Ingredients And Nutrition Overview

  • 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 32% 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 10% 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.
  • Naturally high in 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.
  • Learn about veggies and iron
    Veggies such as broccoli, bok choy, spinach, parsley and most leafy greens are naturally high in iron.
    However, compared to other high-iron foods, like red meat, fish and poultry, the iron in plant foods is not absorbed as easily by the body. What can you do to increase the absorption of iron from these plant foods?
    • Vitamin C increases the absorption - so try having a fresh tomato, lemon juice, or an orange together with your high iron food
    • Avoid drinking too much coffee - caffeine can decrease the absorption of iron
    • In addition to caffeine, the tannins found in tea can also reduce iron absorption
    • If you are a vegetarian, try having iron-fortified breakfast cereals, legumes, and eggs
