  • 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 12% 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 11% 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
  • Great! Contains less than 1.5 tsp of sugar.
    Great! Contains less than 1.5 tsp of sugar per serving!

  • This product is minimally processed

  • Healthy fish! Omega-3 & low toxins
    Sardines & Anchovies - good choice! Did you know sardines and anchovies are a great source of Omega-3? And they're one of the few fish choices that are known to be low in toxins like mercury. Here are some easy ways to add the little ocean dwellers into your diet without too much fuss: 1. Pasta sauce: anchovy paste or chopped anchovies make a tasty addition to pasta sauce - canned, bottled or homemade. 2. Pizza: never mind the old jokes about "no anchovies," these bite sized buggers are a tasty addition to pizza. If you're making your own, go easy, they could overpower the rest of the pizza's flavor. One per slice is enough. 3. Appetizer: sardines with a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and crackers - a classic no-fail French dish. Use crostinis or toast. 4. Salad: Follow the link below for a sardine salad recipe (chef's recipe). A word on sustainability: The most sustainable sardines are from the Pacific. If you're worried about overfishing, avoid sardines from the Atlantic and Mediterranean. Anchovies are generally sustainable, but check the label and the latest news for up-to-date information.
