  • Very high in saturated fat
    Not all fats are created equal. Saturated fats are the ones responsible for bad cholesterol buildup in our blood vessels, as well as contributing to coronary disease.
  • For dieters: FoodPoints value is 7
    * FoodPoints are calculated by Fooducate based on fats, carbs, fiber, and protein. They are not an endorsement or approval of the product or its manufacturer. The fewer points - the better.
  • Contains sulfites
    Sulfites are inorganic salts that have antioxidant and preservative properties. Examples that appear on food labels are sulfur dioxide, sodium bisulfite, sodium sulfate,  and potassium bisulfite. May cause severe reactions in people with sensitivity to sulfites, especially in asthmatics.
  • Highly Processed!
    This product is highly processed. If you'll take a look at its ingredient list, you'll discover new words to add to your vocabulary. Many of theses ingredients are required to increase the shelf life of the product and improve the flavor that disappears when food is not fresh.
  • Watch the cholesterol...
    While cholesterol has been shown to be less harmful than once believed, you should not consume more than 300mg a day. This product contains more than 10% of your daily cholesterol intake. If you're on a low cholesterol diet, make sure you pay attention to portion: 10% of your daily allowance can quickly become 50% when a hamburger turns into double cheeseburger. Trouble sticking to daily goals? Try limiting your meat, cheese and dairy intake to one item per meal and avoid items with multiple sources of cholesterol (like chicken with ham and cheese, breakfast sandwiches with sausage and cheese or bacon cheeseburgers). Opt for items like BLT's, chicken sandwiches with veggies and meatless pizza. Choose water and not milk for your main mealtime beverage.
  • Learn about Maltodextrin, found here
    Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. A polysaccharide is a type of carbohydrate. It is produced from starches of corn, wheat, potatoes or rice. Its flavor can be slightly sweet or almost flavorless. Maltodextrin is used as a bulking base for artificial sweeteners, for example in Jell-o it is used in conjunction with Aspartame and Acesulfame Potassium. It is also the bulking agent in Splenda.
  • Learn about Xanthan Gum, found here
    Xanthan gum is an emulsifier. It helps ingredients blend more effectively and stay blended while waiting on a shelf. For example – water and oil mixtures, as well as bits of spice in a salad dressing. Xanthan Gum is made by fermenting corn sugar with a bacteria, Xanthomonas campestris. It’s the same bacteria that creates black spots on broccoli and cauliflower. The result is a slimy goo that is then dried up and ground into a fine white powder.
  • What is Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate?
    Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate is a chemical similar to lactic acid used in the processing of food. The FDA and consumer organizations have found it safe. We don't think it's dangerous, however, it is an indicator that the product is processed. We like that it's biodegradable, but still . . . it provides no nutritional value and few consumer benefits. When buying food, keep in mind that the presence of Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate means that this item is processed. It makes bread look big and fluffy, icing look light and pillowy, and reduces the amount of fat and sugar needed in baked goods. Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate makes processed food cheaper, more beautiful and gives it a more appealing texture. We recommend avoiding it if because we like food to be processed as little as possible . . .
  • Calcium chloride and waste reduction...
    Calcium chloride is thought of as OK for your health, though some advise that it could cause slight stomach irritation. When used as an additive in products like jellies or cheeses, it causes the food to firm up. When used in tomato-based products it prevents disintegration. It also adds a tiny bit of saltiness without adding sodium. This additive is a by-product of The Solvay process. In this process, carbon dioxide is mixed with table salt and ammonia to create soda ash (or potash) and other products, like baking soda. One of the problems is that this process produces waste - a lot of waste. As a result of this and other technological advances, the last Solvay plant in the US closed in 1986. But the process continues in other parts of the world. While more and more calcium chloride is removed from the waste in settling ponds or dumped directly into the sea, the issue of what to do with this by-product is still relevant. By using calcium chloride as a food additive, manufacturers are actually reducing the amount of waste that is put back into the environment. Whether this is a "reuse" effort you want to be a part of is up to you . . .
