  • Much saturated fat
    Too much saturated fat raises blood cholesterol, that can increase the risk of heart disease.
    This fact has been approved by most health organizations in the world.
    You have to limit the intake of it by your recommended daily intake.
    Ideally, we should eat less than 10% of calories from saturated fat, so the reference value for an average adult is 24 grams daily.
    Remember: a 1-ounce slice of regular cheese has nearly 5 grams of saturated fat.

  • 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 14% 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 21% 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!
  • More than 8% daily fiber!
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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
    • Not a really good source of calcium!
      Cheese is a generally a good source of calcium (more than 10% daily value per serving) - but not this.
      If you are looking for calcium - swap for something with higher calcium content.
      By the way, you don't need high fat or calories to get high calcium.
      Many "lite" versions of cheese provide 30% of daily calcium needs.
      Choose cheeses that are a naturally good source of calcium.
      If you're worried about fat and calories, pre-sliced cheese, cheese sticks or cheese squares
      are a great way to make sure your portion is the right size.
      The FDA defines a serving of cheese as 1 ounce (30 grams).
    • 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.
