  • 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.

  • 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
  • 6 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.
  • 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.
