  • Compliments of Vitamins & Minerals
    The micronutrients (Vitamins/Minerals) play an important role by ensuring proper functioning of cells and tissues. 
    Each vitamin and trace mineral play a specific role in the body. For example,  Vitamin C acts as antioxidant protecting cells from environmental damage, healing wounds and maintaining connective tissue whereas minerals like sodium, potassium and chloride function as electrolytes that assist in communication between cells necessary for nerve impulses and muscle contraction. 
    Some products mimic the nature by adding artificial vitamins or minerals  which have an identical form and function to those found in nature, but they are manufactured synthetically to meet extremely high standards of processed products.
  • Fibre Source
    Product with decent amount of Dietary Fibre (5%-10% of day's recommended intake) is better than a similar one with zero or negligible amount of fibre) - at least it's a start! 

    Packaged foods generally do not have Dietary fibre so a product with some amount of dietary fibre is always welcome. 

    Fibre is not a nutrient but plays a key role in managing your body regularities - Bowel movement - Keeping constipation at bay, a control on Blood Sugar spike and check on blood cholesterol. 

    However, follow the principle of balance and don't go overboard by eating only fibre rich food.
  • High in Fat

    Calories in a food come from carbohydrates, protein and fat. The above product however has more calories from fat, which is not desirable and thus is considered “high in fat”.

    So think again before you go binging on it, as every gram of fat matters!

  • Know your Food - Flavouring Substances
    Flavouring Substances are added to Food products either to regain the flavour it would have lost during processing e.g. juices or to add a new desired flavour e.g. in case of biscuits, vanilla flavour may be added to otherwise food product without any flavour.

    Based on the resemblance of the flavouring substance to its natural occurrence, it is classified as natural, nature identical or artificial flavouring substance. Read this blog to find more about different flavouring substances.
  • Know your Ingredient - Edible Vegetable Fat“Edible Vegetable fats” in the ingredient list of a food product can be hydrogenated vegetable oil, bakery shortening, margarine, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils or Vanaspati (i.e. vegetable ghee). The keyword here is vegetable i.e. the fat is produced from a plant source not from animal source like milk.

    Commonly, edible vegetable oil is converted from its liquid to solid or semi-solid form through the hydrogenation. The edible vegetable fat produced in this manner may also contain some amount of Trans Fat, whose consumption should be restricted.

    However, some companies use edible vegetable fat produced from more advanced processing like fractionation thereby making it, trans fat free.
  • Highly Processed!
    Additives are added to the packaged foods for different reasons varying from increasing shelf life, to provide flavour and texture, increasing nutrition quality or required to manufacture some types of food. 

    One of the ways to determine the degree of Processing is the number of additives you find in the ingredient list. The higher the number of additives greater is the degree of processing. Additives can be identified by looking for ingredients that begin with 'E' and have a number in them. 

    It is generally recommended that food that is closer to nature is better hence it is better to choose food products with lesser number of additives.
  • Loaded with Sugar

    Each serving of the product has at least 1 teaspoon (5g) of sugar in it which makes it a sugar rich product.

    One of the immediate side effects of high sugar intake is increase in fat deposits in the body which may increase your risk for obesity,diabetes and a host of other conditions.

    Also, some studies suggest that its not FAT but sugar that is the cause for excess weight gain. Hence, best to avoid.
