  • Over 60% of daily saturated fat!
    Bad! More 60% 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.
  • Keep an eye on the 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 contains more than 22% of your daily cholesterol intake.

    If you still are on a low cholesterol diet, please keep in mind:
    • nutritionists are not recommending you go out and binge on cheeseburgers and fries.
    • 10% of your daily allowance can quickly become 50% when a hamburger turns into double cheeseburger.

      Want 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 37% 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.
  • Whoa! What a high amount of calories!
    This product really has a lot of calories.
    Energy(calories) is required to implement body metabolism and physical activity.
    If we consume more energy than we use for metabolism and physical activity, all that surfeit will be stored as body fat.

    So you're not following a high calorie diet or not trying to gain weight, you may want to revise the wish to eat it.

    If You are trying to gain weight or following high calorie diet try out the healthy suggestions:
    • Consume more nuts.
    You can add over 600 calories to your daily intake only with a 100 g of hazelnuts, almonds or walnuts.
    Nuts and seeds are high in calories and fiber and full of good Omega fats.
    Take any meal and add to it some nuts.
    • add extra olive oil to your main dishes and salads;
    • increase your healthy carbohydrate intake with whole wheat products such as pasta, crackers an so on;
    • eat more brown or wild rice, buckwheat and other grains;
    • Even eat some dark chocolate.

    Avoid using animal fats, fried foods and greasy snacks as they have huge amount of trans-fats, cholesterol and other unhealthy elements.
  • Sodium erythorbate, will it keep you safe?
    It's a new type of additive and is a synthetic variation of ascorbic acid - Vitamin C.
    It is used to keep a wide variety of foods fresh - from meats and canned fruits and vegetables to wines, jams and soft drinks.
    During the process of cooking or digestion of certain processed meats, nitrites in them combine with naturally present amines and form carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds, which are associated with cancer.
    Sodium erythorbate (or ascorbic acid) helps to prevent the formation of these cancer-causing chemicals.
