NUTRITION INFO [per Serving]
Calories
2245KCal
112%
It provides 2245KCal equal to about 112% of DV

A calorie is a unit of energy. The number of calories foods contain tells us how much potential energy they posses.
The human body needs calories (energy) to survive, without energy our cells would die, our hearts and lungs would stop, and we would perish. We acquire this energy from food and drink.

Protein
30g
40%
It provides 30g equal to about 40% of DV

Most all the parts of our bodies are made from protein: hair, skin, blood, organs, and muscles. It is needed for cells to grow. It also repairs or replaces healthy cells and tissues. Protein in food gives us calories - 4 calories in one gram. If we do not get enough calories from fat and carbohydrates we may use protein for energy.

Water
219g
21%
It provides 219g equal to about 21% of DV

Water serves as a solvent for nutrients and delivers nutrients to cells, while it also helps the body eliminate waste products from the cells. Both the spaces between cells (intercellular spaces) and the spaces inside cells (intracellular spaces) are filled with water. Water lubricates joints and acts as shock absorbers inside the eyes and spinal cord. Amniotic fluid, which is largely water, protects the fetus from bumps and knocks.

Calcium
474mg
47%
It provides 474mg equal to about 47% of DV

Calcium is a mineral that is important for building strong bones and teeth. Almost all of the calcium we use in our bodies is for building strong bones. A very small amount is needed to help our heart, nerves and muscles work.

Carbohydrate
236g
78%
It provides 236g equal to about 78% of DV

Carbohydrates are the body's main source of energy. There are three different kinds of carbohydrates. They include starch, sugar, and fiber. Starch is made from chains of small sugars. When these chains are broken down during digestion, we get energy. We get 4 calories from each gram of starch (or sugar).

Fiber
4g
16%
It provides 4g equal to about 16% of DV

Fiber is one kind of carbohydrate. It's the part of plant foods that our bodies do not break down during digestion. Because fiber isn't digested, it doesn't give us calories.
Fiber is important for keeping the digestive tract working smoothly. Since we do not digest it, the fiber in food passes into the intestine and absorbs water. The undigested fiber creates "bulk" so the muscles in the intestine can push waste out of the body.

Iron
4mg
21%
It provides 4mg equal to about 21% of DV

Iron is a mineral that is an important part of our red blood cells. It is needed to carry oxygen from our lungs to our cells, muscles and organs.

Magnesium
58mg
14%
