  • Salty! Has over 18% 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 source of fiber! More than 12% daily!
    Eat more fiber. You've heard it many times. But why it is so good for your health?
    Dietary fiber is best known for its ability to make our digestion going right.
    So want to prevent or relieve constipation - eat more fiber!
    There are also other great health benefits as well, such as lowering your risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer, and helping to maintain a healthy weight by helping to feel you full longer.
    The best source of fiber are fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes and not processed foods with added fiber.
  • 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 milk protein concentrate
    Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) is a white to light-cream-colored dry powder.
    It is a very cheap milk byproduct of skim milk through a series of processes that includes ultrafiltration,
    evaporation and drying of the milk until it reaches a powder form.
    Some more info:
    • Most of the MPC's are imported as a dry powder from countries with lax food safety regulations (China for example).
    • MPC's are added to processed food products to increase the amount of protein without increasing the carbs.
    Some view the increased presence of MPC in food products as a result of the low-carb diet craze, others see it as a way to cheaply increase the nutrition of processed foods.
  • Carrageenan is an additive made from seaweed.
    It is used as a thickener in products such as ice cream, jelly, chocolate milk, infant formula, cottage cheese.
    It is a vegetarian and vegan alternative to gelatin.
    It has been used for hundreds of years in Ireland and China, but only made headway into modern food processing in the last 50 years.
    The processing steps after harvesting the seaweed include drying, grounding, filtration, treatment with potassium hydroxide, removal of cellulose by centrifuge, concentration by evaporation, drying, and grounding.
    Interestingly, the Philippines account for the vast majority of the world supply of carrageenan.
    In some animal studies, carrageenan was shown to cause intestinal lacerations and tumors.
    A 2001 meta-study of 45 peer-reviewed studies concluded that carrageenan consumption may result in gastrointestinal malignancy and inflammatory bowel.
    The FDA has approved carrageenan as safe, basing its decision on industry funded studies.
    European agencies and the World Health Organization have also deemed carrageenan safe, with the exception of infant formula.
    The fear is the a baby's gut may be unable to handle the large carrageenan molecules.
    In some individuals carrageenan may cause intestinal discomfort or worse.
  • 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"
