  • 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.
  • Good Source of Fibre
    More than 10% of the recommended intake of Dietary Fibre - Wow That's Good!

    Fibre plays an important 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 Good FatGood Fat ! Yes that's correct, Fat is not all bad. The Unsaturated Fat is also referred to as the Healthier Fat as it is source of essential fats (Omega 3 & Omega 6). Fats and oils that we generally consume are rich in omega 6 so try an incorporate the essential omega 3 containing foods in your daily diet. To identify the healthy fat in a food product, look for the Monounsaturated Fat (MUFA) and Polyunsaturated Fat (PUFA) on the nutrition label of the food. The higher the share these types have in the Total Fat or Lipid the better is the product. This does not mean that you should have more of a product just because it is high in Unsaturated Fats. While selecting a food product prefer the one with energy from Fat not be more 30% of total energy available in the product and there is more of the unsaturated fats.
  • Low in Sugar
    Carbohydrate is a energy giving nutrient present in significant percentage in most of the food especially packaged ones. Energy from Carbohydrate is mainly due to Starch and Sugar . In fact the ideal ratio for energy giving nutrients in food suggests that carbohydrates should give about 65% of total energy available in the food. Lots of packaged foods get more than 4%-5% of their energy from sugar unless it uses sugar substitutes. Products like this one, which have low sugar not using sugar substitutes are in a minority and are preferable to the ones with higher sugar.
  • Know your Food- Sugar and its Aliases
    Some Food Products mask the amount of Added Sugar by using multiple forms of sugar and avoid displaying Sugar as one of the first ingredient. All Ingredient list are in descending order by their weight, so the position of sugar and its aliases can give an indication of the amount of 'Added Sugar'.

    Though the Nutrition Fact label on the food product gives you the Total Sugar, the regulation does not require the break up between natural and added sugar to be given. Thus, it is important to know the different sources of sugar that may be present in a food product to get an idea of added sugar. 

    At the same time it is important to understand that the body does not distinguish between natural and added sugar, so take note of the Total Sugar in the Nutritional Fact label.
