  • 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 28% 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 26% 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
  • 10 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 naturally good source of 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.
  • 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.
