  • Over 30% of daily saturated fat!
    Bad! More 30% of daily saturated fat!

    For years Saturated fat was claimed to raise cholesterol levels and give us heart attacks. Today different studies refute this claim. They say, that replacing saturated fat with carbohydrates or refined starch or sugar is not changing the heart disease risk. Not processed carbs nor saturated fats are good for you. Only if you replace it with polyunsaturated fat, you'll get a reduction in heart disease risk. So try to have a balanced diet.
  • Very high cholesterol
    Today cholesterol is no longer a villain. The 2010's USDA guidelines told us to limit cholesterol from foods
    Now experts say cholesterol is "not a nutrient of concern" because cholesterol from foods doesn't cause higher
    blood cholesterol levels.
    Nevertheless try to consume no more than 300 milligrams daily.
    This product has 90 mg of cholesterol or more.

    How to lower the cholesterol intake? Here are some advices
    • Try to limit your cheese, dairy and meat intake to one item per meal.
    • Avoid meals with multiple sources of cholesterol (chicken with cheese, junk food)
    • Try to indclude in your diet low- or nonfat dairy, seafood, legumes and nuts.
    • Choose water instead of milk for your coffee.
  • Salty! Has over 21% 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
  • 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.
