  • 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
  • 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.
  • Not a really good source of calcium!
    Cheese is a generally a good source of calcium (more than 10% daily value per serving) - but not this.
    If you are looking for calcium - swap for something with higher calcium content.
    By the way, you don't need high fat or calories to get high calcium.
    Many "lite" versions of cheese provide 30% of daily calcium needs.
    Choose cheeses that are a naturally good source of calcium.
    If you're worried about fat and calories, pre-sliced cheese, cheese sticks or cheese squares
    are a great way to make sure your portion is the right size.
    The FDA defines a serving of cheese as 1 ounce (30 grams).
  • Contains phosphoric acid
    Phosphoric acid is used as an additive to acidify foods and beverages such as various colas and jams.
    It provides them a tangy or sour taste and then, to mask and balance the acidity they add a huge amounts of sweeteners.
    Remember! It’s a corrosive acid and can form toxic fumes when it comes into contact with alcohols, ketones and other organic compounds.
    Phosphoric acid has been linked to lower bone density, dental erosion, risk of developing kidney disease.
    BTW: The clear sodas that contained citric acid didn’t have the same risk.

    American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: Carbonated Beverages and Urinary Calcium Excretion
    Epidemiology: Carbonated Beverages and Chronic Kidney Disease
    General Dentistry: Commercial Soft Drinks: pH and in Vitro Dissolution Of Enamel
    Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine: Teenaged Girls, Carbonated Beverage Consumption, and Bone Fractures
    Phosphoric acid has been linked to lower bone density in some epidemiological studies, including a discussion in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
