  • 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 15% 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!
  • 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.
  • Learn about veggies and iron
    Veggies such as broccoli, bok choy, spinach, parsley and most leafy greens are naturally high in iron.
    However, compared to other high-iron foods, like red meat, fish and poultry, the iron in plant foods is not absorbed as easily by the body. What can you do to increase the absorption of iron from these plant foods?
    • Vitamin C increases the absorption - so try having a fresh tomato, lemon juice, or an orange together with your high iron food
    • Avoid drinking too much coffee - caffeine can decrease the absorption of iron
    • In addition to caffeine, the tannins found in tea can also reduce iron absorption
    • If you are a vegetarian, try having iron-fortified breakfast cereals, legumes, and eggs
    • 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!
      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"
    • Controversial additive BHT present
      BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) is primarily used as an antioxidant food additive, mainly to prevent oils and fats in foods from oxidizing and becoming rancid.
      It is GRAS in the US, but forbidden as food additive in Japan (since 1958), Romania, Sweden, and Australia.
      Some studies have shown that it is carcinogenic.
      Avoid it, there are foods available without this danger.
