Current Product
  • 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.
  • Food Sensitivity Alert - Soy (Lecithin)
    Lecithin is naturally available from soya bean (Plant source) and from egg yolk (Animal Source). 

    A product marked as Vegetarian is likely to get its Lecithin from soya bean plant. It should be noted that Lecithin is produced from Soya bean oil, hence does not include Soy protein. As a result people with soya sensitivity may not get affected by it. 

    Consume this product based on your sensitivity towards Soy and Lecithin.
  • 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 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.
  • High in Sugar
    Sugar is a source of Instant Energy which if not used mainly by muscles, is stored as Fat.
    One of the immediate side effects of High Sugar diet is insulin surge and increase in fat deposits in the body. 

    Long term use of diets high in sugar are linked to increased risk for diabetes, obesity and contributes to cravings, mood swings, PMS, and a host of other conditions. Also, some studies suggest that its not FAT but sugar that is the cause for higher intake calorie and excess weight gain. Now no need to go to other extreme and drop sugar completely from your diet.

    So, it is better to limit the consuming products like these which are high in sugar or better still avoid them.
