About our nutrition information

To meet nutrient needs each day, moderately active women 25 to 49 need about 1,900 calories, 51 g protein, 261 g carbohydrate, 25 to 35 g fibre and not more than 63 g total fat (21 g saturated fat). Men and teenagers usually need more.

Canadian sodium intake of approximately 3,500 mg daily should be reduced, whereas the intake of potassium from food sources should be increased to 4,700 mg per day.

Percentage of recommended daily intake (% RDI) is based on the values used for Canadian food labels for calcium, iron, vitamins A and C, and folate. Figures are rounded off. They are based on the first ingredient listed when there is a choice and do not include optional ingredients or those with no specified amounts.

The Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Nut-Free flags have been assigned assuming the recipe has been made with commonly available foods, not those that have been specifically modified for these preferences or allergies.

Abbreviations:
cal = calories
pro = protein
carb = carbohydrate
sat. fat = saturated fat
chol = cholesterol
