  • Over 25% of daily saturated fat!
    Bad! More 25% 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.
  • Salty! Has over 24% 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
  • 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 16% 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.
  • Interested in getting more protein?
    Protein is important, but some of the protein you find in this product isn't exactly natural.
    The protein comes from one of the following sources:
    • milk protein concentrate
    • whey protein isolate
    • soy protein isolate
    While it's fine to get some of your protein from supplemented items, keep in mind that they are not "natural" sources
    and that it's not ideal to get protein only from processed goods.
    If you're looking for more protein, try beans, quinoa, nuts, seeds, peas and spinach & leafy greens.
    Not only do they have protein, they're filled with other vitamins and minerals.
  • Contains MSG!
    Monosodium Glutamate is used as a flavor enhancer with an umami taste that intensifies the meaty, savory flavor of food.
    Naturally occurring glutamate does it in foods such as stews and meat soups.

    Despite the fact that MSG is one of the most extensively studied food ingredients and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by FDA.
    Some people should steer away from it as they feel that react adversely to MSG.

    MSG is generally found in processed, low-quality foods, stuff that you shouldn’t be eating much.

    REMEMBER: Any food ingredient listed as hydrolyzed, protein-fortified, ultra-pasteurized, fermented or enzyme-modified is often MSG, or creates free glutamic acid during processing.
  • Contains MSG-like ingredients
    People feeling reaction to MSG may also react adversely to MSG-like substances.
    Glutamates or chemically similar items are added to improve a product's taste.

    Here is a short list of common MSG-like substances:
    • Yeast extract
    • Autolyzed yeast
    • Hydrolyzed proteins
    • Textured proteins
    • Anything "enzyme modified"
  • 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.
