  • Salty! Has over 30% of the daily max
    Americans consume 4000 mg of sodium daily when the maximum recommended amount is 2300mg for healthy adults. Many people should not exceed 1500mg. Most of the sodium (65%) in our diet comes from processed foods, not home cooking or the salt shaker. Excess sodium intake increases blood pressure, causes hypertension and other heart problems. That's why most of us need to cut back.
  • Controversial additive TBHQ in here
    TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone) is an antioxidant used to keep oils from going rancid. It is a petroleum derivative. Yummy. The food industry pushed the FDA for years to get it approved as a preservative despite the fact that ingestion of large doses (a thirtieth of an ounce) can cause nausea, delirium, and ringing of the ears. (Anyone remember what Jack Nicholson had for lunch in The Shininga?) TBHQ cannot exceed 0.02% of the oil and fat content in a food.
  • Highly Processed!
    This product is highly processed. If you'll take a look at its ingredient list, you'll discover new words to add to your vocabulary. Many of theses ingredients are required to increase the shelf life of the product and improve the flavor that disappears when food is not fresh.
  • Watch the cholesterol...
    While cholesterol has been shown to be less harmful than once believed, you should not consume more than 300mg a day. This product contains more than 10% of your daily cholesterol intake.If you're on a low cholesterol diet, make sure you pay attention to portion: 10% of your daily allowance can quickly become 50% when a hamburger turns into double cheeseburger. Trouble sticking to daily goals? Try limiting your meat, cheese and dairy intake to one item per meal and avoid items with multiple sources of cholesterol (like chicken with ham and cheese, breakfast sandwiches with sausage and cheese or bacon cheeseburgers). Opt for items like BLT's, chicken sandwiches with veggies and meatless pizza. Choose water and not milk for your main mealtime beverage.
  • Contains dimethylpolysiloxane
    Dimethylpolysiloxane is an anti-foaming agent used in oil when frying. It's a type of silicon and is found in many non-food items, like Silly Putty and cosmetics. But is it safe to eat?According to the FDA, the World Health Organization and other researchers, this chemical is perfectly safe to eat. According to FDA regulations, formaldehyde (a carcinogen) may be used “as a preservative in defoaming agents containing dimethylpolysiloxane” However, when choosing chicken patties and other pre-fried foods, choose those without added chemicals. Even better, swap pre-fried foods (like chicken patties) for non-fried versions (grilled chicken breast). You can have all the convenience, without the chemicals or added fat from frying.
  • Sodium Aluminum Phosphate
    This product contains sodium aluminum phosphate. Food manufacturers will tell you that this additive is not a problem. And yes, normally, people will have some amount of aluminum in their body by means of inhalation, ingestion or dermal contact.The Department of Health and Human services says most this aluminum will leave your body quickly through feces, and the small amount that enters your bloodstream will leave via urine, but . . . they also say that excess aluminum can cause problems. Some research has implicated aluminum with Alzheimer's and research both supports and refutes this. Doctors blame aluminum of exacerbating the effects of kidney disease and causing bone or brain diseases.Bottom line: There's no tangible benefit of consuming products with sodium aluminum phosphate. To err on the side of safety, particularly with products you consume everyday, choose ones without added aluminum.
