NUTRITION INFO [per Serving]
Calories
632KCal
31%
It provides 632KCal equal to about 31% 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
11g
15%
It provides 11g equal to about 15% 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
208g
20%
It provides 208g equal to about 20% 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
120mg
12%
It provides 120mg equal to about 12% 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
65g
21%
It provides 65g equal to about 21% 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
5g
20%
It provides 5g equal to about 20% 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
3mg
15%
It provides 3mg equal to about 15% 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
61mg
15%
It provides 61mg equal to about 15% of DV

Magnesium is an abundant mineral in the body. It's required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione.

Sugars
12g
12%
It provides 12g equal to about 12% of DV

Sugars are carbohydrates that provide the body with energy, our body’s fuel. Sugars occur naturally in fruit, vegetables and dairy foods and are added to foods for flavour, texture and colour.

Salt
1685mg
70%
It provides 1685mg equal to about 70% of DV

Sodium is important for keeping a balance in pressure between the inside and outside of our cells. Too much sodium can lead to high blood pressure. High blood pressure may increase the risk for having a heart attack or stroke.

Phosphorus
235mg
23%
It provides 235mg equal to about 23% of DV

Phosphorus is a mineral that makes up 1% of a person's total body weight.
The main function of phosphorus is in the formation of bones and teeth. It plays an important role in how the body uses carbohydrates and fats. It is also needed for the body to make protein for the growth, maintenance, and repair of cells and tissues.

Potassium
562mg
16%
It provides 562mg equal to about 16% of DV

Potassium is a mineral found in varying amounts in almost all foods. Diets high in potassium are associated with improved blood pressure control.

Fat
37g
41%
It provides 37g equal to about 41% of DV

Fat is a nutrient that is an important source of calories. One gram of fat supplies 9 calories - more than twice the amount we get from carbohydrates or protein. Fat also is needed to carry and store essential fat-soluble vitamins, like vitamins A and D.

Saturated Fat
5g
23%
It provides 5g equal to about 23% of DV

This is a type of fat that comes mainly from animal sources of food, such as red meat, poultry and full-fat dairy products. Saturated fat raises total blood cholesterol levels and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels.

Vitamin C
135mg
225%
It provides 135mg equal to about 225% of DV

Vitamin C helps form a cement-like material between our cells. We need vitamin C to heal cuts, wounds, and burns. When we don't get enough vitamin C the "cement" between cells loses its strength and can cause us to bleed easily. It may show up as bleeding gums or bruises.

Thiamin
164µg
10%
It provides 164µg equal to about 10% of DV

Thiamin is one of a group of vitamins called the "B vitamins." Another name for thiamin is vitamin B1. Thiamin works with other B vitamins to help your body use the energy it gets from food.

Riboflavin
283µg
16%
It provides 283µg equal to about 16% of DV

Riboflavin is one of a group of vitamins called "B vitamins." Another name for riboflavin is vitamin B2. Riboflavin works with other B vitamins to help your body use the energy you get from food. It also helps the body to use protein in food to build new cells and tissues.

Niacin
3mg
12%
It provides 3mg equal to about 12% of DV

Niacin is one of a group of vitamins called the "B vitamins." Niacin works with other B vitamins to help your body use the energy you get from food. It is also important to help use protein from the diet to build new cells and tissues.

Vitamin B6

It provides 454µg equal to about 22% of DV

Vitamin B6 is also called pyridoxine. It is involved in the process of making serotonin and norepinephrine, which are chemicals that transmit signals in the brain. Vitamin B6 is also involved in the formation of myelin, a protein layer that forms around nerve cells.

Folate

27%
It provides 111µg equal to about 27% of DV

Folic acid is important for making blood and building cells. It is also called folate or folacin. Folic acid is found in many food groups in the Food Guide Pyramid.
The need for folic acid increases during pregnancy because the fetus is constantly growing.
