW sulfites are included in the ten priority food allergens in Canada.
