NUTRITION INFO [per Serving]
Calories
2251KCal
112%
It provides 2251KCal 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
115g
153%
It provides 115g equal to about 153% 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
399g
39%
It provides 399g equal to about 39% 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
343mg
34%
It provides 343mg equal to about 34% 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
47g
15%
It provides 47g equal to about 15% 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
7g
27%
It provides 7g equal to about 27% 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

It provides 163mg equal to about 40% 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
2g

It provides 827mg equal to about 82% 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

It provides 99mg equal to about 165% 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
